I felt like Shane was the center of the kind of stillness, and that everyone else could kind of orbit off of and around and, react around. He kind of watches everything.

I've always thought of him as a fairly noble character. He's a professional. He was a professional athlete who had a disastrous Sugar Bowl and a disastrous first two years in the NFL. It's this guy who needs a second chance. He's a hard-luck guy who is severely underestimated.
