Survey says: NFL players share some interesting opinions

Just when you thought that you knew everything about the Patriots and Giants, we bring you the Hector Longo Super Bowl Survey.

It's a Thursday ritual, at least for the last five New England Super Bowl appearances, it has been.

We ask the tough questions, and pull no punches.

So here we go.

DANE FLETCHER

Patriots Linebacker

Ever really watch the Indy 500? Do you have a favorite driver?

"No, not a full one, anyway. Let's put it this way, Indy racing just isn't that big in Montana."

If I went to your hometown, where do I have to eat?

Bozeman, Mont. — "You have to go to Burger Bob's. The Cardiac Arrest Burger is unreal."

Outside of football, what is your top athletic achievement?

"I played Junior A level hockey in high school."

What was the toughest part of moving to New England?

"Missing my family and friends was the toughest. They are all in Montana."

Clam chowder, Manhattan red or New England white?

"White, there is no question."

KYLE LOVE

Patriots Defensive Lineman

Ever really watch the Indy 500? Do you have a favorite driver?

"Never watched it."

If I went to your hometown, where do I have to eat?

College Park, Ga. — "You have to go to Fogo de Chao. It's a Brazilian steak place. They keep bringing out all the cuts of meat to you. It's unbelievable."

What's the ideal Super Bowl city?

"Somewhere warm, Miami, Atlanta, Texas, wherever."

What is your top athletic achievement outside of football?

"Baseball my sophomore year. I hadn't played in a while, so I was rusty, In tryouts, I went out there against the varsity kids and got a hit. Then I took my lead and stole second. That made the coach angry, and he started cussing about how the fat football player stole a base. How could they let him? So I stole third, too. The next year he asked me to play, I said no thanks. I'm a football player."
