Did you at least keep the ball?
No, he said, after looking around his locker.
What about having something to prove? You're a little guy, Danny. You came from a small school, no one gave you a chance.
"It's not really for me to try to prove people wrong," he said. "My job is to be the best player that I can be. And that's what I'm going to continue to do, go out and work hard and do everything I can to become a better player each day to help this team win each game."
Tom Brady, who threw three touchdown passes, was impressed, as was everyone. Yeah, he joked about Woodhead's height -- saying it must be hard for the defense to see him "tucked in there behind the center" -- but knows a lot of work went into his performance.
"He did great," said Brady. "What an impressive performance for a guy who's been here for 10 minutes."
But that's what people expect here. Faulk is out for the season, and Woodhead is expected to step in and make it hurt less. Fred Taylor gets hurt in the third quarter and Green-Ellis comes in and overpowers the Bills.
"If you're in this locker room, you can help the team," said offensive guard Stephen Neal. "And they both helped the team a lot today.
"It's just a pleasure to watch people work hard all week and they get the opportunity and they come through and do a great job."
