What up Yardbarker, its your boy D Ward here. We have a night game, so I woke up early had some breakfast and now just writing this blog on my hotel bed in Dallas.
Tough loss last week at home versus the Eagles, I cant say too much other than the fact that it was a wake up call for our team. We were blessed to clinch the division with the Steelers 20-13 win against the Cowboys who we face this week in the big NBC Sunday Night Football showdown from Irving, Texas.
My partner in crime with this running attack, 27 Brandon Jacobs left our last game early with an aggravated knee. He is sitting this game out so the load is now on me and my other partner in crime Ahmad Bradshaw. Reuben Droughns and Danny Ware might see some action, they are both hard workers and are both ready for the challenge. Dallas has one of the fastest defenses I have faced this year, but our offense has played together for a long time, we are in sync and we are focused on the task at hand, by guaranteeing ourselves a first-round postseason bye and stay in the lead in the race for home field advantage throughout the playoffs.
We are excited at the opportunity to show America how good we really were, and that the team everyone saw highlights of loosing to the Eagles has come and gone for good! I am excited to show how versatile our team is without certain players, I'm just real excited to go out and play football! Dallas is going to try and shut down our running game and force Eli and our receivers to make big plays. We will not loose focus on Giants style football and we will be patient all game playing with fire in our hearts.
I wanted to thank all of you who have been commenting, I know I need to get back to yall and I will plan on answering all the questions that are posted from today to Tuesday. I also want you all to go to my website (www.dward34.com) and check out all the new pictures posted from last week. Myself, Steve Smith, Domenik Hixon , and Reuben Droughns had an autograph session at a fashion store called Michael K in SOHO for L-R-G clothing, EA Sports and AMP Energy. Then on Tuesday, we had the L-R-G 10th year anniversary photo shoot, had the pleasure of meeting some of the finest names in Hip-Hop, DJ Jazzy Jeff (Will Smiths old DJ and co-star in "Fresh Prince of Bel Air"), Swizz Beatz, Wale, Pete Rock, Smith & Wesson and many more. Shout out to my boy Saia of L-R-G for getting with my agent Audie Attar to make that happen! Lets go Big Blue!!! GAME TIME BABY!!!
