Q. Why is there so much pride with players from the University of Miami?
A. It's basically the tradition. It's an honor to wear that "U' on the side of your helmet. You look at all the great players that have come out of there: Ray Lewis, Jim Kelly, Vinny Testaverde, Michael Irvin, Edgerrin James, Andre Johnson, Santana Moss. Those guys set the standard for us as far as being the best players in the land. There's so much pressure to uphold that tradition, but once you go out and do your thing that pressure is not as great.
Q. Who are your top three Hurricanes?
A. You're putting me on the spot. I'd probably say Ray (Lewis), Mike (Irvin) and Ed Reed or Jeremy Shockey.
Q. Where is Willis McGahee on that list?
A. I'm the best all around.
