Essentially, it is the director who is the creative head of a film. The final authority on all decisions lies with the director. That is how it should be. And then other team members can give their creative inputs.
I grew up playing hockey and some football, and I always think about the first time you walk into the locker room on a new team. The cliques are looking at you funny, and you make one friend, but then they're trying to stab you in the back.
I'm going to try and do my job and try to make as many plays as I can and help my team win.
I'm just going out there and doing my job, so whatever it is - if it's a hard slide protection, if it's a double team, or even a triple team or a chip - whatever it is, I'm just finding ways to win, so that's about it.
I'm just playing my game and trying to help my team win. Whatever happens, happens.
It ain't just one guy, it's a team game, and I'll get myself better, I'll keep working on my technique and trying to find ways to free myself and keep making plays.
I've got a good team, got great agents that I know are going to handle the business side, and I trust those guys.
I don't care if it was 2 o'clock in the morning after a night game. I had to break down the film by myself before I watched it with the team. I wanted to see everything I did wrong and did right or I wouldn't be able to sleep.
It's what you work for and grind for. Just to get out there and play the game and try to help your team to win. And in doing that, you just help yourself.
My main focus is playing football and giving it all I got. I'm trying to go out there and make plays and help my team win.
