What I Would Do with Trent Edwards for an Hour

An hour of Trent Edwards?  Oh, the possibilities!  I can think of plenty of places I'd like to be with him.  The scenario's are endless in my mind!

But, let's limit the scenario to him and I alone in a dark room.  

I'd walk in wearing a red high-waisted skirt, a pair of crimson heels, and scarlet lipstick to match.  My hair will be done up in a twist with a pencil holding it back.

There are two red chairs facing each other in the middle of the room.  There are lights illuminating the chairs.  I would sit with my legs crossed in the chair on the right—waiting.

Did I mention there's a camera in the corner?

When Trent walks in, I'll stand up slowly to meet him—but I'll make him come to me.  When he reaches me, I will smile knowingly and reach out to him.

Our hands will meet... in a firm, professional handshake.

"Hello Mr. Edwards, my name is Brittany.  I have a few questions for you..."

And the interview will begin.

If I had the opportunity to interview Trent Edwards, I would love to ask him how it feels to have all of Buffalo counting on him.  Buffalo is, no doubt, a football town, and Trent Edwards is our man. He always comes across like it hasn't hit him yet—he seems to be above the fame of being a football star.  Where did he get that attitude?

Did someone from the league mentor him in his rookie season?  Or did he learn from the mistakes made by other players in the league when he was watching them on TV?  Was one of those player's he learned from none other than the new teammate Terrell Owens?

At this point, I still expect to get all the "right" answers from Mr. Edwards.

I'd ask him how he's been getting along with T.O.  I'd ask him how he expects the season to go with the new team member.  How close is their relationship?

I would ask Trent Edwards what he could teach the rest of his team. What can his teammates learn from him?  What does he learn from his team?

How does a home game differ from an away game to a quarterback?  What do you miss about Buffalo the most when you're away from home?

What will the first three games be like without Marshawn Lynch?

Dick Jauron has said in an interview with NFL Network that he's chiefly concerned with you being healthy on the field.  What does that mean to you?  Does it flatter you that he has no other worries other than you being injured?

What realistic expectations do you have with this year's season?  Do you think the new players added to the Bills roster will be enough to take the team to the playoffs? 

At what point in the season do the new players become teammates - no longer new to the team?

At what point are you no longer a "young" quarterback?

What do you want to prove this year?

"Well, that's about all the questions I've got for ya Mr. Edwards... What should we do with the other half-hour of our time together?"
