Donte Stallworth Locker Room Interview - 1/8/2008

New England Patriots wide receiver Donte' Stallworth addresses the media during his locker room interview at Gillette Stadium on January 8, 2008.

(On the physical nature of Jacksonville's play)

Stallworth: They've shown that all year. They've shown that on the film that we've watched. They're a really good team. They've got a lot of experienced guys mixed with some youth out there. Their secondary -- Speaking from my point of view, their secondary is really good, their veterans, they've got a rookie [Reggie Nelson] back there who's playing really well. It's going to be a big challenge for us. We're going to have to try to get open. We know they're going to try to challenge us. Those guys are ballhawks back there so it's going to be a big challenge for us.

(On the difference between the regular season and the playoffs)

Stallworth: The difference between the regular season and the playoffs is that you can lose a game in the regular season be all right. You lose in the playoffs - that's it. I think everybody understands that. Everybody knows that. You make mistakes and that's it for you. You're home for the rest of the time.

(On how to deal with the pressures of the playoffs)

Stallworth: The pressure is what you put on yourself. I don't feel like there's any pressure on us. We're just trying to go out and make plays and right now we're just trying to take it one day at a time. We've got to get the game plan down, see what the coaches have in store for us as far as certain calls and things like that. I think the guys will be taking that in during the next couple of days and we'll go out and see. As far as pressure, pressure is what you make of it so I've never felt any pressure before, ever.
