I normally run the 40-yard dash in 4.9, but when a 280-pound guy is chasing me, I run it in 4.6.
There are a lot of people who might not get another chance to win a Super Bowl, not just me.
Being thrown into the fire and getting the thing turned around in a hurry made it more difficult. Things have been done the hard way. I think you learn better when things are done the hard way.
A lot of times the expectations of you are so high that no matter what you do you are never going to be able to live up to those expectations. So you better go out and do the best you can and enjoy it.
In the long run, the cream always rises and the crap always sinks.
I've experienced the highest of highs and lowest of lows. I think to really appreciate anything you have to be at both ends of the spectrum.
If you ask what's been my secret of success, most might say it's my God-given athletic ability to throw a football. While talent is important, it's not necessarily the most important thing. Thousands of talented people fail every day. My strength has been my will to win-that competitive fire inside.
When things go bad, it's easy to point fingers. People who attempt to switch the blame are afraid to fail. We've all been afraid to fail before a game, but it shouldn't stop us from continuing, and from doing what we have to do to get the job done.
It's all about putting the best team together - not just in the front office but the players on the field.
I can't compare quarterbacks as apples and oranges in my mind because everybody's in a different system.
