gorsuch? dianne feinstein, it is a "fox news sunday" exclusive. then we kick off fox's coverage of super bowl li as the atlanta falcons take on the new england patriots, two years after deflategate. we will have an exclusive interview with robert kraft as his team goes for a fifth of super bowl. plus again from "nfl sunday" stops by. >> we would love to be on your show every sunday. i think we can rile you out. >> chris: and our power player of the week, j.j. watt on the big game and teaming up with barbara bush. >> obviously i love the city. i love the country. >> chris: right now on "fox news sunday" ." >> chris: you are looking live at nrg stadium, home this weekend to super bowl li on fox.
6:02 am
tonight the new england patriots play the atlanta falcons for pro football's biggest prize. and, hello again from fox news today in houston. we have plenty on the big game this hour including a raucous session with the "nfl sunday" crew that you do not want to miss. first we want to bring you up-to-date on another whirlwind week for president trump who was now fighting a court order that puts a nationwide hold on his travel ban. in earlier today in appeals court denied an administration request to reinstate the president's order. to discuss that and much more, we are joined by the vice president mike sb 19, -- i want to talk about blocking the ban on travel. a federal judge says that the ban does irreparable injury in areas of employment, education, business, family relations and
6:03 am
the freedom to travel. is there a danger to the u.s. now that these immigrants and refugees are again allowed to travel to the u.s., and what do you think about the federal appeals court decision not to reinstate the travel ban custom work >> first off from the offset of the campaign for the president and the administration, president trump has made it clear that he is going to put the safety of the american people first. the executive order that he signed suspending travel from countries that have been compromised by terror is consistent with that objective, and it is consistent with his powers as president of the united states of america. both in the constitution and under statutory law. it is quite clear that he has the ability to determine who has access to the country when it comes to national security. >> chris: but the federal court of appeal. >> the boston court made the right decision with the
6:04 am
continuing using of all legal means at our disposal to stay that order and move forward to take the steps necessary to protect our country. >> chris: but the federal court of appeals did not seem persuaded by that, and a judge of the case says that there was not a pressing safety issue. he knows that there has not been a single terrorist act committed by anybody in the southern countries on the travel ban since 9/11. not one. the appeals court seems to be persuaded, sir. >> i think that's why the judge's decision in the washington courts is so frustrating. and of course, it is different from the district level and the boston court. we do not appoint judges to the district courts to make foreign policy or decisions about the national security. under statutory law and under the constitution, that authority belongs to the president of the united states. and while the court did not
6:05 am
impose a stay at this point we will move very quickly. and as the president said, we are going to win the arguments because we will take the steps necessary to protect the country, which the president of the united states has the authority to do. >> chris: mr. vice president, let's turn to the sections that president trump imposed on more than 2000 entities related to iran's missile program. here is what the national security advisor how to say about that. >> instead of being thankful to the united states in these agreements, iran is now feeling emboldened, as of today we are now putting moran on notice. >> chris: hasn't had notice a statement by general flynn, has not president trump affected his own redline on a run? and if they continue how far is he willing to go to stop them?
6:06 am
>> as he said this week, all options are on the table. the iranians who do well will look at the calendar and recognize that we have a new president in the oval office. that disastrous nuclear deal that the last administration entered into with iran should have encouraged better behavior by the iranians, but instead what we see whether it be the flouting u.n. security, council resolutions, banning the missile test or whether it is the arming of people in yemen who just attacked a ship. but there is action taken by the iranians. we are not going to put up with it anymore. >> chris: the president issued other orders this week, basically saying that he is going to revisit the regulations on the financial sector that were enacted after the 2008
6:07 am
crisis. isn't this president sending a message to wall street that he is going to back off? >> the message that we are sending to main street is that we are going to pull back the mountain of red tape that is stifling access to capital loans particularly for small businesses across the country. we will get the economy moving again. i have to tell you, both on the campaign trail with the president, and since the upset with the big and business leaders, they tell us that in addition to cutting taxes that rolling back the avalanche of red tape that is stifling the economy, and stifling the availability of loans and financial resources is a paramount importance. and the president took this from leaders in congress who have been working to reform and repeal. we are beginning that effort, and we will continue to work hard while we protect consumers along the way.
