"I kind of go over in my mind what it's going to feel like, but I don't even know," Burress told the Star-Ledger on Tuesday. "When I get out there, if whatever happens, if I shed a few tears or whatever that may be, the world will see it. But I'm excited. I don't want to start pressing, just let it come to me. I have a long season ahead of me, just let the plays come."
"Just focus on the game, seeing the whole game as I'm playing," he said. "When I first got here, the first few practices, the first couple preseason games, I was so focused on myself and putting myself in the right position, where I needed to be. Now, it's time for me to really start to understand the concept of the whole team offense."
Burress, who caught a touchdown pass in his preseason debut for the Jets, said he is completely healthy after an ankle injury early in camp.
"You can't ask for a better stage," Burress said. "Especially, with everything going on with the 10-year anniversary of 9/11 and playing America's Team, the Cowboys. It's the first Sunday night game of the year. ... you just can't set a better stage for the things that we want to accomplish as a team. We're just embracing it. I think we're going to go out and handle our business. It's a good time."
