Scoring on a quarterback sneak was not a big deal. That was like cheating. I just threw my body forward and held onto the ball. What I did love was running the ball in from twenty-five yards--but only if the run had some theatrics to it; for example, breaking a tackle and diving into the end zone. I loved that. Diving was great. My absolute favorite way to score was diving for a corner of the end zone, sticking the ball out in front of me, grazing one of the flags in the corner. Oh my, that was sweet. I did it, lemme se, counting all the games I played, including playoff games and preseason exhibitions, it was ... one time, I believe. But man, that was football as it oughta be.

Football used to be my god but no longer is. I still love it, I’m still aggressive, I still want to be very successful at it, I want to win a lot of football games. And my job is to be the best football player in the world, because it affords me a life; it pays, it’s my job, and so it hasn’t dulled my senses for the game or the love or the great excitement I get from the game. It’s just that I’m very much at peace with myself because of my faith.

You find out in life that people really like you funny. So what do you give 'em? Humor. And then if you show them the other side, they don't like you as much. I find, too, that I can hide behind the idiot's mask being funny, and you never see the sorrow or the pain.

So, that puts you on medication. Did that for years. Then got tested for clinical depression. So, finally when they tell you this, you go, ‘ahhh, this is great.’ So, now this explains events in your life and how you handle them. But our society frowns on it and they don’t want their heroes to have these issues, but unfortunately I do.

TERRY BRADSHAW, It's Only a Game

You can't dodge them all. I got hammered plenty of times through the years. But you just get up and keep playing. I can tell you from experience, though. Sometimes it hurts like hell.