6:08 am
we will work hard to advance the regulatory conform that will make resources and loans available for a growing america. >> chris: but mr. vice president, it was spoken on friday that the price of wall street stocks rose sharply. in the fact is that two of the key players are going to the steven mnuchin, the treasury's sectary, and white house advisor or gary cohen, and they are both former executives at goldman sachs. that just sends the message that you are ending at wall street, not main street. >> i understand that. we are proud to have both of them in this administration. but the reality is that you can talk to small business owners throughout the country and you have seen the availability of loans in banks across the country began to dry up small businesses, simply the cost of
6:09 am
compliance for smaller loans is too heavy. that is overhearing from main street coming is what you saw the president do this week is rollback those regulations. he is using common sense. and really unleash that kind of resources that are going to make it possible to see small business america, all of america grow and create jobs. >> chris: and in another action he nominated neil gorsuch to be his first nominee in the supreme court, and he said that democrats are trying to filibuster. they should change the rules so that they can confirm with 51 votes, not 60. here is the president. >> i would say if you can, you can make the reform. >> chris: and yesterday, mr. vice president, you said that he is going to get an up or down vote one way or another. that's raises the question, is it helpful for one branch of the government to be in a feeling of
6:10 am
coaching somehow on another branch? is this helpful to set it up as a standoff between the trump white house and senate democrats? >> over the course of the campaign president trump made it clear that he was going to a point of for on the supreme court a jurist in the -- and neil gorsuch has done that. he is extraordinarily qualified. his academic background is remarkable from columbia, harvard, oxford. he was ten years ago confirmed unanimously by the united states on it and we are very encouraged at this point. more than at half a dozen democrats have committed themselves to an upward look on the floor of the senate. neil gore gorsuch belongs on the supreme court. and he should not be the first,
6:11 am
the president and i made it clear that we are going to work with senate leadership one way or another, judge gorsuch is going to get an upward vote on the floor. he will be confirmed as the new justice of the supreme court. >> chris: i want to pick up on that, because after president trump sent out one of the tweets dismissing the immigration band, he said the so-called judge. later chuck schumer said that that just shows whether it should be extra scrutiny of gorsuch, because there is a need for an independent judge to stand up against the president who is talking about so-called judges. >> frankly, just think it shows how senator schumer is going to reach for anything to try and continue to obstruct the nomination of judge gorsuch to the
6:12 am
i have to be honest with you, it has been surprising to me since the advent of this administration to see the obstruction by senator schumer and senate democrats. one cabinet nominee after another. i'm going to be called on next week for the first time in american history as vice president to cast the deciding tie-breaking vote for a cabinet nominee. chris, that has never happen in the history of this country. i think it shows obstruction by the democrats in the senate. and people are tired of it. they want to see the supreme court have a new justice. or they want to see the president without cabinets. we will work are how it's art for the american people despite senator schumer and his colleagues at obstruction of efforts. >> chris: and in ten seconds, how confident are you that you have the 50 votes so that you can cast the tie-breaking vote? ten seconds. >> we are very confident that betsy devos is going to be the secretary of education. it would be my high honor to cast the deciding tie-breaking
6:13 am
vote on the floor of the senate next week. >> chris: mr. vice president, thank you for your time. it is always so good to talk to you. i know you are headed to houston for the super bowl, you are bringing the servicemen with you. safe travel, sir. to >> thank you, chris. >> chris: and dianne feinstein on the supreme court nominee. and the trump travel ban. "fox news sunday" continues its coverage of super bowl li. from nrg stadium in houston. what did you have in mind? i don't know. $6.95 per trade? uhhh- and i was wondering if your brokerage offers some sort of guarantee? guarantee? where we can get our fees and commissions back if we're not happy. so can you offer me what schwab is offering? what's with all the questions? ask your broker if they're offering $6.95 online equity trades and a satisfaction guarantee. if you don't like their answer, ask again at schwab.

6:16 am
>> chris: a look at the field here at nrg stadium, home of the houston texans, and citing super bowl li on fox. first, back to politics. joining me from washington, dianne feinstein. she will hold confirmation hearings on supreme court nominee neil gorsuch. a senator, you just heard vice president reaction to the judge's order on that immigration travel ban. and also his reaction to the fact that the federal appeals court out in california refused to overturn it. here's what president trump tweeted yesterday. what is our country coming to when a judge can hold homeland security travel ban and anyone, even with bad intentions can come into the u.s. if you say the presidents travel ban is unconstitutional. on what grounds, senator? >> i am not claiming that it is
6:17 am
unconstitutional. that is not my judge. i am an administrator. we have two practice of government. they are equal. the federal court has a right to make a judgment whether a law or an order is unlawful, unconstitutional. and that process has begun. i believe there are some 60 filings on various things that the president has done thus far. this is not something that is unusual, out of scope, it is very much within the scope of the three branches of our government. the executive, the legislative, and a judicial providing oversight. >> chris: but the president generally has wide discretion when it comes to immigration, and this white house says that there is no religious test here that yes, they are banning people from southern, largely muslim, countries. but there is no test on what their religion is.
