For any NFL player, getting to the bye week is a real relief. We've had two full months of going non-stop without much rest. From camp to the preseason to the first four regular season weeks, that time takes a toll on both our bodies and our minds. So this time to rest the mind and allow the body to recover is important.
It is really inspiring to be a part of the Saints. A 4-0 start is great strictly from a football standpoint, but here in NOLA it is so much more. As a team we feel the joy in the city from the success we've had so far, and we feel a strong civic responsibility as the city continues to recover. As a new player, and new to the city, it is great to be part of that. Even as I head out to our home in South Florida with my family, I am looking forward mentally to the preparation for the Giants game. Having the experience of playing for the '07 Patriots, I know what it is like to be on a team that others are always gunning for. On top of that, the Giants are also undefeated (pending the Raiders game), so we've got a big game coming up.
After our film and team work, we will fly out to visit family and friends in Florida. In addition to the physical rest, I'll get mental rest by doing what I enjoy: watching football! I love going home during the season because it gives me a chance to see my "little brothers" play their games. I have a 7 year old close friend of the family who plays youth football and another friend who is a sophomore at my high school alma mater and I look forward to seeing them play. Youth and high school football is refreshing to me mentally.
We'll also take advantage of the time to host two receptions for the Heath Evans Foundation. We have a strong base in Palm Beach County, so any time we are there, we make sure to take time for donors who have been supportive. Then it is back to NOLA to face the Giants!
