“Am I more competitive if I would have tried to fight him after the game?” Choice said via Tim McMahon of ESPNDallas.com. “What would you say then? If we would have won the game? Sixty minutes is from the beginning to the end. That’s all you play in a football game. When a game’s over, it’s over.”
Choice is known as a hard worker and a competitor. His coach Jason Garrett defended him for those reasons before Choice had the chance to stick up for himself.
“There’s no fan, there’s no coach, there’s no person in media who cares more about a game, winning or losing, that I’m playing in,” Choice said. “I play — you see what I’m saying? — and I give everything I’ve got for 60 minutes. That’s it. If you’ve got something to say, cool. Be in the NFL. Play. That’s cool. You’ve got your opinion, and I’ve got mine.”
My opinion is that we’ve probably spent too much time on this issue.
