12:58 am
eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. eliquis had both... ...and that turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you. from the moment you met you wantecomfort and protection that's why pampers swaddlers is the #1 choice of hospitals to wrap your baby in blanket-like softness

[music] >> the james brown show is brought to you by geico. >> at the age of six, today's guest dreamed he would be playing for the dallas cowboys. unlikely, you say? he was drafted by dallas in 1990. then, the rookie set a goal of passing walter payton, of all people. the nfl's all-time rushing leader are youed 125 yards a game for 13 years. impossible? it was, but he did that, too, while breaking many other records as well. folks, it's my pleasure to welcome one of the greatest running backs in nfl history, the hall of famer, mr. emmitt smith and still the nfl's all-time rushing leader.
1:13 am
please tell me you had no idea that was going to be the case. >> well, i wish i could say i had no idea. i always had a dream and a goal of making it happen. the reality is you have to go through the process in order to get it done. so, believing that it can happen, yes. will it happen? don't know. that's part of the process, part of the process of life. you want to achieve certain things, you have to set a goal. you have to set a goal further. i'm glad it did happen. >> dreams and goals seem to define you. i don't know all that well, but certainly those play prominent roles in everything you've done. talk, first of all, about the family life and when dreaming and goal setting became so important to you. >> well, i would just say my mom and dad, mary and emmitt.
1:14 am
my mom tried to instill in all of her kids that you could achieve anything you want in life if you work hard and are willing to pay the price for it. it's okay if you don't achieve it. if you get close enough to it and you feel some kind of satisfaction or some kind of reward because you worked hard to get there, you know you need to work harder to make sure you actually obtain the goal and perhaps go through and set another level. >> early on, can you remember some of the early goals you set in your life? in junior high and high school? >> i needed to get out of my hometown. no disrespect. >> out of pensacola, why? >> everybody that i saw around my that left, when they came back home, they were driving nice things. they were living in nice houses and so forth. i felt like in order to be successful, you need to look beyond your current circumstances. knowing that living in a 3600
1:15 am
square foot home, which is much different than the home i grew up in, just to grow and allow my wings to spread. in order to do it, i felt like i needed to get outside of pensacola to make that happen. >> what did it look like for you? as a youngster, were you thinking business? academics? when did football come into the picture? >> football was the first thing i ended up doing. i found out i was pretty good at it. when i started playing at the age of 8 at the salvation army, i started playing quarterback wearing number 12. >> hold tight. you were playing quarterback. how good were you? >> i never threw a pass. take the hand-off and take off running. >> being able to run the football and having that confidence at a very early age that i could play this
1:16 am
tim time, could you play at the high school level and compete and still be effective? >> what did you realize about yourself as a player then? did you have strength? did you have power? did you have speed? what did you recognize as a skill? >> at that early age, i had a combination of everything, speed, power, vision, agility, the ability to make people miss. i was pretty creative as a runner. and so, seeing the things i saw on television whether it was watching jim brown, walter payton, eric dickerson or anyone, watching guys run and somewhat emulating their style. seeing things on the football field, angles that's coming at me and avoiding those things and figuring out how to beat someone in a football situation, all of that was happening in my behind as i was playing the game. >> emmitt smith not only watched, but he applied.
1:17 am
we'll find out more and how he did it after today. >> portions of the james brown show are brought to you by geico. 15 minutes could save you 15% or more on car insurance. visit
1:18 am
[music] >> here's what a college recruiting expert said about emmitt smith. he is a looker, not a runner. he is not bad.
1:19 am
he can't get around a corner. when he falls flat on his face, remember where you heard it first. holy cow. so, emmitt, i ask you before, did you realize the limitations you had as a football player? >> no. i didn't. people had more limitations on me than i did on myself. >> others. >> others had more limitations than i did. i go back to what my mom said. you can achieve anything in life if you really put your mind, heart and soul to it. it's just a matter of mental toughness. mind over matter. if you don't mind, it don't matter. you have to do what you have to do. as a running back, you have to produce positive yardage and create the right distance for the coordinators to call great plays. if you do that on a consistent basis, then you are allowed to get the ball more than two or three times a game. >> so, help me draw this point
1:20 am
out, emmitt. how fast were you in the 100 whether it was a dash or meters? how fast? >> well, two different things. >> go ahead. >> a dash, i think the fastest i got was probably 10.3, 10.4. >> meters, the fastest was 10.5. >> put that into perspective. is that fast? >> not in florida. it's dead last, probably dead last in texas as well. >> you didn't let that affect you. >> football is not a track. ate not a track sport. football is a football sport. you have to have the ability, agility. you have to have these other attributes. you have to be able to see things and process things quickly it's one thing to get out of the starting line and run to the end when there is nothing in front of you. it's another thing to run in the
1:21 am
backfield when you have 10 or 12 guys in front of you and you have to zigzag and make them miss. track is when you can get out and run freely. football, you can't run as freely as track. >> i have to keep from laughing. it's so true. i worked with your coach jimmy johnson when i was at fox. i asked him, why emmitt smith? he said, when i looked at him and what he did in college, clearly, was superior. i went back further. i looked at what he did in high school. he was a winner. i went back further. i went back to pop warner. the man won everyplace he was. that's why i wanted emmitt smith. >> i appreciate it. that's someone that recognizes a football player. to me, there is a difference between a statistical player and a football player. >> statistical player versus a football player.
1:22 am
>> you can have someone produce all kinds of stats. run this, field like that, have these sizes and everything that fits the criteria of a professional typical player. you can have someone like antwan bolton. he doesn't fit that mold, but he knows what to do with the football when he gets it. he knows how to compete. he knows how to run routes and make things happen. the only thing they truly measure should have been measured with how effective this guy is in that position. >> clearly, you guys possessed an awful lot of talent. you guys dominated. you won superbowl after superbowl. there is no telling how many you could have won. in about 30 seconds -- it may seem like a stupid question -- why were you guys to good? it's not just talent. there is more to it. why were you guys so good? >> i think we were good because we all grew up together. cowboys was 1-15.

