    Really? EVERY player in the league is asked the same kinds of things and many make a point of saying they want to put the team's success before their own.

    I challenge you to find me any quote from CJ which says his goal is to make the team better.

    Who cares who prompts the statement? Every celebrity gets asked silly questions. Stupid ones answer them stupidly. Of course, interviewers are trying to get a headline statement from you. People like John Mayer and CJ take the bait, trying to make a spectacle of themselves.

    You are responsible for the words that come out of your mouth by your own free will. Especially so when on the air or in print.

    CJ is jealous because Bolt makes more money than he does. CJ, if you're so freaking fast and good, why aren't you in the olympics for track? They'res obviously more money in it than in the NFL if you're as great as you think you are.

    He should put his money where his mouth is, and I don't mean more gold teeth.

    Just going from memory, but I do believe CJ has in fact said something about the teams success over his own. Not sure if it was regarding his weight or the offense shifting to a pass first offense, but it was recent. I'll look for it later.

    He literally just said that in the past week. He said his main goal is to win a super bowl and reach the playoffs again and that was more important than him running 2000 yards again. I know somebody will post the direct quote because I read it this week.

    If he said it, I'm glad.

    CJ likes his stats. We know that. To a point he is a selfish player. He wants to win more than anything though. C'mon guys. The man had a bad year and was certainly partly to blame for it. Let's not get carried away though. Like he doesn't care about winning? Please!

    I can't find the quote so maybe I'm wrong but I saw this in an older article from June.

    "When I ran for 2,000 yards my goal was to be the best player in the league and I still want to be that. In order for my team to make it to the playoffs, make it to the Super Bowl, I’m going to have to be the best.”

    No one said he didn't care about winning. My point is that he is all about self-promotion and cares about his own numbers over the team's. Apparently, I'm not the only one with that perception.
