Q: It has to be good to hear though, I know that you are a modest guy you are not going to go screaming, you are going to be in line for more carries and as a running back. You have to appreciate that?

A:  I mean you do, but at the same time it’s not like we aren’t going to use number 22 (Fred Jackson). We are going to use him. He is a playmaker on our team and he’s a leader on our team so like I said I’m just going to go out there when my number is called try and help my team win. Nothing really is going to change the way that I prepare now that I am going to be starting on Sunday.

Q: Have they changed the rotation with you guys going into this game?

A: Not really, they pretty much leave that up to us, me and Fred. He and I do a good job looking out for each other out there on the field. We have a good sense of when a guy needs a break or when we are going to switch it up. That is the thing that we loved about it that they left that up to us because that is a hard decision. We have two guys that are capable of making plays that try to figure out how many times they need to touch it so they left it up to me and him, and we discussed it and I like the rotation that we have.

Q: Chan used the words, specifically majority of snaps, in terms of you. How do you see that playing out?

A: I mean just every time my number is called I just try help my team win. Don’t try to go out there and be superman or try to be the hero just go out there and play the way that I have been playing these last ten games. And then at the same time we are going to use Fred too. I will be ready for it; it is not like I won’t be prepared. I will be ready to go come Sunday.