1:29 am
>> i was already motivated. that fueled me up more. i told him point blank, i don't know what barry wants, but i want to break your record. >> what did you learn from michael jordan? >> mj, i said, i need to talk to you about business and other things. he said, meet me in san francisco on this day. i went to the hotel, booked a room. we sat down at the ritz carlton and had a conversation for about two hours. >> he marvelled at the fact that you showed up. >> that and i reached out. same thing with magic johnson, same thing with roger stalbach. roger stalbach was great as well. the great thing about that, i didn't have to take a flight. >> he was right there in dallas. >> the nfl's all-time rushing leader. we'll explore those conversations more, as you said,

[music] >> i'm back with emmitt smith who in 1993 became the only running back to win the nfl rushing crown, be selected nfl m.v.p., win a superbowl ring and to be selected superbowl m.v.p. i must give credit. thank goodness from our audience here, the pro football hall of fame, you went from feeling low to kind of high. it was a new england patriots fan who put some things in perspective. >> yes. we were talking about over 4,000 carries. i wanted to know how many fumbles i had. >> he told you 38. >> yes. on average, i'd say about every 116 carries or something like that -- >> but, he put it in context.
1:33 am
>> a.p. had 34 and 2,000 less carries. >> what more do you need to say? >> after that, my spirits rose pretty high. >> and you played for 15 years. >> yes. >> welcome back. we talked about all of the things you did. you hoped and dreamed to play in the rose bowl. tell us about the rose bowl story. >> in the southeast, at that time, the sec never travelled out of the west unless it was a bowl game. in 1987, my senior year in high school, i was national football player of the year. i had the opportunity to go to my very first superbowl ever out on the rose bowl and watch the denver broncos play the new york giants. six years later, the cowboys played in the rose bowl. i played in my very first
