People who know there is a god and people who know there isn't live in exactly the same world. Same number of hours in the day, same weather, same football results. They both love their children and die of the same diseases.
The Negro was a political football between his former slave master and Northern political adventurers. The economic basis of this contest was the power to tax, to float bonds, to award franchise: in short, to gain control over the financial resources of the newly organized States.
I'm probably more obsessed with football that I am with music.
I grew up playing hockey and some football, and I always think about the first time you walk into the locker room on a new team. The cliques are looking at you funny, and you make one friend, but then they're trying to stab you in the back.
All I can do is do my part and keep trying to open up eyes with what I did on the football field, what I did in my career. Just go out there and try to compete and shock a couple more people.
I'm just going to go play football - fly around and make some plays. That's all that matters.
When I'm retired someday, when I'm done playing football, that's when I'll be relaxing and look back at some things.
I'm just a football player.
I love football, but being away from it is tough.
It's the same thing I have been doing since I was 5, playing the game of football. Going out there when my number is called and trying to make plays.