6:18 am
everyone is being banned. >> we listen for months while republicans said that obama was issuing too many executive orders and exceeding his authority on executive orders. so, you know, what is soft is goose for the gander. there is great concern. there has been a blizzard of executive orders and miranda, some vague, some specific, some probably unlawful. and you have people in the streets here. this president has not brought the nation together as he says he is working for his base. well, there are a majority of people that are outside of that base. and i think my best advice has been, and i was able to say this to him directly, please, mr. president, you have to bring this country together. what he is doing is tearing us apart more and more and more. >> chris: senator, wait a minute. you remember the tea party
6:19 am
rallies in 2010 when people were very upset with president obama's actions, especially on obamacare? i did not hear you or any democrats saying that you should slow down, obama. you have to bring the country together. >> well, we are talking about six executive orders and ten memorandums that have been put out. this is not one thing. this is called shock and awe, and there is every rights for somebody to go to a court and see shock and awe in essence unlawful and unconstitutional. the president is not a dictator, chris. he is the chief executive of our country. and there is a tension between the branches of government specifically the movements of our constitution. one is a strong congress for the very reason that most of these kinds of things should be done within the scope of lawmaking. this is done within the scope of
6:20 am
executive power. and to the challenge to executive power i think can be made is appropriate to be made when you think that it is exceeded. and there are people in terms of particularly the nation banned aspect of this that believe that the president's executive order has been exceeded. so we will see. the court -- response has to be made through the courts by tomorrow. it will go to the ninth circuit. it will be reviewed. i have no doubt that it will go to the supreme court, and probably some judgments will be made whether the president has exceeded his authority or not. >> chris: let's turn to iran, because president obama repeatedly ignored aggressive actions after the nuclear deal. whether it was testing of ballistic missiles, or the support for terror, is it that
6:21 am
president trump is right to say that enough is enough, and until they are noticed? >> i think that he is right in this. i think that iran is wrong in this. let me be clear. these are not ballistic missiles, they are not conventional ballistic missiles, but iran has a lot of them. more than anybody else in that area. and the need to test right now i think it's very dangerous and should not have happened. iran also has an election coming up this year, the first part of the year. and how much of this is political, i cannot tell. is it a mistake, wrong? yes. at the president taken action with some sanctions, and we will have to see if they have an effect. they are limited in nature, but as you know the national security advisor has said rather clearly that iran is on notice. i hope that there is no more than this, it is not going to
6:22 am
benefit anyone for this kind of thing to continue. >> chris: senator, you are the top democrat on the judiciary committee, and they will be holding the confirmation hearings on judge neil gorsuch nomination to the supreme court's. you are going to be meeting with him tomorrow. and i want to ask you about judge gorsuch from what you have seen so far. i should point out in 2006, you are one of the people that approved his confirmation to be an appeals court judge. but one of the questions is even though he is more conservative than you, is he in the mainstream of judicial thoughts? i want to put up a quote from the former active soliciting general for president obama. in hit he says, i have no doubt that if confirmed, judge gorsuch would help to restore confidence in the rule of law. he says that gorsuch, again, may
6:23 am
be more conservative, but he has a solid mainstream judicial pic pick. >> at this stage i cannot comment. let me tell you where we are. friday evening the questions went out from the committee to the nominee. i view the minority parties challenge to do a full and fair hearing. and i have the time to garner the facts to really understand the history of this nominee. and we will do that. and i believe that the chairman has given us the time to do this, and also believes that the hearing should be full and fair. it is a product of the hearing, we will make the decision that maybe he is not in the mainstream of judicial thought, and that there are some positions that are egregious, but i do not know that at this time. then it is a different story.
