When I was a kid, I wanted to be ... a 007 secret agent. I just thought it was cool.

What would you rather be doing right now? Anything to do with football.

Shhhhhh! Don't tell anyone that ... my favorite band is Green Day.

Other than your wedding day and the birth of your children, what was your proudest moment? My daughter's acceptance to medical school and my son giving his game football to his grandpa.

It really stinks when ... people try to convince me that they used to run a 4.4 40-yard dash or could bench 4 plates.

What word in the dictionary would your face be next to? Humble.

I always laugh when ... my brother Roy sends me a text of the "most interesting man in the world."

Invite any three people, living or dead, to dinner. Who are they? Thomas Jefferson, Abe Lincoln and Pope John Paul II.

At the end of a really long day at work, I like to ... do anything with my family.

People who knew me in high school thought I was ... strong for my size.

My most unforgettable brush with greatness was with ... Bo Diddley.

I would drop all my plans tonight if I had the chance to ... vacation at Hilton Head Island.

If someone gave me a million dollars, there is still no way I would ... move from my house.

America should be more concerned about ... debt.

I'm OK if there's ever a national shortage of ... referee shirts.

When I'm on the Internet, I always go to ... ESPN College Football.

What is the most useful piece of advice you have ever received? It's from my wife: You can't change yesterday, but you can change tomorrow.

When I'm cruising down the road, I'm likely listening to ... Jeff Dorsey spinning the tunes.

I always get sentimental when ... kids who work very hard for a goal and fall a little short.

The older I get, the more I realize ... life is short.

If I had one "do-over," I would ... have bought Microsoft stock.

My favorite item of clothing is ... my old football jerseys.

If I've learned anything at all ... people are very nice and helpful.
