Sanders’ comments: "Eric Berry came over and sat his helmet on the Gatorade stand. It's got the texture, the rain and the grass, so you can just tell by the way his helmet looks that he's been on the ground. And he just kind of walked away and stood in front of it, and it just kind of set itself to have some real depth and I kind of thought about what's going on, what's going through his mind. He's watching the scoreboard and talking to his teammates, so this was neat with the texture, the bumpiness of the Gatorade table and the raindrops.

"It rained pretty much that entire game and I wanted to make sure that the helmet was completely sharp, but everything else was out of focus, so I controlled the depth of field on the camera and made Eric kind of go out of focus, but he's still a prominent part of the frame."