6:24 am
but i want the democratic side to start out from a neutral base. they really need to do the proper exploratory work and then be able to hold full and fair hearings. and we will do that. then it is fair. i will make a conclusion. i will be happy to share it with you. >> chris: senator, i want to ask. we have less than a minute to left ear. there is a lot of talk about a filibuster. only one supreme court nomination has ever been filibustered in the country, would you even consider doing that at this time? risking republicans extending the nuclear option and saying that he could be confirmed with 51 votes, not a super majority of 60 votes? >> well, the filibuster is requiring 60 votes on culture. i believe that is the way that it is looked at. i have no idea whether there are 60 votes now. and this is the one judicial
6:25 am
appointment that does have that criteria, as you know. looking back -- >> chris: senator? we are going to have to get back. i hate to interrupt you, but obviously we will be following the story. we will see where it goes with the question of the hearings. thank you so much for joining us today, senator. up next, are you ready for some football? the new england patriots tried to win their fifth super bowl. we will sit down with the team's owner, robert kraft to discuss the big game and why the pats keep winning. we get ready for super bowl li tonight here at nrg stadium in houston. l that was made long ago, and aarp believes it should be honored. thankfully, president trump does too. "i am going to protect and save your social security
6:26 am
and your medicare. you made a deal a long time ago." now, it's congress' turn. tell them to protect medicare. and i'm just a guy who wantsants to sell him that so i used truecar. it told me what other people in the area paid for the truck i want. and because we're a truecar certified dealership, i already know the truck he wants. so we're on the same page before he even gets here. -it's fair. -and it's fast. look good? looks great. this is how car buying was always meant to be. this is truecar. ♪ >> chris: coming up on "fox news sunday," super bowl li. deflategate is still on everyone's minds. >> it is a part of our history. we are focusing on the game now. >> chris: we will ask robert kraft about the controversy and how it affected his relationship with commissioner roger goodell.
6:27 am
6:28 am
6:29 am
>> let's go, baby! >> you see right there, the sign, that is getting the fifth ring this year. >> chris: excited fans rallying in downtown houston before tonight super bowl on fox. at the game between the patriots and the falcons as topic one here in houston, but a close second is the continuing to debate over deflategate, how the nfl handled allegations. tom brady had the pressure two years ago to make them easier to throw. earlier i spoke with patriots owner robert kraft about one of the most successful and controversial teams. >> chris: robert kraft, welcome to "fox news sunday."
6:30 am
>> it is my honor to be with you especially the sunday. this is what we dream about an hour business. this is very cool. >> chris: you have been to seven super bowls, you have won four of them. what is special? what is different about this game? >> we have gone through an experience in the last couple of years where in life difficult things happen sometimes. you think they do you get treated unfairly, and you try to persevere and have mental toughness. you pick yourself up and do what is right so that you can get where you want to get. >> chris: let me pick up on that, this is probably your -- obviously your first super bowl since deflategate. you had to play a $1 million fine. you lost your first draft choice. >> and fourth round. >> chris: you say that this energized to your team and your
6:31 am
fan base, how so? >> sometimes being focused is hard with everything going on. i think that we realized how we were the center of attention, and in some ways i would say jealousy and envy are incurable diseases. it's nice to be the recipient tint of them, not the donor. and i think that for some extent, that is what happened. that is life. you have to carry on. if this helped the whole team focus and understand the task at hand. and tommy missed four games, that brought our team together in a unique way. >> chris: now, roger goodell talked about deflategate this week. >> it was litigated extensively, validated by the second court of appeal. >> chris: honestly, given how he pursued this, would it be extra sweet to get the super bowl trophy from roger
6:32 am
goodell this year? honestly. >> honestly, it is extra sweet to get the super bowl trophy from the commissioner whenever we can. this year and every year. >> chris: yeah, but come on, this year would be a little bit extra. >> i think it would be pretty cool. >> chris: i want to ask you about that, because what i really wanted to talk to you about was how you have developed a culture of excellence in this team. six straight afc championships, now, obviously it makes it a little bit easier to have bill belichick as your coach, tom brady as your quarterback. but in a league with a hard salary cap and a playing field, changing players every year, personnel. how have you done it? how have you kept them waiting for what, a decade and a half? >> the key is collecting good people, and then you have to have a sense of stability.
