“I don’t worry about my job. I think I do a terrific job, and if you don’t, then you should write it, because I worked my butt off to get this team here,” “When I first got here, no one picked us to be anywhere, and again this year the same thing. So if that’s how anyone feels, write it and I’m gonna feel secure about it.”
