Q: What are some of the challenges that the Browns present?
A: They have some talented guys over there, starting with the running backs, Crowell and Johnson. Both of them are dynamic and great players. As far as their quarterback, you donít know what you are going to get, so you have to be prepared for one of the three or four quarterbacks, including number 11, so just come out and play football
Q: What do you think of Terrelle Pryorís transition to wide receiver?
A: He has been pretty good, man. He is a big guy. He is tall, he is fast, it looks like his transition is going good.
Q: How do you think you matchup with him?
A: Man, like I said, that is for you all to decide and then I will see you all on Tuesday.
Q: Where do you think Terrelle fits in with some of the other receivers you have seen?
A: He is up there. He is tall, like I said, he is fast, he is physical. He is the prototype, but we have to see what is going on.
Q: Is it surprising that he has been able to do this so quickly?
A: No, he is an athlete. When you have good athletes like that, they are able to do a lot of things and he was able to transfer to receiver.
Q: What kind of impact does it have on a corner when you have a safety over here who is picking off balls left and right?
A: Hey, man, it is a good impact. He gets to roam and I get to play how I want to play and we both get to make an impact.
Q: Do you guys sit back this week and say, ĎLetís not be the team who loses to these guysí?
A: No, we donít think about that. We just come out, focus on being better and just playing to the max, to be honest, and just playing for the man next to you.
Q: What are you guys thinking about right now as you have this five-game winning streak going?
A: Beat Cleveland. That is all we are thinking about.
Q: How are you focusing on just that?
A: We are putting in work, just coming out and just knowing what you have got ahead. You canít focus on the five-game winning streak or the team after Cleveland, just one game at a time.
Q: Do you feel that teams that are desperate for a win may be more dangerous?
A: No, they are just more dangerous with tricky plays, in my opinion, so that is what we need to be aware of. They have a bye week next week, so we need to be aware of the trick plays and the gimmicks and gadgets.
Q: Do you expect the Browns might try to do something like that?
A: Oh, yeah, they have a bye week next week, so I am assuming they will.
Q: What do you guys have to do as a defense better to start these games like you are finishing them?
A: Just start faster. Everybody needs to get on one page from the first play to the end of the game and like I said, just continue to play football.
Q: Have you been happy with your performance so far?
A: I have been alright. I havenít been happy. I have been alright. It can get better, but I have a lot more games to come.
Q: What do you feel like you can do better?
A: I just feel like some balls that I got my hand on could have been my ball, they could have been interceptions. I just feel like I need to come up with those.
Q: Does that motivate you to be even better?
A: I already have motivation, man.
Q: What is your motivation?
A: My kids. That is it.
Q: The defense is playing with a lot of excitement. How do you think that is helping the offense in trying to get to that same level?
A: I think they feed off of us. They see us playing good defense and they are just picking up where they are slacking at. It isnít going to happen too long, it isnít going to last too long, but around football you have to play great defense to give the offense a chance to get up with the defense.
Q: Is there any receiver you can compare Terrelle to?
A: Receiver? I donít really like to compare guys. I just see Terrelle as being Terrelle.
Q: Is this a big challenge for you going up against him?
Q: Why donít you see him as a challenge?
A: Because he is another receiver. He is just big.
Q: Do you feel like you matchup well with him?
A: I am going to do my job. That is all that matters.
