I’m at the halfway point of my rookie year, and it seems like it’s flown by. But at the same time, when you look back on it, it seems like it’s been such a long process -- if that makes any sense. It’s such an incredible experience, just getting out there and playing in the NFL and hopefully building on these wins going into the bye. Let’s get a couple more, and then see what happens down the stretch here at the end.
It’s true when rookies say that you start to feel how long the NFL season is compared to college, especially coming from the FCS [Football Championship Subdivision] level. We played 11 games in college. In the pros, two weeks ago was 11 games for us. So it’s definitely a longer season both physically and mentally, but the bye weekend came right in the middle for us. It’s like we have a second season coming up with eight more games. So it’s going to be fun.
It was big to get those two wins against Minnesota and Philadelphia going into the bye. You get a little momentum going, and then hopefully build on it from there. We’ve worked hard, and we’ve shown we’ve improved as a team a great deal over the last two weeks. We’ll keep improving, and hopefully those wins keep coming.
