Doug Farrar Interview with Steve Smith

Doug Farrar (found on Shutdown Corner on Yahoo Sports) , recently conducted an interview with Steve Smith.  He asked him about his wife's health, playing with new quarterbacks, mentoring younger players, and winning.  Great interview.   On his wife's health playing into his retirement thoughts:

Because after football, after the money and all that stuff … when you walk out of the stadium after a win or a loss … for me, I walk out of the stadium with my family. If walking out of the stadium last year was the last time, then so be it, because I had a greater reward waiting for me at home that no money can buy. This was my wife — my companion for the last 11 years now.

She's been with me though all the "interesting" things that have happened to me throughout my career — broken ankle, broken arm, even in college when I broke my neck — she's been with me through all those things. For me to not stop what I was doing, and direct the right attention to what she deserves and needs, I wouldn't be doing my wife or my children honor.

This is why Steve Smith is the freakin man.  Got a lot of respect for a guy who's clearly got his priorities in the right place.

Pretty good interview.  Definitely worth checking out!  Go here and here to read parts 1 and 2.
