I watched you beat (Eagles running back) LeGarrette Blount rather easily in the locker room basketball game. Are you the best on the team?

“Is that a serious question? Is Michael Jordan the greatest of all time? The answer is yes. I am the best. No one has beaten me. A few guys have come close, but not close enough.”

I see you have a lot of Lokai bracelets. How many do you own?

“I have two buckets full of them, but I usually wear these same six (three on each wrist) for practices and games because it seems to work. The blue-and-white one is from ‘Shark Week.’ One is all white, and the green-and-gold one is from Oregon. Go, Ducks.”

Are you making any big adjustments as a punt returner for the game Sunday?

“I’m not going to wear my mouthpiece. I used to wear one that’s called a pacifier, but I took it out (after a punt hit teammate linebacker Bryan Braman and the Falcons recovered it). I usually yell ‘Poison’ when I want my teammates to get away from the ball, but no one can understand me when I’m wearing the mouthpiece.
