ELaG is in the building!
You see to be in a great place mentally. How long did it take you to get to this point and do you still have to fight negative thoughts?
No. I've been here since the start. Everything was so positive around me and there is no time for negativity now.
What are some of your favorite things to do that help you keep your spirits up? Do you read a lot?
The only thing I really read are the postings on my Facebook and Twitter pages. People send such positive thoughts.
Eric, Who is your favorite NFL team?
Denver Broncos all day!!! Growing up my favorite player was Terrell Davis.
Who is your pick to win the Super Bowl this year?
Denver Broncos or my NFC pick the Tampa Bay Bucs!
What have you learned about yourself after the accident that you didn't know before? Do you feel like you have changed as a person or are you still pretty much the same guy, just dealing with what comes?
I don't feel I've changed as a person but I've learned patience. Something that I've never thought I would learn.
It's a rule that anyone who shows up at ESPN has to give their opinion on Tim Tebow. Your turn.
I support Tebow, maybe he'll be the starting QB for the Jets oneday.
Hi Eric thanks for being so amazing. Despite your injury do you still envision yourself being involved in Football for a long time? You see, read, and know the game quite well. You've been drafted and are extremely well known. I'm wondering if you've thought about a career coaching or working in broadcasting? Would that interest you? I think you would be fantastic. Don't give up, you can do whatever your mind sets itself on. Thanks Eric
Yes I do. I see myself making a broadcast career out of it.
Do you set a lot of short term goals for your rehabilitation? What are you working on right now?
I try to set goals for things that I can control. Like sitting straight up.
What has surprised you most about being a broadcaster? Also, how does Rutgers replace Holmes on the DL? Thanks!
Making sure I'm on point with whatever I say. If not, it can come off bad. It's hard, but it means the young guys have to step up and more playing time for the veterans.
What is your opinion of the attention being paid to safety issues in the NFL? Do you feel any of the changes have resulted in the game getting too soft, or is that what is needed?
I appreciate them for making safety priority a but I don't think the NFL should change any of its rules. I think what's needed is a more protective helmet but no rule changes.
Just want to tell you what an inspiration you are for so many. My sister was paralyzed In an accident in June. She swerved to miss hitting a deer , and rolled her vehicle. Our lives were changed so much in that moment. She is a hIgh school senior & just turned 18. She is a cheerleader
