Injuries obviously change the way you approach the game.
I think my stubbornness, hardheadedness and stupidity is what has allowed me to play for 20 years.
Every game I've ever played, regardless if it was pre-season or Super Bowl, meant the same to me, and I laid it all on the line.
Life deals you a lot lessons, some people learn from it, some people don't.
Obviously talent gets you to a certain point, but it's what you do with it, how you handle.
