It’s obviously the pinnacle of our job. That’s what you want to do is win a Super Bowl, but if that’s the pinnacle of your life, you’re going to come up short.”
A firm footed philosophy. Just like you’d expect from him.
Unlike many players, I suspect he’ll be plenty happy with life after he retires.
