You have to stay one level above everyone else.
There is hard hitting, but the hitting is not nearly as hard as it used to be.
The plays I remember are the plays I made a mistake.
I have seen the Raiders develop into what they are today.
The NFL offensive blocking is played differently; they use their hands instead of their head and shoulders.
It’s not that difficult to win. It’s more difficult to win consistently and stay on top.
I think the officials and NFL owners are playing to the type of game that people want to see.
I have been a part of this development, so I am very proud of it.
Everyone wants to beat us. So you can never take a single game lightly.
It was a very exciting time for me to play professional football, finally.
Everyday I walked on to the field I was the best center.
But now there are more concussions due to not being used to the hard hitting.
I work here at the Raiders. My position is basically what I make it.
We have always had great and loyal fans in Oakland.
When I hear anything derogatory towards the Raiders, I am definitely hurt.
