Steelers.com brings you the Ask the Steelers feature. Fans submitted the questions that were asked. Please understand that we receive an incredible number of questions for each player, with many of the questions being similar, and not all of the questions can be answered. We selected as many as possible, and took your questions to the current subject to get your answers.
From Jim Campbell in Fredericksburg, Virginia: A lot is made about players hitting the rookie wall when the season starts to wear on. How do you avoid that?
Bruce Davis: I am going to take care of my body and stay in good shape. If there is something wrong, fix it. I'll make sure I do the ice, do the cold tub. It's about taking care of your body and watch how you eat. If you take care of yourself you will be okay.
From Jason Hippenstiel in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania: I see you majored in history, what is your favorite topic area?
Bruce Davis: I would have to say the Roman Empire.
From Steve James in Sanbury, Pennsylvania: What do you like to do to get away from football?
Bruce Davis: I like to hang out and watch a lot of movies. I hang out with my friends and relax.
From Randy Clinton, York, Pennsylvania: If you were not a football player, what career path would you have followed?
Bruce Davis: Broadcasting.
From Ray Cooper, Sarasota, Florida: Do you enjoy any sports other than football? If so, what and who are your favorite teams?
Bruce Davis: I like basketball. My favorite team right now would have to be the Lakers. I have been out in LA so long.
From Mike Powers in Des Moines, Iowa: Not long from now you will sign a contract and get a signing bonus. What's the first thing you plan on buying with that bonus?
Bruce Davis: A house.
From Greg Daniels in Los Angeles, California: I am from Los Angeles and am a huge Steelers fan. Have you already started to feel out there how big the Steelers fan base is?
Bruce Davis: It's very strange to me. Before I got drafted by the Steelers I never really noticed it. The day of the draft I went out after I got drafted to get something to it. I saw this lady with a huge Steelers sticker on the back of her windshield. I had to stop her. I asked her if she was a Steelers fan. I told her I was just drafted by the team. I didn't know they had fans out there. We talked for a while. Then I went to school and I had all of these people that I went to school with that I had no idea are Steelers fans who are a saying 'welcome to the Steelers.' It's just crazy to me.
