Q: Can you talk about why you guys decided to wear Tashard (Choice)’s jersey at practice today?

A: We always do that. Guys are always changing jerseys. It was an emotional day especially in the running back room. We’re such a brotherhood in there, whenever you see one of your brothers leave it’s always sad. We understand the business side of it, it’s out of your control. We wish him well. I know him, I talked to him before he left he was a little hurt but I know he’ll bounce back. whoever picks him up, they’re getting a great player.

Q: Tampa is a team that likes to run the football, is this one of those games where it’s a battle of wills?

A: To me, I’m going in to the game trying to be balanced. We just want to have one more point than what they have at the end of the game. That’s the biggest thing; it’s not about all that other stuff. It’s all about who has that last point more than their opponent. That’s the mindset that you have to have and we want to have a balanced attack and I think we will.

Q: Do you feel there is some momentum in light of how successful the run game was last week?

A: it was great, but like I said going in to the game, each week is different. We had a great game against Kansas City and then fell off the tail end a little bit. Just had another good running day, but this team is going to be ready and you can take some good away from the tape and see what you’ve done well, but we just have to take what they give us.
