Maurice Jones-Drew ON: Winning

Talk about your status as an NFL running back now…
Maurice-Jones Drew: “My main thing now is just to do whatever it takes to win. The yards are cool and everything, but at the end of the day, I want to win a championship. That’s the attitude going around. Individual things are going to happen when your team is successful. You’re going to get all the accolades, everything you want. But you have to keep that team-first mentality. Winning has to be the goal.”

How has your attitude on winning changed the last couple years?
MJD: “My attitude towards winning has changed a little bit. I dunno, I’m just a sore loser, man. I hate losing. That’s what rubs people the wrong way. To me, the only thing that should matter is winning. You get into the NFL, you get money that comes in the way, family, guys have different attitudes. We clash a little bit. At the end of the day, I want to win. I could care less about anything else. The last year I won was really at UCLA.”

    unfortunately, the last time he won is the last time we won…

    I love MLD’s attitude. He just gets it. One of my favorite Bruins of all-time.

    I love MOJO

    Gutty, little Bruin. Quintessential.

  • Coach Thom

    One of the most intelligent, articulate, competitive, generous, and toughest dudes playing the game. He always ramps up UCLA and his experiences as a Bruin. What a role model and ambassador for the Blue and Gold. I love the guy.


    I love Maurice, great attitude – I hope when his career is over in the NFL he joins the coaching staff at UCLA, he would be one great recruiter.
