I tell you, when I look back on my career, that is one guy that I will say I was proud to play with. The guy is a great competitor. He is really a great guy to have on your team and to be your teammate. I respect the guy tremendously. We know he is going to be talking a lot and he is going to be fired up coming back here. That is great. He adds that to the game. He will be trying to whoop our buts, just like we will be trying to whoop his.
What it is going to be like emotionally to face a guy who you have that
It's going to be great. He is the kind of guy you want to play against.
He competes on every play. He loves the game. He has a passion for the

is what it comes down to. After the game, I will give him a big hug and
him how much I enjoyed playing with him.
Sure, once that whistle blows, we are all trying to win the game.
Jessie is no different. He has a lot of friends in this locker room,
but when it
game time on Sunday, he is going to hate us all. We are going to be the
enemies and like-wise with him. After the game, we can laugh, shake
hands and say hello, but during the game everybody out there is going
to be all about business.
Is it different preparing for a team you see twice every year?
little bit different this year with the Redskins. They have a new
coaching staff and new coordinators, so we don't have that familiarity
with them as we would with maybe the Eagles or Cowboys, whose coaching
staffs have been intact. We are still learning what they are doing, but
we are familiar with personnel. I think they are playing well as a
defense. They are ninth overall defensively in the NFL. They have two
great corners. Up front they are playing well. The linebackers are very
solid. They are playing about as well on defense as anyone we have
played this year.
Re: the Redskins secondary.
They are very, very good. You start with the corners. Smoot and Champ
are two of the best cover corners that we will play against this year.
alot of respect for them, but at the same time, we need to execute our
game plan as well as we can, take advantage of the opportunity here at
home and put some points on the board.
