Aeneas Williams: Look out for Mark Ingram, the rookie RB with the Saints.
mcallisterfan: hey mister, what is it like to be in a pro bowl multiple times?
Aeneas Williams: It was a lot of fun. Anytime you get to take your whole family to Hawaii is great. It gets more serious in the 4th quarter of the game, because the winning team gets more money. I won 4 times and lost 4 times.
smellfeet: how hard is it to become a great football player
Aeneas Williams: Being a football player is difficult. When I wanted to become very good at it, I turned to better players. I saved my money to go see them and ask their advice.
Aeneas Williams: So the main thing was to find out how the great players became great.
tonywildxc: whos your favorite qb
Aeneas Williams: My favorite current QB is Tom Brady.
Aeneas Williams: My favorite of all time is Dan Marino.
Aeneas Williams: Marino's quick release was great. He played the game at a high level.
Aeneas Williams: Brady is always focused on becoming better and better. He has a great ability to execute when the game is on the line.
smellfeet: did u play football in high school or middle school
Aeneas Williams: I started playing when I was 4 years old.
Aeneas Williams: I joined a league when I was 7
foyter: do you have any tips for playing cornerback
Aeneas Williams: Run track! Being a CB is a lot easier when you know how to run.
fanderson45: Do you think you could cover good WR'S today in the nfl? such as, Calvin Johnson a.k.a megatron, Andre Johnson, Wes Welker, Desean Jackson, and Roddy White?
Aeneas Williams: Absolutely! I still train, I'm still in great shape. I could cover them. Smaller guys like Welker might be tougher. Bigger guys like Calvin Johnson were easier.
33roland: Who do u predict who's gonna win da SuperBowl?
Aeneas Williams: I think the Packers have a good chance. They're solid on defense, offense, and special teams. Their backup players are skilled too.
panthers271: Do you watch the football games?
Aeneas Williams: Because I still have a show that I do once a week, I view the Rams games weekly. I usually watch the Monday night games too.
thebird405: Who is your favorite current DB in the NFL?
Aeneas Williams: I really enjoy Darrelle Revis. He's very good at intercepting the ball.
leftcoast101: What is the best advice a coach ever gave you?
Aeneas Williams: If you're going to play CB, you have to develop amnesia about bad plays. Just forget bad plays when they happen
Aeneas Williams: You also need to have accountability when no one is watching. That's a pretty good life skill. Not just for football.
panthersstar: Why the number 35?
Aeneas Williams: I didn't choose it. It was given to me as a rookie by the Cardinals. If I could have chosen, I would have asked for the number 13. It was my number in college.
Aeneas Williams: But I'm so glad I got 35. I made a name for myself with it
rodgerboy12: How did you react when you were in position to have a interception and the ball was coming your way
Aeneas Williams: I'd just think of myself as a wide receiver when the ball was in the air.
jordo77: did you ever want to be in a different position
Aeneas Williams: My coach once made me a wide receiver. I liked it, but I don't like getting hit too much. It's my least favorite part of offense.
zafa3457: whats your favorite video game
Aeneas Williams: I don't play many video games. If I was, I would play Madden. My son plays that.
hikerbiker: whos your favorite team today
Aeneas Williams: My favorite team today... well, I usually root for the Cardinals and the Saints. But I really like the way the Patriots play too.
gbbeastyboy: what is your favorite hobby
Aeneas Williams: I like to be near the water. I also like hanging out with my family
Aeneas Williams: You are all very unique in how valuable you are. There are 6 million people on Earth, but there is no one like you. When you work on perfecting who you are, you'll go far.
