But this year, I've only been average. That's not good enough for me, and it's not good enough for this team. In a lot of ways, how I go is how this team goes. When I have good games, things seem to fall into line. So I put a lot of pressure on my own shoulders to get this team on track.
Physically, I feel great right now. The bye week was awesome. You get a chance to look introspectively at yourself - what can I do to get better? But also we got to heal up a lot. Not only myself, but a lot of other guys on this team were pretty beat up. We got a chance to heal up some, and also got a chance to get away from the game a little bit. It gave us a chance to find a new passion for the game.
The bye came at a great time for us. It was perfect. I don't know if we would have made it another week. We had a lot of people go down against Atlanta also. We needed this time to get healthy.
