"I think sometimes, that's the biggest set-up ever. Look at all the great ones, man. All the great ones, man, every time you say they're hurt, they come out and have their best games. So, forget all that! Who's hurt and who's not. If you have your uniform on, we understand that you're playing full throttle. You're playing just like who you are."

"We don't even get caught up into that (voice getting high and shrill), ‘Oh Tom has this! Let's try and do this, let's try and do that,'" Lewis said. "As soon as you try to do that, it leaves people man-on-man, then he hurts you."

"Then he's (celebrated) because he's done it with three broke ribs and a finger," Lewis asked, his voice getting all high again. "Nah, forget all that. Bottom line, is if he suits up, he's ready to play. Let's play."
