TP: [Laughs.] I am a bit of a method actor. I try to get into the role of being myself.
Do you have the mind-set when you tackle that you want to take someone down and it's going to hurt?
TP: I wouldn't say the hurt part. I'm obligated to say that with the state of football nowadays. [Laughs.] The goal is definitely to bring someone down.
Have you ever tried to purposely knock someone out?
TP: No, definitely not. I've been knocked out way too many times to want to have anybody else feel that way.
How many concussions do you think you've had?
TP: I believe eight or nine recorded concussions. We'll have another conversation after I'm done playing.
How many unrecorded?
TP: When people say they feel a little buzzed or dazed, it's considered a concussion....
Do you consider that a concussion?
