"From [Monroe's] perspective, his history, he's probably used to making non-football plans for January — family plans, vacation, whatever it is. That's depressing when you have to do that. To be at this juncture for him and for our team, having this right in front of us, it's an exciting time. It's at the end of the season and you're kind of worn down but that gives you a little extra boost to keep going."
