AR: Again, you're going to have to ask him. I've never met him. I'm not sure where he's getting his information. But, hey, it's America. Freedom of speech.

DP: Of the tough criticism you've gotten, what is fair?

AR: Unless someone tells me about it, I don't hear a whole lot. I heard about the Shannon Sharpe stuff, but that kind of falls on deaf ears. There's not much that was really applicable to our team.

DP: An opposing coach had one of his players wear a blond wig in practice to simulate your teammate Clay Matthews. Is there a guy out there you pay special attention to because of his hair?

AR: Troy Polamalu's got that long flowing hair. It's pretty easy to figure out where he's at. When you think about guys with distinguishing features, [what distinguishes them is] not just because they catch your eye ... it's because they're great players.

DP: Is there one player you always identified first when you looked across the line?

AR: It used to be Jared Allen when he had the mullet, but then he cut it.

DP: Because it was a competitive disadvantage?

AR: Maybe so. His wife may have had something to do with it too.
