We’re back from the bye week and focused on another tough game this week.
During the bye, I went to New York to promote my foundation, Von’s Vision, which gives back to underprivileged kids who can’t afford glasses, eye exams, lasik surgery and contacts. I went to New York to promote that with the hip hop dance experience video game.
Every time I do that sack dance they donate $1,000 to my foundation, so hopefully I can make a couple of big plays and raise money for an important cause.
I’m going to change it up a little bit, but hopefully we can see it a lot of times this season. Every time I can do it, it means more money for Von’s Vision, which is very important to me.
It was great to get away from football and relax your mind for a bit, but you know what? There’s no job like this, and I’m happy to be back.
We face a really good offense this week led by Drew Brees. He’s a great quarterback and we’re definitely going to have to be on top of our stuff. We’re going to have to get off on third downs. Our personnel, we’re too deep, personnel wise, with Elvis, Champ, Rahim and Tracy Porter, we should be rated a lot higher on third downs. So, I’m hoping we have a positive week this week, get off on third downs and that’ll be a key to this game.
It’s always great to play a primetime game, for family and friends to see nation-wide, and it’s good for our city. It’s good for Denver to promote what we’re doing out here.
