Hey Yard Barker this is Derrick Ward (a.k.a. Wind). I am writing this blog to give my fans a little insight into my day-to-day life. They call me Wind because of my ability to do everything: pass protect, be shifty, catch the ball, and run hard between the tackles. However, you may not know that the main reason I am called, "Wind" is because of my laid back, easygoing California personality. When I am not at football I just try to get a lot of sleep. Last night I watched Street Kings and I loved the plot of a corrupt California cop. I am all about drama, action and suspense movies and my favorite movie right now would have to be the new Batman. Sometimes after Monday's practice I will head down to Atlantic City with a couple of friends just to get away for the night. I enjoy going out and trying new restaurants as often as possible. For those of you who were wondering I am not a gamer, in fact I am an old soul who enjoys reading the newspaper every morning while drinking a cup of coffee. I wanted to let my fans know about my new website www.DWard34.com and the T-shirt design that I came up with. I think the shirt is unique in the fact that it accentuates a picture of me after scoring a touchdown and the overall design is a true depiction of my personality. When I was a boy I never thought I would be able to have my own image on shirt, it's humbling and I am grateful for the opportunity that I have been given. This week we are heading into Arizona with a 9-1 record, which is a true testament to our overall team cohesiveness. Offensively our team goals are to rush and pass for 200+ yards each. That is going to be a battle this week because the Cardinals are only giving up 87 yards a game on the ground. My role will be the same this week as it has previously been. Brandon Jacobs had a full work out today and will be ready for Sunday's game. Until next time!
