Oh my god, it's incredible. It's so f***ing exciting. We've got pieces, man. We just need a few more things. We need to spend a few of our draft picks getting better in the secondary. [Louis] Delmas is ill. Our defensive line is awesome. We get Mikel LeShoure and Jahvid Best back next year, too. We've got bona fide stars on our team. It feels good to finally root for a team that's headed in the right direction. F***, man, if you look at Stafford—this was his first full season. 5,000 yards! He did some incredible sh**, and I can't grasp how he got left off the Pro Bowl team for Eli Manning.
