R-r-rookie, you’re no longer the intimidated,
St-stuttering from no esteem that you self rated.
The opposing linemen are the ones who belong
Near to the bottom, you own for a song.
You’re their daddy, the new edge rusher,
You the most feared, the quarterback crusher.
Go out there and show them what you got,
How hard you fight with all you brought,
Your strength, courage, and terrorizing sneer,
That look about you, the one with no fear.
Overpowering linemen on your very first try,
You’re the bomb, the man on the fly.
You’re no longer the one who’s intimidated,
But the intimidator who’s highly rated.
