Assessing his performance in week one.

"I think I did good.  I just took everything I learned over the preseason and tried to add it in.  I just went back and watched film of the Vikings game, you know every game you can learn something new and I'm just going to keep putting it together and get ready for the Pats game."

Did the Vikings do a lot to take stuff away down the field?

"I think they were trying to take that deep threat away.  Me and Mike are good enough athletes to, you know, if we get the ball five yards within the line of scrimmage we can turn it into a 10 yard gain or 15 yard gain.  So what we have is a good deal." 

How huge of a difference is it now with you going into your second season?

"The game has slowed down a lot.  I'm a lot more comfortable and confident back there in the backfield.  Last year everything was just a whirlwind of new formations and new plays and coming in and being the first round pick, just a lot on your shoulders.  This year, a lot of this has eased off.  It's time to go play ball, and your ability take and you just go out there and play and have fun."
