I feel humbled and honored to receive the The Professional Football Writers of America (PFWA) 2015 Good Guy Award.
I’ll tell you what, it feels great knowing that the media respects me on such a high level to hand me this award. I enjoy talking to the media and having intelligent conversations with them about the game. Most of the time they do a great job, and I try to make myself as available to them as possible.
You know I can be an outspoken guy and sometimes my choice of words hits the headlines in a controversial manner. That’s my choice though, and the media gives me a great outlet to hammer those topics home.
Looking back at the past Good Guy Award recipients, it’s an honor to stand amongst those class of men. And of course, to follow up my man Russell and win this award really speaks volumes to what our team is all about.
Thanks again to the PFWA for selecting me for this award. I’m looking forward to building our relationship further this upcoming season.
