ZONK! Interview With Larry Csonka

Brad WolffContributor ISeptember 9, 2010

The NFL season begins tonight with the Saints playing the Vikings. Join a debate at 8:30pm ET to talk about the game. Join at any time and speak your mind. Now I had 2 NFL interviews ready and I chose out of my Oakland A's hat between Csonka and a two-time Pro Bowler. You tell me who won? Csonka was a part of the 1972 undefeated Dolphins team. He was one of the best running backs of all-time. He broke records at Syracuse University previously held by Ernie Davis, Floyd Little, Jim Nance, and the great Jim Brown. Here is our interview:

BW: How do you feel that when you were a top ten draft pick you made $20K a year and Ndamukong Suh, a top pick, will make $12M this year?
LC: The money would be nice (certainly) but I wouldn't change my history.
BW: Do you think a team will go 19-0? Why or why not?
LC: No, I don't.  It was extremely difficult to go 17-0 and that record has stood for 38 years.  I think the chances of this happening are remote
BW: What do you remember most about Don Shula as a coach?
LC: The undefeated season.BW: How did you gain all of the respect of your teammates, as Jim Langer was quoted as saying?
LC: I guess staying focused on my job and doing it to the best of my ability.
BW: What do you want to be remembered most for?
LC: Being a team player.
