The More You Know…

With the NFL returning to NBC, it is the perfect time to have NFL players shoot some PSA spots. Sure the classic United Way spots are great, but it's time to directly address our youth.

Kellen Winslow and Ben Roethlisberger for Motorcycle safety.
(Winslow) “Motorcycles are a lot of fun, especially high speed Japanese racing bikes. What I’m trying to say is you should probably start on a Vespa and work your way up. I guess helmets are a good idea, but the bottom line to make sure your contract is guaranteed.” (Cut to a grinning Big Ben, toothless and bloody.)

Ricky Manning for Embracing diversity.
“People are different and that’s cool. Everyone has a right to not get their ass kicked…Unless that fool has a laptop. I mean what a nerd. He was probably using his laptop to play WarCraft or write programs in C++. That dude had it coming….So like I was saying, everyone is special”.

Sean Taylor for Handgun Control.
“If you’re going to carry a handgun, keep it out of sight. If some dudes want to fight, don’t pull the handgun. If you have already pulled a handgun on someone, plead no contest to lesser charges.”

Winston Justice for Pellet Gun Safety
“Pellet guns can be a lot of fun. But if it gets you kicked off the football team, it will probably affect your draft status.”

Ricky Williams and Onterrio Smith for drug abuse
(Williams) “There are people out there who won’t understand you because you’re a free spirit.”
(Smith) “Some people will question your need for a Whizzinator.”
(Williams) “When people say ‘you are wasting your talent’ and ‘drugs are a dead end’, you tell them you’re going to Canada.”

Terrell Owens for Teamwork and Success
“Life is a lot like football. If you think you’re better than others, say so. If you feel you are underpaid, do sit-ups in your driveway. Sure things can get rough, but in the end someone will still pay you.”
