It took me a couple years to get over the stereotype I was letting myself get caught up on, being a football player trying to start a career in music.
You want to stand out and be unique and do something different. I always try to zig when they zag - I guess it's a football term, but it applies to a lot of different areas of life.
I've played under some of the biggest and best managers and achieved almost everything in football. Of course it hurts when people question it, but I've come to the end of my career and can look back and say I've achieved everything with every club that I've played for.
I'm a big sports fan. College football is my favorite.
You need to be able to work with people. Especially in football, it is not a QB's game... even though the media likes to make it into that - it takes the whole team.
I remember cleaning boots at Millwall on £250 a week and feeling like a millionaire. I'd made it then. At that time, if I never played for another club it wouldn't have bothered me too much because I'd made it with a football team in England.

For a football coach, there's nothing that matches the pain of a team not playing up to its capabilities.
When you take a year off from football, you come back for all the enjoyable moments. When you're not playing, you miss out on all the highs, but you also miss these disappointments. But I would rather be in the arena to be excited or be disappointed than not have a chance at all. That's football. That's why everybody plays it.
In football you have an adversary; in cinema that adversary is yourself.
The game of football is one of strategy and tactics.
I've grown over the years and I know how to adapt to situations, where I can go into a situation where there's a crowd of people and just take over. But pretty much I'm off to myself. And I'm totally committed to the game of football. That's why I've had so much success.
I think if I were a college professor, no one would say I was uncomfortable about being shy because that might be expected. But I think because of people's stereotypes, they think of a football player as someone who is very outgoing and I'm not.
A lot of football success is in the mind. You must believe you are the best and then make sure that you are.
If you grew up in a household with a football coach who looks like a drill sergeant, you would think you would be tough.
To me, having 500 rolls of fabric around is the most calming thing in the world. I think it's what football is to some guys.
Even though people involved in racing think that it has a big sporting stage, it is a minority sport compared to some of the other high-profile events: football, Formula One or golf.
To be able to influence someone or to be able to have a group of guys come together to have a successful team and to be together all the time every day for, you know, a year and longer together, you have to have a - find a common ground. And that common ground for us is football.
Our goal was to win, to win a Super Bowl, but also to win in the right way, to be role models to our community, to represent Indianapolis, the state of Indiana and the National Football League.
My private life is perfect. If your private life and your life outside football is good, then it is good on the field for you.
I think we've got a lot players in the squad who are more suited to European football at the moment.
When I was younger, I had some close friends who always loved European football, and Real Madrid at that time were the dominant force. I remember family holidays when we used to go to Spain, and we'd bring back replica shirts of Real Madrid and pretend to be the players when we played in the park.
Football teaches you hard work. It takes a lot of unspectacular preparation to have spectacular results in both business and football.

Football is a game designed to keep coal miners off the streets.
