How does it feel to truly be the face of an NFL franchise after only one year in the league?

After the way you handled yourself on the field, being able to win the 2008 AP Offensive Rookie of the Year award, do you feel the Atlanta community has embraced you as their own?

You were able to lead the Falcons to the playoffs with an 11-5 record in your rookie year, what can you do to improve your game so that you avoid the so called "sophomore slump" and lead the Falcons to their first back to back winning seasons?

Being drafted in the top 10 of the NFL draft is a big accomplishment, do you have any advice for Matthew Stafford and Mark Sanchez, the two quarterbacks taken in the top 10 of this year's draft?

The Falcons acquired future Hall of Fame TE Tony Gonzalez in the off-season, how do you feel Gonzalez improves Atlanta offensively?

With the departures of veterans Lawyer Milloy, Kieth Brooking, Todd Weiner, and Wayne Gandy, who do you feel has stepped up to the leadership roles in the locker room?

You had a stellar career at Boston College of the ACC, what will it be like to play week three at Foxborough against the New England Patriots?
