RB David Wilson on his goals for 2012.

Q: The first thing you said was five yards per carry?
A: Yeah.

Q: Is there any accolades like All-Rookie or anything like that?
A: Not yet.

Q: Any other goals?
A: There’s a list of them. Five yards a carry. At least ten touchdowns. At least six 100-yard games. No sacks allowed on my behalf. No fumbles. At least a play of 20 yards each game.

Q: When did you write it out?
A: Yesterday. I got the coach typing it up right now and put it in my locker because I don’t have a printer.

Q: You mentioned how nervous you were before the first preseason game. What is your anticipation for Wednesday night?
A: I’ve got to just go out there and play hard and walk off the field with no regrets in my first NFL win.

Q: You think the butterflies are a thing of the past because you played in a game?
A: No. Now I know what to expect, so it’s not like butterflies but it is more weight because it’s a real game. I think the nervousness is gone.

Q: How much will a real game be different than the preseason game?
A: From what I hear, I heard it’s going to be a lot faster because it means a lot more and I know since it means a lot more, I’m going to be more pumped up. I think it will balance out.

Q: How do you mentally prepare for it to be ready?
A: Just focus all week and then when game time comes, you’ll be confident and just ready to play.

Q: How important is it to make a list and be prepared to go into the season with some goals in mind?

A: I’ve always been big on goals and every time I make one of those goal sheets, I’ve achieved 75 percent of what was on there and there’s been a few times where I’ve achieved everything on the sheet. Just having something written down and knowing what you want to do, so you have a definition of success for yourself and you know what you’re working for instead of just going out there and playing.
