Jun 24th, 2012
TJP-How about somebody you could torch ?
Somebody you saw coming up on the schedule and you knew that you and Kenny (OíBrien) could light him up ?
WW-I would feel that way with any game. Lester Hayes was in the Hall of Fame, you know, and I welcomed that(the competition). A lot of times people just feared my speed but, there wasnít anybody I didnít fear, itís just that I knew what we could do as a team, and on the gameplan, and I just hoped that we could run the plays that the defense dictated and how we could be successful. I just remember one year, my offensive coordinator and receivers coach took a suggestion by me, they put it in practice, we worked on it, and put it in the game, and the next thing I knew I had 110 yards in the first half against Houston. I was really surpassing my All Pro year in 78, and I was actually averaging 24.4, and the follwoing year I was averaging 25.7 I was having this great run until I got hurt in that particular game and was out for the season. Probably the biggest thing against me was my health.
TJP-I am curious to what you think about Rex and the current teamÖ
WW-I like Rex. I think right now though, you know, he does well with the media because heís , heíll give you a sound bite and he can talk and heís very entertaining and thatís good. As far as the celebrations like Santonio Holmes, I just donít go for that. Iím to the point now, enough talk, just play the game. They definitely have to get back on board, because they have lost that emphasis on the defensive part of the game. I think heís a great coach, and itís a team sport. Injuries are a big factor. You have to be on the same page as a whole. There canít be any in-fighting. People donít know how hard it is to have people stay healthy on every phase of the ball. You lose two, three guys, whether itís on offense or defense, it could kill you. So I do have confidence in RexÖ.I just hope that ..even with Tim Tebow, puts a fire under Sanchez, heís definitely got to get better. Heís got to move, or make some kind of progress, otherwise itís gonna be the same thing.
