After playing in just three games as a rookie last season, Bears CB D.J. Moore earned the starting nickel back job this year and didn't waste much time making a big impact, intercepting two Tony Romo passes in the Bears' Week Two win over the Cowboys.

PFW spoke with Moore earlier this week at Halas Hall and asked him to grade his performance in the first quarter of the season. We also found out which of his teammates he admires the most.

PFW: What grade would give yourself for the first quarter of the season?

Moore: Probably about a C-plus. You can always improve or whatever. If you're giving yourself a B or an A, you're getting too high on yourself. I'm doing what I'm supposed to do. You want to be way above average. Your pockets get real thick when that happens.

PFW: Which of your teammates do you admire the most?

Moore: Nick Roach. Last year he was starting and the year before that (he started nine games). He really doesn't say too much, but he does his job. He was starting before he (injured his hamstring this year). He just comes out and does what he needs to do. I'd have been (ticked) off (to lose a starting job).

PFW: What kind of music do you listen to before a game?

Moore: Probably a little gospel. I don't take my music (out on the field during pregame). But if I did, maybe (it would be) rap. Something to get you a little amped up. I like this song by Marvin Sapp. It's called "The Best In Me."
