The last few years it seems like there has been more downs then ups. At the same time I’m still excited about playing the game. I still really enjoy what I’m doing. I still feel like it’s just a tremendous privilege to play this game and to still be able to do it at the age of 32 is about the coolest thing I can think of. In spite of some hard times that we’ve been through as a team, and that I’ve been through on the field personally, I still come to work everyday excited about what’s going on and what I’m doing and look forward to every game.”'

Defensive Line Makes the Difference [12:06 PM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: 'When you're dealing with a lot of younger guys on defense, allowing them to get a chance to see adjustments on the overhead at halftime is beneficial. We have three first-year guys in the secondary in Terrence McGee, Jabari Greer, and Rashad Baker and those guys need to see film in order to understand how the opponent attacks our defense, as opposed to looking at photos on the sideline. It's not as if they play bad in the first half, it's just that the more a player sees something the more he tends to believe it.'
