When asked about the change in your performance, Aaron Kromer said it was the players around you playing better. In your eyes, what has been the difference in your production?

“I think a lot of it is finding our rhythm and getting in a groove. We, obviously, didn’t start off the season the way we wanted to. Just transitioning back into that game week preparation and the flow that we like to operate with (was important). I feel we’ve started to come back more towards the middle in regards to balance which is what we want as well. (It’s) a combination of all those things. Some guys getting healthy that were maybe a little banged up early on. Getting to that mindset a little bit too, of each week, the gameplan, prep, each guy knowing their role and then going out and executing it.”

With everything you had to say to the media last week, do you feel that the NFL is listening to your complaints and other players’ complaints?

“I am not sure. I hope so. I’d say based upon what we’ve seen from the past, probably not. I still think it’s appropriate and it needs to be said by guys like myself, (Scott) Fujita, and others that are close to the situation and maybe have a little bit more knowledge based upon the last couple of years, negotiations during the lockout, and the whole bounty thing. I’d say this, last week was the bye week, it was the opportunity to address some of those things. Obviously, it was fresh. Now, we are on to this week of preparation so it’s really out of my mind right now.”


Would you have any satisfaction if Jonathan Vilma was able to step onto the field and play?

“I hope that we’re closer to, obviously, the truth and justice being served. It seems like the longer that this goes, Vilma continues to fight for what’s right and for a fair process which I think is extremely justified. The fact that he was out there practicing today, it kind of puts a smile on everybody’s face knowing what he’s been through and having the opportunity to get him back.”


What will it be like seeing Ronde Barber at safety after always seeing him at cornerback?

“There are certain things, obviously, that a safety does where you are playing deep middle or you’re a deep half player or a little bit different than what he’s done in his career as a corner. Then you get into nickel situations and he is in and around the box and he’s over the slot and he does all of the things that he’s done forever. I still think they do a good job of getting him in those positions and you can see that he’s very comfortable there. (It’s a) little different, kind of the way that they’ve tweaked it. He is such a great athlete, versatile player and competitor that you can put him anywhere and he is a great football player.”

Was thinking the same thing, and probably more appropriate for now anyway.

Not sure I would say "ready to make a run"... more like keys in hand and headed for the door with a menu.

Looks like we are looking to far ahead, what happened to our normal mentality of one game at a time

Hey Drew! Pick me up a can of snuff while you're out, too.

Jeez, I have NO IDEA what ever happened to the "one game at a time" mentality of this team.... I mean I just don't know.... What the heck is going on in Drew's mind, he's certainly NOT thinking about one game at a time -- uh, except for the part where he actually says, those exact words, take it one at a time -- and he's certainly not thinking about the Tampa Bay game, this week, on the road, in the division, except for the part of the quote where that's ALL he talks about, this week, on the road, in the division.... obviously not thinking about that AT ALL!
