More here:Jermon Bushrod knew the questions would be coming Tuesday.
In fact, the New Orleans Saints left tackle said he'd been anticipating them ever since he first learned that the Dallas Cowboys would be on the 2010 schedule.
He knew he'd have to rehash his most forgettable night as a pro - when he allowed two sacks and several more quarterback hurries against the Cowboys' perennial Pro Bowl pass rusher, DeMarcus Ware, in a 24-17 loss in the Superdome last December.
But Bushrod faced them head on - just like he plans on attacking Ware during Thursday afternoon's rematch in Cowboys Stadium.
"It's all good, it's all good. It comes with the territory," Bushrod said of the miniature media swarm that developed around him Tuesday. "But it is what it is. And I'm not going to dwell on it.
"You know, I can't go on the field and think about everything that happened last year. And I'm really not. I'm just going to worry about my play, worry about my technique and trying to keep whoever's lined up across from me off the quarterback."
