There's not a favorite left or right, they're all blocking together. That's a lot of credit to the guys up front and they're making my job easy just to go one-on-one with defenders. That's not that hard, so that's the reason I think I'm playing like this. And also, I've been working hard and as a player you read things sometimes. You see things and you know, it drives you. I think that, the hard work and the guys up front, that's it, simply."'