6:33 am
you are in the media business, we are in the media business. you know how personalities, egos can get out of control. and especially when you win in this league, everybody thinks that they are the reason that it happens. so i think that to management's job is to really try to keep everything together and have everyone check their ego at their front door. we have been able to have tommy and bill for 17 years. and we had a lot of people pass through at the same time. different controversies come up, but we keep the task at hand. and probably the most important thing besides setting a certain culture when we bought the team, lynn incorporated is making sure that everybody understands that there is no division. >> chris: when we talk about
6:34 am
the lessons that you have developed with your team that is transferable to other businesse businesses? >> the nfl is different, because no matter how good you are and how well you are playing, it is a physical game. so there can be injuries. there can be bounces of the ball that happened, no matter how well you plan or give things. and it is all about putting the team first. and i went out to practice. i was talking to one of our players, an outstanding player. his role might be to be a decoy the whole game. he will not be on national television during the glory plays. but he really believes that if that helps the team win, in the end that is the best thing for him. >> chris: speaking of business, you are the chair of the nfl broadcast committee, and you know better than i do that the ratings for nfl games decreased on average 8% per game
6:35 am
this year. one, why do you think that is? and two, do you have any thoughts about changes? >> yes, i think those are very good questions. i think first of all, the election during the first half of the year was a big difference. and we have some compelling entertainments going on that's got tremendous ratings. and then i am not sure that that is not still going on, but the debates and what have you, our ratings picked up the second half. i think all of television, the ratings are down. we had less then most. i think we have a real challenge in the future of how we present our game to young people. >> chris: like what? what can you do? because you are particularly down against millennials? >> i think part of it is we have
6:36 am
so many breaks during the quarter. may be we them by 20%. we have to make sure that our partners are still doing well, and i think that we have to figure out how we incorporate over the top in a way that meets millennials holding the towards watching mobile devices. i think the only and sports can bring the community together like that. and we take pride seeing the new england patriot fans throughout america, and the world really who come to us. and they feel a connection. it is a sense of family. that is a great responsibility. we are stewards of a public trust, it is a business. but in the end it is bigger. >> chris: it is widely known that president trump is good friends with you and bill belichick and tom brady, and in
6:37 am
fact, the night before the inauguration he spoke about you. >> good luck, rob. your best friend tom just called. he feels good. he called to congratulate us. good luck. you will do great. >> chris: given how controversial the president is, has that made life more difficult for the team this year? >> i believe in loyalty to friends, and to the president has been a great friend of mine for over 20 years. and one of the most difficult times of my life he was there for me. >> chris: i want to ask you about that, because i understand when your wife passed away that he was a really good friend to you. >> yes, he and melania flew up to the funeral, and they visited me. and he called me once a week for a year. he was like, how are you doing? what are you doing? and i was really, really down.
6:38 am
he invited me to things. >> chris: how long did this go on? >> for about a year. he was one of the people, the players in the locker room and of course my family was great, but he was one of the few outside people who really paid attention and who was a great help to me. and i will forever remember tha that. >> chris: finally, there is the famous story of you going to russia in 2005 and showing vladimir putin your super bowl ring and he walked out with it. did he ever give it back? >> no. >> chris: did you have a replacement ring made? >> yes, i was willing to have one with his name on it. maybe we will have the new president bring it to him when he connects with him. >> chris: i was going to ask you if you would ask
6:39 am
president trump in his first summit to give him a ring, get to your original back? >> i do have an emotional attachment to that ring. and may be, who knows? maybe if we win someday i could trade a new one with him and have it made up in good spirit of friendship. we will have him do that. >> chris: 's mr. craft thank you. good luck in the big game today. >> thank you. >> chris: the robert kraft summit, up next, the highlight every time we report from the super bowl, we sit down with the host of "nfl sunday," and once again it gets out of hand. >> what did you say? don't be intellectual. you said -- >> no, i actually have to deal with this.

that does not know their value, who does not play to the top of their ability day in and day out, game in anne's game out. trying to give bill belichick two weeks, and i guarantee you that he will find a way to get it done. you have to see the committee, which ones do you take out? who do you put the pressure on in atlanta, i put it on a young player, i would make match ryan, the young player go. >> i will make a prediction, it will not be a blow out for the reason that there is nobody who is going to turn the ball over, both of them protected the ball extremely well. >> chris: intellectual, both of you. >> we have to do this now. >> chris: argue for or against the nuclear option? >> during the football game?
