Here are a few questions from the bunch, I hope this works Smile
Q: Have you ever had your fingers broke catching a ball before, and are you prepared for that to possibly happen catching balls from Brett Favre?
A: I have never broken any of my fingers before. I have, however, jammed fingers to the point my fingernail came off. I am looking forward to playing with the legendary Brett Favre, but I am anticipating that I will get use to his balls in practices so that I can be prepared during the season. ( I have heard stories about those balls)
Q: What are your expectations this year as a rookie?
A: My expectations as a rookie to learn as much as possible, work harder than I ever have before to prove myself to the organization and make my family, friends and fans proud! I am also looking forward to all the rookie antics that I have heard so much about.
Q: What do you consider your biggest strength?
A: I think my biggest strength is my communication skills. I really enjoy interacting with people, and public speaking. My college major was communication with an emphasis in personal relations.
Q, what style(20inch, tri-cycle, mountain, ten speed, etc) bike would you prefer to ride from your car to the field?
A: I am not sure what bike I would use, I guess the one that would get me there the fastest. I usually like to run places if given the opportunity, but I doubt that will be the case in the winter. I am not sure though, we will see.
Q: How do you feel about playing in Lambeau Field in December and possibly January where temperatures have been known to be -20?
A: I am use to cold weather being that played in Michigan all my life. I do know that I have never player in temps that were -20 before, but I thank God for the opportunity, and He has never put me in anything that was too much to handle, so I am sure I will be able to handle it, whatever the temp.
Q: Will you take time to sign autographs for fans during mini camp and training camp? Some players do, some don't, so I just wondered where you stand on this.
A: It truly would depend on the timing. I am all for signing autographs, it would be an honor! I truly would have to wait and see the scheme of things before I say yes or no (but more than likely yes).
Q: What are you looking forward to most about playing for the Packers?
A: I am looking forward to everything that the Green Bay Packers have: team spirit, great fans, playing with hall of famers, and believe it or not even the cold weather ( I really want to experience it for myself).
Q: Loved the pictures of you, your family, & lovely fiancee' on your website. Just wondering when you're getting married & if you're planning to live full time in Green Bay?
A: We actually got married June 25, 2005. The website is actually a little old; we are not sure on the place we will live yet. My wife still has one last semester in school in the fall, so she will be going back and forth during the season, so I think I am going to leave all those details up to her.
Q: Do you really appreciate all of the history and just love of the packer fans?
A: Yes I truly do, that is why I feel that it is a honor and a blessing to have been picked by Green Bay to play. The organization as a whole is awesome, and I look forward to being a true team player, and keeping the history and love alive.
Q: Looking at the current Packers roster, do you think we have what it takes to at least compete and maybe make the playoffs?
A: OF COURSE! I have friends that went to NFL teams in this years draft, we always joke about who has the best team, and who has the possibility of going to the play offs. I always win the debate.
Q: Do you see yourself playing out your career as a Packer?
A: If given the opportunity I would love to stay in Green Bay for my career!
I again would like to thank everyone for all their support, and such warm welcome to The Pack. I start mini camp Thursday, so I look forward to seeing everyone at the fence.
Thanks so much!
