5:54 am
>> they always go back to that bye week when they were 3-6. that is when rg iii became the captain of the team coming back off the bye week. they said forget about the record. forget about what anybody is reading into mike shanahan saying maybe the season is over. we'll go out one at a time. they have taken that mentality. >> i remember rg iii saying that. he said we'll come back and be focused and ready to go. >> he almost said it defiantly. a lot of people might remember tim tebow when he was down in florida. >> you didn't have to bring that in. >> i'm just saying he made the same type of statement and they won the national championship. rg iii was like we are going to win each and every week and they did. i don't think anybody believed it would actually happen. but it has. now, obviously, as good as alfred morris was, the defense to me really stepped forward and the biggest thing here was right after a three and out,
