We’re 1-2, but I think we learned a lot these first three weeks as far as what we need to work on, what we need to get better at and what we’re good at. I think we’re hungry. We definitely want a win. We know how important this rivalry is, being a division game. We need to get back on track with a W. So we’re excited to get another opportunity against the Raiders.
One thing is there’s no quit in this team. That’s always a positive. You see teams, they get behind by a couple scores or have a rough stretch, just kind of give up. This team doesn’t give up. That’s a testament to the coaching staff and to the character of the guys on this team. That’s going to win you ballgames towards the end of the season.
I definitely am excited to get AFC West games started Sunday. This is really what it’s all about — winning your own division. Control your division and you set yourself up for a possible playoff spot. If you win your division, you get a spot. Every game is so important — division games are just more important.
A couple fan questions I wanted to get to. Daylon asked which current NFL wide receivers I’m a fan of. Since I’ve been in the league, I’ve always looked up to Larry Fitzgerald. I always watched his tape, just being friends, too, picked his mind as far as how to be better in certain situations. If it’s press coverage, if it’s route technique, things like that. Then I would say other guys I look at would be Andre Johnson or Calvin Johnson from Detroit. Just some of the bigger guys, as far as how they’re more physical and can get in and out of their cuts, being bigger guys.
As far as a question from Anurd, I love the orange jerseys. I’m excited that we made that switch — bring back the Orange Crush. As far as Nike jerseys, I had them all throughout college, so I was real comfortable getting back into them. I just think they’ve got a great feel, great fit and they look cool.
I’ll check back in next week. Hope you all are enjoying these blogs. Let me know what you want to hear about, and keep the questions coming.
