Survey says: NFL players share some interesting opinions

(Continued)

What was the toughest part of moving to New England?

"The weather. Last year, it snowed so bad. At first, I thought, it'd be fun, interesting. I was sending pictures to everyone. After a while, enough was enough."

Clam chowder, Manhattan red or New England white?

"White, it's all I ever ate growing up."

BRANDON SPIKES

Patriots Linebacker

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

"I have no interest in it at all."

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

Shelby, N.C. - "You have to go to Bridges Barbecue. You can get anything, but I'm in love with the hush puppies."

What's the ideal Super Bowl city?

"Dallas. It's a beautiful, new stadium."

What is your top athletic achievement outside of football?

"I played basketball and actually was offered a scholarship to play at Wake Forest. In a playoff game on the way to states, I pump-faked, drove and dunked on a kid. It was incredible. #PoWwWwW. I flushed it, one hand to Asheville."

What was the toughest part of moving to New England?

"Just the change of location. I spent a lot of time in Florida. Great weather, people are nice, smiling in a good mood, because of perfect weather."

Clam chowder, Manhattan red or New England white?

"Both are good, but have always preferred the red."

BENJARVUS GREEN-ELLIS

What's the ideal Super Bowl city?

"Anywhere in the great USA. I am just happy this one is indoors."
