I have a big head, so I can appreciate a good hat.
One of my best friends got recruited to go to Miami, and another one went to South Florida. You're talking about two big schools in Florida, and I had to go all the way up to Buffalo. I was like, 'OK, I have to put in some more work.' That's just the way it has been ever since.
When you've got a chance, you've got to capitalize.
I'm always looking at film, studying myself, comparing and contrasting with film of the great linebackers to see what I need to work on.
Eddie Jackson - that's my dog.
When you do something, do it right the first time... When you're talking about hard-working, when you go out of your way to mop floors and strip them and do all those things, it's kind of like, 'Dang.'
You could talk about potential all day. Nobody really cares about it on the football field. You want to come out and win these games. That's the only thing that matters.
Everybody kind of recognizes you. It's a good feeling.
That's a good feeling, knowing that I can finally get everything situated and that I had the time to get things situated.
I didn't know Chicago was so aggressive. It's real aggressive out here. Everybody kind of recognizes you out here. But it's a good feeling.
I'm going to come in and be a hard worker, and I'm going to try to lead by example and be a great teammate, and everything on the field is going to take care of itself.
My father instilled those hard-working values.
Just understand that I'm trying to get to the quarterback by any means necessary. And if I have to throw somebody out of the way to do it, it is what it is.
I want to be the best at what I do, and that's just me. That's what comes with Mack.
Whenever we were on the road when I was younger, I remember my father pointing out the trucks that had 'Mack' on them.
Coach Staley definitely had me doing overtime. It has been fun, though, man.
Man, I pull up to Home Goods, and people are waiting on me in the parking lot.
You could kind of guess if you bring in Peanut Tillman to the defensive team meeting - yeah, it's all about turnovers and getting after the ball.
It's always in your mind, because that's the goal - you want to definitely be in the playoffs. But at the same time, it's not easy to do. It's no easy task, and the challenge is to go out and try to clinch that, by any means.
The NCAA game, the first one that I was on, I was rated a 46 with 37 speed. It was a slap in the face. I knew deep down in my heart I was better than a 46.
