Ball's Rookie Journal: Just Another Game

Posted Oct 18, 2013

In his latest entry, rookie running back Montee Ball checks in to discuss being mic'd up last week and preparing for the Colts.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Rookie running back Montee Ball is chronicling his rookie campaign all season long on DenverBroncos.com.

As you might have seen, I was mic'd up for last week's game. You know when you're mic'd up, we've got to watch what we say -- nah, I'm just kidding. It was fun. Really at times I forgot it was there because you're just in the game, in the moment. For me right now it's still just taking every opportunity I get, since I dropped that pass. I'm just trying to make the most of everything. Right now, just patiently wait.

It's always an evaluation period for me. I've just got to make sure to take every opportunity and try to make the most of it. That's most definitely what I'm doing. When my time comes, I'm going to make sure I run with it.

As everyone knows, we've got the Colts this week. Speaking about their offense, Andrew Luck is a great quarterback. He's doing some great things over there. And they've got Trent Richardson over there now. Their defense, they play hard. They're doing some good things over there. At practice all week, we have a lot of crowd noise outside to make sure we take care of that. Like I say every week, for us it's just go over there and do our thing.

It's just another game for all of us. The most important game on our schedule because it's the next one. All of the stuff that's going along with it, we most definitely block it out and just worry about executing, because we've still got to win the football game.
