Junior will be here in about five minutes, everyone!

Hi!

Brandon (Florida)

Hey Junior, what do you think it will be like to do all those sport jobs? I cant wait to see the show!

Junior Seau
  (3:37 PM)

We've already shot all ten of the episodes. It's exciting, and I'm very proud of it.

Sean Shields (Portland, ME)

Junior, what was more painful- Getting trampled by a bull or watching Brees shred the Patriot defense for 5 touchdowns?

Junior Seau
  (3:37 PM)

Having Drew Brees throw five touchdowns.

Josef (Hungary)

Hi Junior!What are you going to do after you retire from football?Will you ever retire?

Junior Seau
  (3:38 PM)

I will retire soon, and I'd love to be part of a TV network. TV is something that draws a lot of interest for me.

StanJ (Watertown, MA)

A lot of games are close..and the menatl aspect to me is so important... Do you think this team can regroup and be strong for a January playoff run?? (And good luck on the show!!)

Junior Seau
  (3:39 PM)

We will definitely bounce back. Something about our coaching here with the Patriots is that we have short-term memory with losses. Thanks for the good luck wishes.

Brad (Gadsden,Alabama)

Junior, Do you have any pre-game rituals?

Junior Seau
  (3:40 PM)

I need to be in the stadium four hours before game time, I need a shower and shave two hours before game time, and other than that, I just make sure I'm prepared before I leave the locker room.

Aaron (Trumbull, CT)

Thanks for joining us today, Junior. Fans debate this all the time, and I was wondering a player's take on the question: which is a tougher pill to swallow and harder to rebound from: a close defeat like the Colts game, or an eye-opener like the Saints game?

Junior Seau
  (3:40 PM)

They both hurt in equal amounts.

sam flannery (westford, ma)

how good do you think Jerod Mayo can be. Anything like you?

Junior Seau
  (3:41 PM)

Only time will tell. Obviously he has great upside and a great supporting cast around him. I call him J-Rod and really like him, and I really look forward to seeing his transition and development through the years.

Teri D (Wellington)

Can you smell fear?

Junior Seau
  (3:41 PM)

No.

AR (MN)

Besides Peyton Manning and Drew Brees, who is the toughest quarterback that you have opposed or will oppose this season?

Junior Seau
  (3:42 PM)

Obviously we have a few games left to go, and those two rank at the top. They're probably two of the best quarterbacks that ever played the game.

Pete (LA)

I know you saw the USC-UCLA game... What did you think of that late touchdown?

Junior Seau
  (3:44 PM)

That was a reaction to the timeout call that UCLA made toward the end of the game. It was a retaliation more than anything else.

Stan the Man (Meredith)

Mr Junior.....Which Pats rookie are you paying attention to the most?

Junior Seau
  (3:45 PM)

As far as I'm concerned, there aren't any rookies; we're so deep into the season that we need every player playing above the skill level they started at. If we all do that, it's a brighter day for all of us.

Junior Seau

Aloha!
