This weekend it was good to relax for the last two games of the season. During the season whenever you get any downtime it’s good to take advantage of it. I kicked my feet up and watched some football on Sunday. And after a big win like we had, it heightened our playoff hopes. We beat the team at the top of the division. Now we have to get these last two, but that win definitely helped push us in the right direction.
After the game Coach McCoy gave a real emotional speech to us. It was huge. It magnifies our emotions as well because obviously we’re the ones on the field, but when you see your coach put that emotion and feeling into what he’s doing and his job, it makes you want to play harder.
Everyone always asks how Manti and I are playing. Basically I think everyone sees it out on the field. We’re learning to play off each other and we’re making plays on the field. That starts in practice and in the meeting room. Like we’ve said, we want to get better each week, and we’ve been doing that.
Now it’s Raiders Week. When it comes down to it, that’s all that needs to be said. We know what Raiders Week is all about and what it means, so we’ll be ready.
That’s it for now. I want to thank all you fans out there. We appreciate the support so come out to these last two games at home because we’re going to put on a show.
