Important To Win These Tough Games
Sunday's win over Minnesota wasn't a pretty win, but I'll take it. We know how important it is to win in the Division, to win on the road. It was a big game to pull out.
We have a big game on Sunday against the Patriots, and they're going to be prepared for us. They've lost two games in a row, so they'll be hungry.
Against Minnesota, we knew the running game would be tough to get going. That's a big, strong defensive line there. We didn't run for a lot of yards, but I think we did enough to make them respect our running game. It was enough to keep the defense honest. It opened things up in the passing game and Brett did a great job getting the ball down the field.
I was pleased with the way things worked out for me. I had a couple of big runs and picked up the blitz well a couple of times to give Brett time to get the ball to our receivers. Donald Driver made a big play on one of those throws to get the ball in the end zone. It was a team game.
It's not always running the ball as a back. You have to block, stick your nose in there. I don't mind that part of it at all. Whatever helps us win.
I've said in reports that my agents and I have had contract talks with the Packers. As soon as I know, I'll let you know if we can get something done. I would love to stay with the Packers. I love the fans and the organization. I would be happy to finish my career here. It's been great playing as a Packer, so we will see how things go. My job is to play football, not worry about contracts.
I let my agents handle thing. I don't want any of that to be a distraction, so it won't happen now.
Everybody believes in what we're doing with Coach McCarthy. We're in the hunt and everybody is out there having a ball. When you have success, you see things pick up. Everybody is working well together.
