Elvis Is Not Amused

"They can be sarcastic all they want, but they know what it is," he said. "At the end of the day it's for real. Last year we did some things on defense and made some strides. Offensively we could have done better. But the guys in this locker room and the coaching staff that we have, we're second to nobody. We feel that way. "We don't want friends this year. We've got a lot of guys who've done things on this team that are hungry. Peyton is coming off the injury and has so much to prove. Champ Bailey wants a ring. Last year I played hurt and feel like I haven't displayed my primetime yet. Von Miller got hurt toward the end and now he's ready to show he can come out and be an all-around dominant defensive player. Chris Kuper coming off injury. It's for real. "We've been working, busting our ass all offseason," he continued. "We're not out here talking just because we've got Peyton. That's a great help for us. But we went to the playoffs last year and won our first game. We were nowhere near where we are now. At the same time we're putting that work in. It can be all jokes and sarcasm now, but when that ball's snapped it's for real. When it comes game time, that's when the fun will kick in. Right now we're just out here grinding. We know nobody is going to lay down and give it to us. We don't expect that. We want you to come at us hard. We're ready."
