LaDainian Tomlinson Interview Transcript 9/5/11
New York Jets running back LaDainian Tomlinson addressed the media on Monday. Here is the transcript courtesy of the Jets.
On if he feels any pressure building off of last year…
I don’t think it’s pressure that any of us feel, I would say it’s more confidence with the things that we’ve done in the offseason, building on a team that’s coming back from the AFC Championship Game.
On the team going to Ground Zero last week…
It was special, because I think for a guy like me who was on the West Coast at the time, I really didn’t get a chance to see it up close. When you go there, there’s a certain aura that you have when you stand there and you just imagine that day and just the chaos and everything that so many families and people went through. It just gave you that feeling that you’re special. You’re lucky to be standing on that spot but at the same time you’re special because you get a chance to do something that a lot of people don’t get to do. But it’s very humbling at the same time.
On the challenge the Cowboys presents…
It’s going to be a heck of a challenge. They have an explosive offense, led by Tony Romo, but defensively with Rob Ryan over there, it’s kind of like looking in the mirror, kind of like looking at our own defense, with a couple different wrinkles. So it’s going to be very challenging. We know the blitz packages and that type of stuff that Rob likes to bring, so it’s going to present a heck of a challenge for us.
