SI: Are you stepping into a minefield with this job?

Esiason: It's a great challenge, like starting at quarterback [in the NFL]. It's a minefield because you have to live up to the expectations. It's part of the excitement.

SI: People are going to learn about your politics and things normally not associated with a sportscaster. Does that concern you?

Esiason: No. Am I going to tell you the night before the election who I'm endorsing? No. I don't think people give a damn.

SI: Who are your three dream radio guests?

Esiason: Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad so I can grill the s--- out of him. Michael Jordan, to ask him about what he thinks of today's athlete. And Gisele B�ndchen. To get the real scoop on Tom Brady, and just to say that I interviewed her. My buddies would be impressed.
