Once it's gone, it's gone. Golfers get to play their sport just about their whole lives, baseball players play a pretty long time. But football, it's over fast, and once it's over you're not going to get that same feeling, the competition, Sunday afternoon. Everything about it is going to be over.

He's shown such maturity as a young player. I think he understands what he has to do. It's not like I was going to give him any advice that he didn't already know. It's pretty amazing what he's been able to do the last couple of years. He has played like a veteran. He made such good decisions in the playoffs.

You need to feel that the game is important to you. Lose that feeling and you lose your edge. There's no faking that kind of emotion. You can't invent the feeling. It's got to be natural, real.

The scoreboard can't make you a loser. If you walk off the field with your head up, you don't lose. You don't hang your head for nobody. People in the stands think you're the greatest or the worst - their opinion doesn't make a difference. The only opinion that makes any difference is your own opinion of yourself. Nobody can make you a loser.

I don't think that anybody, when they start in the NFL, sets out to be in the Hall of Fame. When I first got here, I wanted to be the starting quarterback for the Dolphins. I wanted to be successful. I wanted to win a Super Bowl. To think about the Hall of Fame would be stretching it a little bit. But as your career goes on and I had the success, then you know there is a possibility, you definitely know that.

I want to know what it's like to play in a Super Bowl and win one. My career will be great without it. But, personally, selfishly, I want to know what it feels like.

I know how important it is to spend time with my wife and children because I know what it meant to me to have my father and mother around when I was growing up. During the season it's not always easy... But I need that balance and I know that my kids and my wife need it as well.

What I cherish more than any record that I hold, any fourth-quarter comeback, any win that I was involved in ... is the relationships that I've made, the people I've worked with, the teammates I lined up beside, the opponents that I've competed against.

I'm getting married because I'm in love with a girl and want to spend my life with her. You can't live your life doing what other people want you to or you'll be miserable. At some point you just have to be yourself.

I look at it this way. I'm not putting age limits on what I can do. As long as I can do the job to help the team win and feel like I'm playing at a high level, which I feel I can do for a long while, I'm going to play no matter what my age is.

I think positive. I always think we're going to score. Two minutes is a lot of time if you have timeouts and you're throwing every down. You have to make the right decisions. I've always had great receivers, which helps. It's not just me doing it.

If you ask any great player or great quarterback, there's a certain inner confidence that you're as good as anybody. But you can't say who is the absolute best. To be considered is special in itself.

When you work hard to do everything you can to win, it's disappointing when you lose. It eats at you a little... It's hard to put into words what being back in the playoffs means. Anybody who's competitive all year long wants the opportunity to have a chance to get in the Super Bowl.
