“If you put the ball in position to catch it, they catch it. That was the same thing I had in St. Louis. They all do a tremendous job of getting open. The guys in St. Louis did it more with quickness, whereas the guys here in Arizona do it more with their size and positioning.” 

“I am glad that I was given the chance. I knew I could still play at a high level.” 

“I’ve always had confidence.” 

I just always felt I’d be playing football in the NFL ... or at least playing for a living.” 

“They're willing to let Matt sit and wait until they believe he's ready and I can't do the best I'm capable of doing. I'm completely comfortable with that.” 

“I expected to play well, I expected to lead my team, and I expected to win.” 

“My friends said, ‘You’re crazy, enjoy single life.’ But that’s not for me.” 

“On the football field I keep my emotions tied up inside. But when I’m with family, I let them out.” 

“Nobody knew who I was.”

“As I get older, I might need to keep the stubble off.  As the years come, it helps to look younger I guess.” 

“No matter what happens on the football field it doesn’t change the kind of person I am.”

“I’ve always known that if I got the right opportunity and the right system, I could be successful.” 

“I think there was always that question mark of why am I not in St. Louis anymore? I think everybody had those questions and probably had those perceptions of me.” 

“I’ve done it for a long time and I didn’t expect it to be any different here.” 

“I got my career started late so, even though I'm getting older, I don’t have as much wear and tear on my arm. I feel good. I really do.”

“I want to win. That's the most important thing.” 

“You realize in this business that a lot of people want to throw you out when you get old. But it’s kind of like a badge of courage to say: ‘I’m still playing. I’m still fighting. I’m still being able to accomplish things even at this age.’”
