Bye Week

Its week 6 in the NFL and the Bengals have a bye-week, it couldn’t have come a better time! I needed to refocus, refresh and refuel for the second half of the season. I decided to visit my old stomping ground in Athens, Georgia; it’s homecoming week at UGA. It was good to see my old friend and some new friends whom I never met, but they knew who I was. It was all good though. I got to do something I never got to do while in College, watch practice from the sidelines. It all seems so surreal to me, as I watched and tried to remember what it was like to be out there those guys. It was only a year ago I was in their shoes. After spending some time with my former Coaches and Teammates it was time to hit Downtown Athens. After a night of friends, food and good clean fun I was ready to attend another game between the hedges. As I watched from the sideline it brought back a lot of memories of some of the epic battles I was a part of as a Bulldog. Seeing my old teammates, coaches and friends really helped motivate me to step up my game. I’m back in Cincinnati and I am ready for some Football.
