Pro athlete and eligible bachelor Colin Kaepernick shows off his chiseled physique on the cover of GQ magazine.

In the September issue, Colin Kaepernick chats about his love for football, how he’s coped with prejudice people and much more.

Check out some highlights from his GQ feature when you read on.

On reliving bad plays:
“All my life, I’ve had these flashbacks, these dreams, nightmares, day-mares, like visions, where I relive certain plays. Only the bad plays. I see them over and over, as if somebody’s rewinding a tape and forcing me to watch. Some of these are recent. But some of them go back to high school. Every time I relive these mistakes of mine, I’m also forced to ask, What could I have done different? What decisions could I have made? This stuff haunts me, but I like it, because it makes the game hard. And the more I study, the more comfortable I feel with what a defense is going to do.”

On loving football over other sports:
“You know what I love most about this game? You know what I miss the most when I’m away from it? Being around my teammates. That’s it! Growing up, when I dreamed about playing in the NFL, it was never about being famous, never about the roar of the crowd. It was about the other players, because there is no other sport where you rely on your teammates so much. The fact that you can go out there and trust ten other people without even looking at them, that’s amazing. That you can build that type of trust and have that type of confidence where you can throw a ball without seeing where a receiver’s at, and just trust he’s gonna be there and make a play… Do you know what that feels like, to know those guys have my back and not worry about that? I couldn’t feel any of that as a pitcher. On the mound it was just me and the batter. And the questions were all about me: What can I do to throw him off? What can I do to beat him? But there was not that trust, that feeling of others relying on you. That feeling of ‘It’s just you’—I didn’t like that.”

On being underestimated:
“I think the biggest part of my game that’s underestimated is the mental part of it. Probably because it’s invisible. You can’t see the hours I put in. It is funny to me that because I can run, because I’m athletic, people tend to see that as my only asset. And that’s fine–I hope they continue to see it that way [and underestimate me]. Look, I won’t say that view is ‘racist.’ I will say that it’s stereotypical. I’ve just heard it so many times before.”

Terrell Owens might not have had the best football season this year, but he does have his show, The T.O. Show to fall back on. The popular VH1 show will be back on the airwaves this summer, but not before a few changes are made.

Here’s a mini synopsis of things to come in the third season:

In the new season, T.O , who is single again, decides to focus on his barbershop, start a line of fitness products and form a personal training business just for women.

T.O. has  also decided to relocate to Miami for the off-season and asks his friends Kita and Mo to relocate with him for business purposes.   Mo and Terrell’s friendship takes a hit because of  his request and viewers will have to wait and see if they can work things out. On the other side of things, Kita decides that moving to Miami is just what she needs to get over ex-boyfriend Joe.

Kita and Terrell get a place together, but things take a turn when Kita has to deal with the NFler’s revolving door of women.

No concrete air date for the premiere of  the third season of T.O. Show has been released yet.