6:47 am
>> is that what they are calling the patriots offense now? i want to ask a serious question, and i had an interview with robert kraft, i talked about the culture of excellence that they have built, yes, you have brady, bill belichick, but 16 years in this league, what do you do? >> i have to talk to my wife and figure it out. >> it can wait. >> chris: so how do they do this? they have a hard salary cap, changing personnel all the time? >> people asked me about the prediction that you make for next year, and i say, go to the top organizations, if you go to the top organizations, the top coach, the top general manager, the top owners, they are going to bring in the right people. and so, the players changed with
6:48 am
free agents. they go one team to another team, but if you go to the top organization with the head coac head coach, the general manager, and the owner will be successfu successful. >> chris: and the quarterback. >> but if you don't have that to start with then you just look around the league. your back is going to hurt if you don't have a strong core. >> chris: j.j. watt? now, i do not want to rub it in, but while our ratings in fox news have never been higher, your ratings, i am talking about the nfl in general. i am not talking about your sho show. >> no, no, don't let him do this. >> chris: they are down 8% on average per game, what do you say to that? >> the nfl, but our games, our
6:49 am
show, through the roof. >> chris: jimmy, there is no i in team. >> i think that some of it is political season, and i think that -- >> chris: they would rather watch us. >> no, we loaned you some viewers, because you are struggling. >> chris: we had the election. >> we have been dealing with domestic violence issues, things like that. and concussions in the national football league. we have youth programs that are struggling. moms will not allow their kids to play for the lack of coaching in the younger kids, so all of that has added up. and the nfl now is being forced to take a game now that needs to recreate itself in the eye of the public. and you know who they have to win over, the families. they have to win over though
6:50 am
mom. so yes, the ratings are down. you do not -- you can only pique so long. to the nfl can only go so long, and it starts going down. it down, down. >> chris: is this the intellectual conversation? >> he does what he does. >> chris: evidently. the question though, what about all of their breaks? i have been at home watching, and you have too many darn commercial breaks during the game. >> don't you buy the products? we have to advertise products so that you can know what kind of food to buy. >> chris: yes, but should be speeded up? >> they are trying to shorten i it. >> does get tough with all of the breaks, even as a player, i am like, why are you stopping the flow of the game? and it is a we are to society, you cannot just watch the football game. you are watching at, on your phone. how are you doing a interview?
6:51 am
texting your wife. very immediate to switch over. they need to find a way to speed it up. >> commercials on an average of 45 commercials to a game, 45 minutes, so, to answer your point, there is a problem. it is still the most watched event in the world. >> chris: yes, absolutely. every other sports would kill for your ratings, but not the news. you know that i moderated the debate? >> yes, i know you did. i watched on tv. you guys just kind of slide the numbers. of those are wrong. our numbers compared to your numbers. our numbers compared to your numbers. >> chris: bless your heart. >> you know how many people watch the live super bowl? >> chris: how many?
6:52 am
>> how many watch your debate? >> chris: i have one last question for you, and this is not just a super bowl, your son, defensive lineman, patriots, a football man, what does it mean to have your son playing as you did in the biggest game? >> it is a really surreal, and i'm not sure that it will hit me until maybe i am on the field, the national anthem is playing, the ball is kicked off, you have to understand that i got here 22 years ago. jamin, michael, michael and i i had the same defensive line coach. my kids have grown up here at the fox. they were running around this set 23 years ago tearing this place up and hopefully not breaking a monitor. these guys are family. so for all of us, and particularly my wife and i, and how he is in town, and the
6:53 am
opportunity is nothing short than amazing. >> you did good, because you are testing it and then you soften the heart about family. that's a way to bring it back. chris, great job. >> we would love to be on your show every sunday. >> i think we would wear you out. >> chris: you already have. gentlemen, miami, three years, it is a date. >> our pleasure.

6:56 am
next year, but it is bitterswee bittersweet. >> chris: you must most of the season because of a back injury, and you say you are now back. you probably say that you have the insatiable appetite to hit somebody on the football field. >> i will take it easy. >> chris: what does that mean? >> it just means when you are away from the game for so long, and something you love is taken away from you, i have not missed a season since fifth grade. i understand how special the game is and how great it can be. i cannot wait to get back out there, and with the defense, i cannot wait to hit somebody again. >> chris: when you say hit somebody, you mean? >> quarterback. >> chris: who have said that he would think seriously about coaching a football team in high school? >> yes, i think at that age you can really have some help in teaching whatever the dream can
