I’ll tell you what, last week was great. It’s funny, with those type of stats, you’d think it’s tough to win, but we did it. Our coaches, they’re working their butts off. The win was definitely a turning point for us and I’m blessed and happy for this team. I was just watching the offense and kept getting more and more excited.
For an opposing defense, It’s tough, man. Because nobody wants to get run on. I just thank God that the things we’ve been doing as a team have been working. I just pray to God that everything keeps going and we give Broncos Country this good football they deserve.
Now we’ve got Thursday Night Football, primetime, the only show in town. I’m excited. But when it’s all said and done, I want to share it amongst these guys, my teammates. I’m looking forward to the challenge, seeing our guys going out there and balling out.
It’s the third straight USC quarterback we’re about to play — first Carson Palmer, then Matt Cassel, now Mark Sanchez. Being a UCLA guy, it’s funny. But Mark Sanchez is probably one of the best quarterbacks I played against in college. He really motivated me for my first offseason because of the things he did to me when I was a freshman. So I’m looking forward to the challenge. That dude, he’s a competitor, and I’ll say it — he came from a great program. He’s cut from that cloth. So it’ll be fun out there tomorrow night.
