JK: Well, I threw up before every game. Everybody probably could have said I had a hangover.
DP: Every single game?
JK: Every game, including high school. Even basketball. The interesting thing about it was, we were so superstitious [in Buffalo] that my offensive line would not leave the locker room until I threw up. I shouldn't say I threw up every game. Probably 95 percent of the time. But the times I didn't think I needed to or it wasn't one of those games where I was so pumped up—like if we had [already] clinched—those games the offensive line wouldn't leave. So I went in there and pretended, just to keep those guys happy.
DP: You have one Hall of Fame ballot to cast. Peyton Manning or Tom Brady?
JK: I get asked the question, If you were a coach and you had Tom Brady and Peyton Manning on your team, who would you start? That is a difficult question because you have two totally different quarterbacks. Tom does stuff flawlessly. He's so smooth. Peyton has got those quick feet, and he's always wanting to move. So I'll start Tom Brady and bring Peyton in for the second half to run the two-minute drill.
DP: Greatest USFL quarterback: You, Steve Young, Bobby Hebert or Chuck Fusina?
JK: Chuck Fusina, good one. Two of those guys [Hebert and Fusina] won the USFL championship game. I had a kick [to win the 1984 game] go wide on me. Toni Fritsch.
DP: Let it go. Let it go.
JK: Well, you put me on the spot because you put my name in there. Of course I would say me. But if I had to pick one of the three, I would say Steve Young. You know about the greatest game nobody saw, right?
DP: Against the L.A. Express?
