Cardinals safety Adrian Wilson recently spent an extended period in studio with XTRA 910 radio in Phoenix. His wife, Alicia, was also in studio. They discussed issues ranging from Darnell Dockett's Twitter account to the Feb. 14 due date for their third child (with Wilson taking credit for being a lover, not a fighter).

Hour one here. Hour two here.

Wilson and host Mike Jurecki seemed to have fun discussing Wilson's battles with Hines Ward in the Super Bowl. Jurecki noted that Wilson and Ward went at it repeatedly during the game.

"Yeah, it's football," Wilson said. "Hines is a football player. I'm not going to back down."

Jurecki then pointed out Ward's reputation as a player who might take a shot at an unsuspecting opponent,.

"I ain't worried about that," Wilson said. "Come on. People know how I play. Hines knows how I play."

But it wasn't just one play, Jurecki pointed out.

"Yeah, but I'm not one of those little guys in the AFC," Wilson said. "I'm not none of those guys. I could hold my own. I'm not going to back down from a challenge. He's not going to back down from a challenge. It was a good little battle that we had and he ends up on top winning. That is the main thing. He ends up winning the game."
