The game is the ultimate significance to me because it is so important to a lot of people. It has left a mark on our culture to be voted as one of the best to ever play.
For the entire world, Los Angeles is a city of dreams,
It was a wonderful experience to play in the NFL, and I have no regrets. I truly will miss playing for the Lions. I consider the Lions' players, coaches, staff, management and fans my family. I leave on good terms with everyone in the organization.
I wish my teammates, coaches and the entire Lions organization all the best.
My desire to exit the game is greater than my desire to remain in it. I have searched my heart through and through and feel comfortable with this decision.
I quit because I didn't feel like the Detroit Lions had a chance to win. It just killed my enjoyment of the game.
Shortly after the end of last season, I felt that I probably would not return for the 1999-2000 season. I also felt that I should take as much time as possible to sort through my feelings and make sure that my feelings were backed with conviction.
I want to thank all of the fans and media who made playing in the NFL such a wonderful experience. I have had the pleasure of meeting many of them.
Christianity affects your whole life. I feel I'm more competitive, a better player, but off the field is where there is always a battle.
That's one of those runs that definitely caught me off guard. That's one of those that brings you out of your seat. What I always understood about running is that a lot of it had to do with vision and reaction and responding to what you see. He is an uncommon threat.
I was always conscious of the fact that I didn't make it to a Super Bowl, but it hits me even more now because the game is in Detroit. You feel the impact more.
Let's just win it and go home.
