Many people only see the end results. To wear nice suits and live in nice homes comes with a price. Many see us on Sunday, and figure that our lives as NFL players are easy. Well, I have news for them. The price we pay is great, but so is the reward. We have been working hard since, March 16, perfecting our craft. To look into the eyes of young rookies who come into the league not knowing what to expect, gives them a reality check that leads their agents to be psychologists or late night preachers. We practice almost everyday of the week, meet, and lift weights all for those three hours on Sunday to dominate. Everyone who crosses those white lines on Sunday, can not look into the stands for Superman. For three hours on Sunday, I am Superman, I, wholeheartedly believe, for that short period of time, no one can stop me, or my team. It's a mindset that you have to have. Do we get hurt on Sunday? Yes. But the sideline is my booth, where for a short period of time I can think about the next call, or how I can attack my opponent better. Because, at the end of the day you don't want to hear about my sore ankle, or my headache. At 4 p.m. on Sunday when I talk with my family and friends, who couldn't watch the game, they only want to hear one thing, or ask me the most important question. Did We Win? And. How did I Play? These expectations are High. But so are our goals. To whom much is given, much is required. My football career has cost me 2 ACL's, a dislocated elbow, and a host of other things. But, it has given me the faith to be a better Christian, Husband, Father, Brother,and Player. And if I had not gone through those injuries, I wouldn't be the player I am today. Everybody has to pay some kind of price on their road to "Greatness". Where has your road taken you? And ask yourself, are you stronger now, than you were?
