Jarvis Jones Quotes:
With the defense we have focusing on me is going to be the wrong thing to do. There are so many players we have who are capable of making the same plays I can.
We want to big games, and have fun doing it. We all came back for a reason. Last year we had a pretty good season. i think we are more mature now.
Last year was my first year playing, and I think we did pretty well. I think we understand our system more. I think we can be better than just top five. I think we can become the best defense in the nation this year.
I watch a lot of my bad plays on film, and I am trying to elevate that. I watch DeMarcus Ware, Dwight Freene and a few others to see what they do. I am just trying to make that jump.
I think we brought a lot of energy that first half. I really think our defense is maturing, and we can be the best defense in the nation.
Aaron is smart. He knows how to make plays. You can tell he's passionate about being our quarterback. I think Aaron knows a whole lot.
Our secondary is pretty deep. A lot of mature guys back there. Shawn Williams didn't get a lot of publicity, but I think he's one of the better safety in the country.
I think now we have to approach the season as humbly as possible. We have to practice and make every snap count.
We don't want to be in the 0-2 boat this year. Right now we are so focused. We have 100% participation right now. We are teaching them so that if they need to play they will know what to do.
