They don't take advice from me; I'm too old. They take coaching, that's it.

Next thing I know, I look up and see the back of jersey heading to the end zone. I remember getting up and chasing the play, getting ready to celebrate.

He struggled, but he kept on playing. He's a tough guy; they don't come any tougher than Kendall Simmons.

He has a great feel for the players, when to back off, when to push it down and get on the pedal. He always kind of catches you off-guard.

We went the distance. It was longer than I expected, but that's all right. I mean, whatever it takes.

It's cool to be part of one of the greatest plays in Super Bowl history. You don't think about it going into the game or that much in the game. Then, you keep seeing it on the highlights through the years, and your kids and family see it. Then, you point and say, 'See, that's me right there. I was part of that.' That's why you play the game, to be part of plays and games like that.

Everyone wants to reach the head coaching level. I thought Detroit was an interesting organization. I think they have enough talent to be able to turn it around in a hurry.

Sometimes the defense dictates what you do. You like to be able to say we're going to run it when we want to run it, but then you stand there and go, this may not be a good time right here. There are certain plays you can call a run, there are certain plays you need to get out of.

To come back and have the season he has had this year after all that happened to him tells you something about Kendall Simmons. He's been outstanding.
