Image Quotes about Embrace




Mark Bruener  - You have to embrace and welcome the role that you're given. A lot of people on the outside always said to me, 'You need to have statistics to say you're a great player.' I didn't buy into that. The only statistics I looked at were wins and losses. Whether I was catching two passes in a game or clearing the way for Jerome, I just wanted to win. There was a year when I had 18 receptions and six went for touchdowns (in '97). I made plays when I had to. I just don't think you can make a fair judgment on a tight end based solely on numbers. I'm sure Heath feels the same way about this, because from what I've heard, he's an unselfish kid who wants to be a winner.
