The person is not a concern for me because I love it. While no one can ever recall the preseason details, they will be able to remember them next season. All is fine.

They want to get out and play. They could even hit you, so I tell them to be calm. Keep your head high and practice what you have been doing every day. You will always be a good quarterback, no matter what.
