As a cancer survivor myself, I know that these first few days are really hard on you but as he and I talked yesterday, it’s just a matter of time. I asked Mr. Irsay if we would leave the light on in his office permanently till he comes back and we are going to do that.
This football team will survive. We are going to practice today. We’ll get through today. Today is about Chuck and we’ll get ready for the Packers on Sunday.
We won’t miss a beat because he’s laid that foundation that we will all take and run with right now and make him proud…
We have to move on today, get through today and get ready for the Packers because I know that’s the way Chuck wants it.
