Lincoln Kennedy (born February 12, 1971 in York, Pennsylvania) was a two time Pro Bowl Offensive Tackle in 2001 and 2002 for the Oakland Raiders. He was part of the 12-0 national champion Washington Huskies in 1992. Due to his doubly presidential name, he is nicknamed "The Oval Office."
Kennedy grew up in San Diego, California, graduated from Morse high school, and was a first team All-American and first round pick out of The University of Washington by the Atlanta Falcons in 1993 (and played with them for three years before being traded to Oakland before the 1996 season). He retired in 2004.
Kennedy is currently a studio analyst for the NFL Network.
Interview with Lincoln Kennedy
Q . What do you think about having the Super Bowl in Detroit?
A . It's great for the people in the city of Detroit to be a part of a great event like this. The weather could hurt the outdoor events, but that's about it. Players don't care where they're playing. They don't care who they're playing either. They just want to win.
Q . Where will Super Bowl XL be won?
A . Every one is won in the trenches. Who controls the line of scrimmage will win. If Seattle's All-Pros (on the offensive line) can handle Pittsburgh's fast-paced defense, then the Seahawks have a better chance. The Steelers have to give (Ben) Roethlisberger time to throw to better their chances.
Q . What do the Lions need to do to turn things around?
A . They have to get an offensive line. They need to solidify it with good players, not just fill-ins, and they have to keep them together, too. They have good enough skilled players, but I'm not sold on their scheme. They can't spread it around enough to all those receivers. Maybe, they have to get rid of one or two of those high-profile guys.
Q . Can Joey Harrington win in Detroit?
A . It's tough to be too critical on Joey because the offensive line has been lacking. I'm more old-school. I love smashmouth football where the run sets up the pass. I'm the type of guy who's not hesitant to run on third-and-6.
