I thought that way last year before the season started. I feel the same way now,
I didn't know how to react to it, it was very difficult. The most difficult part is that I think I'm young. I haven't started all 16 games for six years, so I feel fresh.
I felt I was ready last week. It's just a matter of getting an opportunity to get out there. After that first hit you're ready to go. That's the way it always is. I'm anxious to get back out there and do what I love to do - and that's play ball.
I know I can play ball. It's just a matter of me getting to do it here or someone else.
I can't go on what happened last year. This is a new year. I have to go out there and prove I can be the guy. It's not personal. It's business.
I've basically been trying to get the plays down and my conditioning up at the same time. Just being ready. This is my seventh year now. I know the book, it's just the terminology I'm just trying to get down.
