A: We just have to be physical, but, bedside all that, they just have to go out there and do their jobs. Whoever executes their job the best will win. Last year they came to play and we didn't show up. This is an opportunity for us to just go out there and show up.
Q: How important is to have a player like Ladarius Gunter on the field and what has his emergence meant to the secondary?
A: LG has just stepped it up. He's been playing great, and he is what he wants to be. He's able to cover those big receivers. He brings a certain juice to the field.
Q: Things haven't always looked good, going back through your career. How tough were those moments and how was it like to go through them?
A: It was tough. Your confidence takes a blow. A lot of people, yourself included, have a lot of expectations, but you have to understand that the final say comes from the man up top. You just have to be relentless and keep working at it. Even when you're working hard and you don't see the results, you have to keep working at it.
Q: What would you tribute your season to?
A: Faith. Just understanding and working hard and just having faith in coach Golden and coach D.
