Trading E-Mail With... Bucs All-Pro defensive tackle and part-time tight end Warren Sapp

SI: How did it feel to be leading the Super Bowl champs in yards
per catch (14.0) after Week 1?

This is an article from the Sept. 22, 2003 issue Original Layout

Sapp: I want to see if I can get to the Pro Bowl both ways.

SI: What's it going to be like when your defense plays the Colts'
high-powered offense for the first time on Oct. 6?

Sapp: Four hungry men--that's how our line will be. It's the one
thing [Indianapolis running back] Edgerrin James has been looking
forward to. There's that Cane thing with us [having played at]
Miami.

SI: You're a football historian: Steelers' defense of the 1970s,
Bears' of the mid-'80s, Ravens' in 2000, Bucs' of today--rank
'em.

Sapp: Steel Curtain is No. 1; they own the most championships and
have the most Hall of Famers. Then the Bucs, because we have done
it for a longer time than the mid-'80s Bears and the 2000 Ravens.
The Bears go behind us; defending champs don't go 14-2 and have a
home playoff game after a bye and get thumped by the Redskins.
Boooo! The 2000 Ravens didn't last.

SI: After beating Philly in the NFC title game and the season
opener, are you guys in the Eagles' heads?

Sapp: No. It's just tough sometimes when the other team is better
than you are.

SI: Best player who ever blocked you?

Sapp: Nobody can block me. But I guess it would be Randall
McDaniel and Larry Allen.

SI: Howard Dean or George Bush in 2004?

Sapp: Who is Howard Dean?
