Isaac Bruce (seven catches, 61 yards, 1 TD in a 17-16 win): I knew after probably two or three grabs in that game that (my 1,000th catch) was going to happen. I did know most of the year that I would have an opportunity to catch my 1,000th pass. It just so happened -- and it was a pleasant surprise -- that it happened in St. Louis. I felt really good (about the outcome), but there's one thing I wish wouldn't have happened in that game. When I caught No. 1,000, I think I ran one of the best routes I had ever run versus one of my former teammates -- or just in general -- throughout my entire career. It was what we call a "Spin 4," and I kind of baited him to take my inside move, then I just planted my foot like I had done for years. I went back outside, and I was pretty wide open. He was probably 2 yards away from me. I could've caught the ball standing up, but he ended up tackling me really for no reason, and I wanted to stay on my feet to really salute the crowd or do whatever I was going to do in that moment. To get tackled on my 1,000th catch was something I wish wouldn't have happened.
