The chase begins for us in Miami

January 02, 2009 |

I hope all of you had a great New Year’s celebration.  Mine was really low key.  I just sat around with a few of the guys and watched a lot of football.  We had practice on Thursday, so the main requirement on Wednesday was to get plenty of rest.

We’re looking forward to going down to Miami this weekend.  Looking at film this week, there’s no doubt they’re better right now than they were in Week Seven.  But so are we.  A lot of people have asked me if it’s important that we beat Miami earlier this season.  I don’t know how important it is right now that we won that game, other than to say we’re in the playoffs because we won 11 games and that win in Miami was one of them.

Having played in four playoff games last year at Delaware, I’m familiar with the “one and done” routine.  Obviously, the NFL is much different than college football, but the playoff system I played in isn’t any different.

We’re going down there to win a game, stay alive and keep chasing our goal of winning the Super Bowl.  I’ll be talking to Drew at 8:30am on Tuesday.  I hope you all have a fun weekend.
