(On the Super Bowl) "We are going to do our best and give it all we've got to win the game. We just have to take it one play at a time. No one has to be Superman. We just have to enjoy the moment, and do what we have been doing."

(On what Drew Brees expects) "Well, Drew pretty much demands the best out of you. When he gives you that look in the huddle, he's like, Ok, I'm coming to you, now go make a play, and make me right. That's what you do. You try to make him right."

(On his career journey) "For me, it has been a humbling experience. You think you come here in your first round draft pick, thinking that you're going to play. All of the sudden guys say, 'Hold on, I tore my meniscus again.' The second year, It was not how I wanted it to be, I was not playing how I wanted to play. For my third year, I told myself I have to do something different, 'What did I do my previous years to get where you were?' I had to go back to praying, and I had to go back to thinking I have a great personal trainer."

(On the experience in New Orleans) "It's just how the fans approach you now. At first everybody said, "It's all right, you are going to play.' That's how the fans were, and the fans kept pushing for me to be the best. A few weeks ago, a fan walked up to me and just started crying, and said, "Thank you for what you did for our city.' It makes you know that you are not bigger or better than anyone else, but you are doing something that's good for our city."

(On believing in destiny) "Yes, we believe in destiny and faith. We always tell each other to have faith in each other. The sky is the limit."

(On working with wide receiver coach Curtis Johnson) "(He is) one of the best coaches in the world. He is just like a parent. Sometimes they get on your nerves, but he demands that we be great. If you don't think highly of yourself, then you will feel he's a bad coach. He is a great coach for us, because he pushes us to the limit, and we try to push ourselves."
