On whether offseason changes were to his satisfaction: It wasn't to my liking. It's hard to put pressure on these young guys coming in. You wouldn't throw them into the fire like that. I think it's good that we have the (other) guys back healthy and we all can get out there, and those young guys can kind of contribute where they can. But for the veterans, it's an important season for us.
Disappointed you didn't get Randy Moss or Chad Johnson or one of the other top wideouts?: It's not about me being disappointed or excited. The guys that we have made plays for us last year. People forget that Kevin Curtis had 1,000 receiving yards. It's only the second time that's happened since I've been here.We showed signs in our passing game. We just need to be consistent. I said (I wanted) playmakers. I didn't say receivers. I said guys who could come in and make plays for us. We brought in Asante (Samuel), who led league in interceptions two years ago.
Concerned that the sheppard situation will be a distraction?: I hope it isn't. I understand Lito's situation. It's a tough situation. When they bring somebody in at your position, obviously you have questions. As a teammate and a friend, I hope things work out well for him.
Your physical condition?: There were big strides last year. I got more comfortable as the season went on. And I was able to do a lot of different things that I was used to doing.
Addition of a home run threat punt returner: I think it will be big for us to get some good field position and start the offense in the right position where he can just drive the field.
Can you win the Super Bowl with this team?: I think we can win it every year. I'm going to give all that I have. It all starts with me, and hopefully it will trickle down to everyone else. If we put it all together and be consistent, we can win a Super Bowl with this team.
On Reggie Brown: I think Reggie can be a great player. I expect him to have a great year this year. Later in the year, he stepped up and made some big plays for us.
