Second Interview: Duval Love

Offensive Lineman, Duval Love. In order to get the perfect atmosphere for this follow-up, we chose a local sports bar and got together to watch the October 17th Monday Night Football game where Duval’s former team, the St. Louis Rams, took on the Indianapolis Colts. In this interview we covered the UCLA streak, Terrell Owens in the pre-season, the Minnesota Vikings boat ride and most important of all, Duval’s future as an Offensive Line Coach.

All right, let’s see how much you’re following the Indianapolis Colts and this year’s St. Louis Rams. Who’s got the better Offensive Line?
I would say the Indianapolis Colts. I like their line. They’re protecting Peyton pretty well. They’re running the ball with Edgerrin James. They’re 5-0 so they’re having a lot of success.

Who’s going to win this game?
My heart says the St. Louis Rams but my brain says the Colts. They have a betterติดต่อufabetเว็บหลัก team, they have a better defense and they have Peyton Manning. St. Louis is missing their head coach and they’re not running on all cylinders right now.

How do you think missing their coach affected the St. Louis Rams?
It’s going to affect them a little bit because Mike Martz calls all the plays and that’s a big part of their offense. No one has the kind of timing he has but they’ll try and do their best but they still don’t have their head coach.

When we last spoke, you were pursuing an assistant coaching job in the NFL. I know you had some success this off-season. Fill us in.
I got an internship with the Philadelphia Eagles. Basically, I got in there from a recommendation from their head trainer, Rick Burkholder. He recommended I have an internship with Andy Reid. Andy Reid said okay and I was there for six weeks. I was there from the first day of training camp to the last day of cuts. It was a very interesting experience. Very valuable. I learned a lot and got my foot in the door.

You mentioned hopefully getting a call back. What’s the process now?
I think the process now is they like to hire their interns, so since I’ve been there and my foot’s in the door. I just have to wait and see what happens. I’m a lot further along than I was last year at this time.
