Which of these is your favorite NFL players?
A lot of players have come out and spoken about their personal experiences with the NFL.
Below are some of the highlights.1.
Mike James, Chicago Bears: “I can’t imagine what it’s like to be a black quarterback in the NFL, but it’s not like being a white quarterback.
I could see how it was difficult, and I can understand why.
But I also can understand the reason why it’s difficult.
If I wanted to play quarterback, I would have done it a long time ago.”2.
Brandon Marshall, New Orleans Saints: “It’s something that’s hard.
I just don’t understand why people say that [being black] is hard.
To be a part of the team is hard, and that’s the way it should be.”3.
Chris Johnson, New England Patriots: “We’re all here for the same reason, to compete and win.
I don’t know what the right answer is, but I’m sure you’re aware of that.
It’s a sport.
It can be tough sometimes.
I understand why some people say it’s tough, but you can’t just put yourself in a box and say, ‘Well, it’s hard for me to play football.'”4.
Justin Houston, Houston Texans: “My parents raised me to be respectful of the fact that people have different skin tones.
So it’s never been a big deal.
I mean, I don, like, really care what color your skin is.”5.
Michael Bennett, Green Bay Packers: “At the end of the day, I love the game.
I love being a football player.
I’m just trying to do what’s best for myself and my family.”6.
Brandon Weeden, Cincinnati Bengals: “The way I look at it is that it’s just football.
I’ve been doing it for a long, long time.
That’s how I’m going to be.
I hope that I do well.
I have a lot of faith in God and my coaches, so I’m trying to just keep doing what I’m doing.”7.
Terrelle Pryor, Denver Broncos: “You get to a certain point where it becomes a question of, ‘Do you want to continue to play?’
There’s no point in me continuing to play if I’m not getting better and I’m still playing my best football.
So, I just think, ‘Hey, I’m on the same level as everybody else.'”8.
Matt Forte, Indianapolis Colts: “When you have the opportunity to go out there and compete with the best in the world and get a chance to play and have the best football team, it just seems like the right thing.
It just makes you want better.
I guess it’s a part-time job, but if I had a career in that, it would be a lot better.”9.
Andre Johnson, Seattle Seahawks: “Growing up, I always looked up to those guys.
I was always thinking about those guys, and now I have the chance to go and play for them.
When I got to play, I wanted my teammates to be able to be successful too.
That means a lot to me.
That makes me want to do better, so that’s what I’ve got to do.”10.
Terrance Knighton, Indianapolis Titans: “If I had to make the same decision, I probably wouldn’t have stayed in the league.
But when I was younger, I played, and it was hard to get drafted in the first round.
So you never know, you could be a good player.
But, for me, it was like, ‘OK, I got this opportunity, I can do it.’
I’ve just got to continue working hard, keep practicing, keep trying to be the best.
And I think I’ve made progress every year.
I think that’s why I’m the player that I am.”11.
DeMarco Murray, Tennessee Titans: “‘I’m going through something.
I had one of the best rookie seasons in NFL history.
I’ll never forget it.
I can’t put my foot down.
I didn’t have the confidence to go back and do it again.
I know what I did.’
It was like a dream come true for me.
It was just amazing to be around those guys and play alongside them.”12.
Ryan Fitzpatrick, Houston Jets: “A lot of times, you don’t feel like you have to be proud of yourself for doing what you’re doing.
I try to be myself all the time.
I get to do that in every situation, and the best thing is, I get rewarded for it.
You’re always happy when you’re winning, and you’re always proud when you win.”13.
DeAndre Hopkins, Cincinnati Cincinnati: “Every day I wake up and it’s something I’m thinking about, ‘This is what I want to be
