Football is what you do, but it's not who you are. It's a big part of who you are. Part of who you are is you're a football player. It's your profession. It's a game you love to play. It's a game I love to play.
I realize that as the quarterback, you have to assume some sort of leadership role because you have to talk in the huddle on every play, and you're essentially giving out orders to the team. But in my mind, I have to prove myself on the field before I can start asserting a leadership role.
No one prepares to lose ... we prepare to win.
For better or worse, a lot of people's images are based on the first things that are written about them. You can't control what people write about you, so - good or bad - I have never lost sleep about it.
I think leadership is most effective when it's your own personality. But I feel like it's a natural progression as a quarterback, as well.

My dad hasn't said much about his college days. Oh, a few times, he might start telling stories. And I've seen some highlight film of him from college. I remember thinking he looked really small. Which is funny, because growing up, I thought he was a pretty big guy.
I've been lucky enough to be around some great coaches, all the way from Pop Warner to now.

The victories are what I judge things on.

Peyton was the best, my favorite quarterback growing up.
It's fun to learn a new playbook.
