Pewter Report debuted a new season-long weekend feature last season called Fifth Down that showcased some of the Bucs players each week to reveal what they are like off of the football field. We decided to bring it back for 2017 and this week in The Fifth Down we spoke with with safety Keith Tandy.

The Fifth Down is sponsored by Ford’s Garage.

Question: Who has been the toughest player you’ve faced in the NFL or college?

Answer: “I have to think about that one. Adrian Peterson. I grew up watching him and then actually seeing him and competing against him, he’s still got it. I don’t know why they’re talking about him getting old. That man can run.”

Question: If stranded on a deserted island with a teammate, who would it be?

Answer: “Probably Justin Evans. We’re tight. We came in as rookies and we’re always together.”

Question: Who is your celebrity crush?

Answer: “Man, that’s tough. I’ve got to pick one? Nia Long. I always did like Nia Long. There’s just something about her.”

Question: Which deceased person would you like to bring back to have dinner with?

Answer: “Tupac. He seems like a very intelligent individual. Some of the stuff—I’ve watched like all of his interviews— some of the stuff he talked about way back then is some stuff that is going on right now. He was way ahead of his time.”

 Question: What is the worst song that you could possibly get stuck in your head?

Answer: “There’s a song my old teammate used to listen to. It goes something like ‘Water, water, water, I splash on something like water.’ It just keeps saying water in the song. He’s just talking about water. I guess he is talking about having swag or something like that, but it’s just that fact that they can make songs about anything now. I just can’t get with it. It can be catchy, but I can’t get with it. I like different stuff. I like a lot of old school music. I like stuff that makes sense, that’s all (Song: Ugly God- Water).”
