The Questions with Randy McMichael

Dolphins Tight End

What was your welcome- to-the-NFL moment? "When I arrived at minicamp. When I got that phone call on draft day [in '02], it was real exciting, but it didn't really hit me until I got to the Fort Lauderdale airport."

Most embarrassing moment? "My first game, when I was wide open and Jay Fiedler threw a ball that hit me right in the face."

Favorite off-day activity? "Shopping. I buy new clothes for me and my two kids, and I try to keep everybody clean."

If I weren't in the NFL, I'd be ..."A kindergarten teacher. You've got to mold children when they're young, because when they get to high school, they get a little out of control."

Last Week

McMichael, the Dolphins' top pass catcher, had four receptions for 62 yards versus the Pats (page 66).

This Week

Goes to Buffalo. Week 6 has been good for McMichael: In '02 he had a team-high five catches; last year he picked up a loose ball and ran it in for a TD.
