The NFL season is quickly upon us and the first game of the season goes off on September 6 when the Saints visit Peyton Manning and the Colts at the RCA Dome. Here is an interview with veteran WR for the Oakland Raiders, Alvis Whitted. Whitted is a deep threat and defenses must account for him every time he is on the field. Last year, Whitted started 13 games and had 27 catches for 299 yards. In this interview, Alvis talks about who he thinks should be the starting quarterback for the Raiders and which team he is looking forward to playing most on the schedule.

Who is the toughest corner you have faced in the pros?

Champ Bailey

How do you like the new offense under Coach Kiffen?

The new offense is great! I am very excited about it and it is great to have the West Coast Offense here.

Who do you think should be the starting QB for the team?

Definitely Daunte. He has looked great and he has been a starter his whole career and is a proven winner.

Do you still follow the football team at your alma mater, N.C. State, and what do you think of the new coach, Tom O' Brien?

Yes, I really like Tom O' Brien. I dislocated my shoulder and was rehabbing my shoulder in the summertime over there. I spent a lot of time with him and he just sent me a bunch of hats and t-shirts.

Which game on the schedule are you looking forward to the most this season?

The Chargers!

What do you like to do when you are not playing football?

I like to play video games on my Xbox 360 and ride my motorcycle.

What kind of motorcycle do you have?

I have a CBR 1000.

I heard that you had a near death experience when you were a young child. Tell us about that.

Actually I had two. When I was 5, I swallowed a bunch of pennies and started to choke really bad. The second incident was when I tried to connect two plugs together that were connected on a wall, but I couldn't so I decided to bite the plug into my mouth and got shocked.

Wow, that is crazy! Thanks for the interview and good luck this season!

Thanks, this was fun.
