"What I really took away from the preseason is the tempo of the game. The changing, the checking, the audibles, and the speed of the game. It helped me a lot. It got me accustomed to the game and the speed. The preseason showed me what I’m capable of. By the second or third game, it really lets you know what the game is like.
"I practiced the whole week to prepare for game four, and it turned out to be a good game I had, so what I did in practice turned out to be what I did on the field. I just need to keep that up.
"To be named a starter … It’s good, I love it. First time working in the league, starting in the NFL, not many people get to do that, and I’m grateful for doing it, and I’m going to continue to work hard.
"I’m looking forward to facing Cordarrelle. He is a great player, just like I am. I am ready to compete with him, and I know he is ready to compete with me, so we are ready to have a little fun on Sunday.
"He has a big frame of him; a little taller than Percy Harvin, but he moves just like him, fast and explosive. You just have to be prepared; I know he is going to get the ball sooner or later, some way or some how, so I’m just ready to compete.
"Adrian Peterson, I have been seeing him all my life, since he has been in the league. He is going to be a tough one, I mean we are just going to have to be prepared; make sure we fill it up right, the gaps, and make sure we don’t miss any assignments.
"For all the fans on … I feel like everyone needs to be at the stadium at 10 o’clock if they want their seat on Sunday."
