Not A One-Man Solution

Anthony "Booger" McFarland wanted one thing made clear: He's not a one-man solution.

He doesn't think people should consider him one. And he sure doesn't see himself that way.

"I'm not proclaimed as a savior - I'm not a difference-maker," McFarland said Wednesday, a day after the Colts acquired him in a trade with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for a second-round selection in the 2007 NFL Draft.

"What I am is a guy who's going to work as hard as I can and try to do whatever they ask me to do. That's what I am."

McFarland, a defensive tackle, was a first-round draft selection (15th overall) by the Buccaneers in 1999. He played with Tampa Bay for seven seasons, starting for the last six. His first three seasons in the NFL, and his first two as a starter, he spent playing for Colts Head Coach Tony Dungy, then the head coach in Tampa Bay.

McFarland arrived in Indianapolis Wednesday, watched practiced Wednesday afternoon and likely will practice Thursday, Dungy said.

"We're happy about it," Dungy said Wednesday as the AFC South-leading Colts (5-0) prepared to play the Washington Redskins (2-4) at the RCA Dome Sunday at 4:15.
