Green Bay Packers running back Ty Montgomery co-hosted Monday's Clubhouse Live, USA TODAY NETWORK-Wisconsin’s live weekly football show. Packers cornerback Davon House was Montgomery’s guest.

Among the topics they touched on were surviving a physical showdown against the Seattle Seahawks, Aaron Rodgers and the Packers' defense. The show can be seen live at The Clubhouse Sports Pub & Grill in downtown Appleton or at clubhouselive.com.

Here are select and edited answers from the interview:

Q: You rushed for 54 yards in Sunday's win over the Seahawks and added four receptions for 39 yards. Your 93 total yards were a team-high. Assess your performance in the context that it was your first season-opening start as an NFL running back.

Montgomery: I think I've got more. I think it was knocking some rust off. I definitely think I have more. I expect more from myself. I've got to be careful about putting my own expectations and goals out there, but there's more.

Q: Your quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, said this about you after Sunday's game: "The thing I love about Ty is he just cares about it so much, like he really wants to be great. And he's always talking through things that happen on the field, on the sideline. ... I love playing with Ty." How does that make you feel when your quarterback says that about you? And what do those conversations entail?
