As most of you know, Ryan Kerrigan has not missed a defensive play this year. He said that it wasnt necessarily a goal of his to play every snap but the coaches seemed to indicate that it should be.The coaches told me right away there is none of this, he said, tapping his head in the universal signal for a football player to communicate to the bench that he needs a rest. No coming out of the game.I want to be in there every snap, because then you have more opportunities to make plays.He said that his consecutive snaps streak is not necessarily a point of pride for him, but he is not going to come out of a game unless he thinks he cant get the job done.If I was tired and didnt feel like I could perform at the level Im capable of Id gladly let someone go in who was fresh and could perform at the optimum level, he said. But if I feel good, I want to be in there.
