As you get older, you look at things differently.
 

Because after my first year I had a lot of success, took everybody by storm, came back the next year thought it was easy and didn't have near the season I had the previous year. It was kind of a wake-up call. And so, life goes on.
 

But when you lose a family member or something tragic happens, that stays with you forever. You never get over it. Knowing that you have to deal with that for the rest of your life... Football is important, but not as important as you once thought it was.
 

God, he deals you blows that at sometimes you think you can't handle and in the last year there have been things that we thought we couldn't handle but we've dealt with it up until this point.
 

I can't believe I survived, not only my life, but I am still playing football 'cause half of those eight or nine years I don't even remember.

I'm not perfect.
 

I'm pretty boring really.
 

I'm thankful for all the things that this job has given me and my family. But probably the thing that I am most proud of throughout my career is that, not only myself, but my family and the people around me have just been regular people, which we are.
 

I, most talented players don't always succeed. Some don't even make the team. It's more what's inside.
 

If I can change than anyone can change. I promise you that.
 

In this case, I realize that, unlike when I was 22 years old, I realize now that football will not go on forever, it is a small part of your life.
 

Initially, I know that I handled it worse than she did and I think partly because I've always been... every bit of adversity I've faced up until the last year and a half is adversity I brought upon myself - or the opposing teams have given me.
 

It's a difficult job to do, but that is why we do it. Only so many people can do it. But it, it enables you to... for a brief period of time to kind of get away. You have to go back and deal with, but it's a good escape.
