You know the last two weeks, after we beat Atlanta and after we beat .... the last two weeks after we won, I found myself ine shower crying. dreaming of this moment.
You work so hard your whole life to get here.
Everything culminates ... i can't help but think back to a quote my grandfather gave me by Calvin Coolidge about persistence, I'm not going to say it, because it's a little long, and it will drag on ...
But .,. her gave me that quote when I was eighteen years old ... when I was not given a scholarship to play at any division one university,
My father and mother, my father and mother told me to stay after my dream, and I've officially accomplished the best thing in this sport with a group of guys that mean the world to me.
Becasue really persistance has summed up my whole career. Summed up my whole life. Just keep going, jsut keep moving forward, no matter what obstacles come in your way, just keep moving forward.
The resiliency of this team is incredible. We've all talked about it, but when you really sit back and think, a lot of you guys picked us to finish dead last in the NFC East. As they went along, nobody gave us any inclination that they thought we were the best team in the NFL. Especially after injuries started happening. This is understandable.
But the fact that we were able to overcome everything ... just keep moving forward, I can't help but be a little emotional.
