My favorite food: meat, mashed potatoes and gravy.

Favorite movies: "Amistad" and "Dirty Rotten Scoundrals".

The one material possession I would race into a burning house to

save: probably my Palm Pilot, so I could stay organized.

Famous person, living or dead, I'd like to have over for dinner:

King Solomon.

Best thing about coach Spurrier: He has no fear, and he has fun.

Best friend on the team: Chris Doering. I've probably known him

the longest because we were roomates together in college.

How I would do on "Survivor": I guess it depend on how good you

could do by just being honest, because I probably wouldn't be too


Instrument I would play on a video: piano.

President of the United States or commissioner of the NFL: No

offense to our commissioner, but I think I'd screw less things up as

commissioner of the NFL. I'd love to be president, but I'm certainly

not wise enough to do that.

Cats or dogs: dogs.

How much money I'd win on "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire": I've

got some smart friends so my lifelines might help. I'd probably get

Alaska or Hawaii: Hawaii. It's where my wife would be.

Something about me few people know: I grew up riding dirt bike


Favorite D.C. tourist attraction: Lincoln Memorial.

Most embarrassing moment in football: In high school, after

handing the ball off, I tripped and fell and started to do a

somersault and was spinning on my head for a second. When they were

rewinding it on the film, something happened and the tape went forward

and backward, so it looked like I was just doing a headspin for about

10 seconds.

"Harry Potter" or "Lord of the Rings": "Lord of the Rings". Great


My happiest day: my wedding day or night.

Worst habit: one of them is biting my fingernails.

As a kid I always rooted for: the Miami Dolphins.

I rooted against: the San Francisco 49ers.

Title of a book about my career: "The Sine and Cosine Quarterback:

Up and Down and Up and Down."
