"One of the things I've always felt is no one knows himself better than a good professional player," Pees said. "I think experienced pros know when I can't go and when I might be hurting the team. It killed Ray to come out of that game the other night. Killed him. I could see it in his eyes when he was walking off the field. I've been with it with Junior Seau, I've been with it with other players. But also, he's been the ultimate pro and knows, 'I can't get the job done the way I am right now, and I need to come off.' I don't think anybody knows their bodies better than those guys and the trainers. So to me, it's kind of whatever they say, then we've got to make a decision."
