Despite all your accomplishments on the field does it ever irritate you that most descriptions of your career start with you playing on a broken leg?

IT DOESN'T IRRITATE ME. IT PISSES ME OFF. ALL I DID WAS DO MY JOB. I FELT I HAD A DECENT CAREER, ONE THAT I WORKED HARD AT AND STRIVED TO BE THE BEST IN THE BUSINESS AND AT TIMES, I THINK I DID.

I ALSO DON'T LIKE IT WHEN IT IS MISIDENTIFIED AS A HAIRLINE FRACTURE, IT WAS A CLEAN BREAK. IT WAS NOT COMPOUND BUT IT WASN'T HAIRLINE, EITHER. BUT, I DIDN'T PLAY WELL OR PLAY UP TO MY STANDARDS IN THOSE GAMES.

ANY ATHLETE WANTS TO BE REMEMBER FOR HOW WELL THEY PLAYED AND FOR BEING A CONTRIBUTOR TO A WINNING TEAM AND A DOMINANT DEFENSE. I DID WHAT MERLIN OR DEACON WOULD HAVE DONE BY PLAYING WITH THAT LEG. TO ME IT WAS NOT A HARD DECISION AND I WISH FOLKS WOULD ASK ABOUT OUR GAME WHERE HE HELD SEATTLE TO MINUS YARDS OR HOW WE WERE ONE OF BEST DEFENSES OF THE SEVENTIES.
