A little something special for you today, New York Giants fans. We recently asked you to submit questions for Giants safety Nat Berhe. Today, we have Berhe's answers to some of the questions you submitted.

There were many more questions submitted than we could use. I selected 10, and Nat graciously answered those for us. We thank him for that. Now, let's get to the Q&A.

Q: What was it like working with Antrel Rolle in your rookie year? Did he take you under his wing? What sort of things on and off the field, did he teach you?

Nat: Rolle is a hell of a leader and genuinely a great human being. I learned a lot about being a professional from Rolle when you watch a guy do what he's done for as long as he has you look up to him for the blueprint. He definitely took me under his wing and gave me advice on things on and off the field.

Q: What was your favorite play you made during the season last year, whether it was on special teams or during regular defensive set? Conversely, is there any play that stands out that you wish you could have back?

Nat: Favorite play was making a tackle on the 10 against the Rams on kickoff. That was a real chippy game so I felt like it added to the momentum.

Q: What do you look forward to about working with Steve Spagnuolo, can you offer any ideas about what this change means to you, personally?

Nat: I just look forward to hitting the ground running. He's a hell of a Coach and I've heard nothing but great things about him so I'm excited to meet him, I was out in NJ last month and tried to stop by the facility and meet him but the coaches were gone.

Q: If you could describe JPP in one word, what would it be?

Nat: Playmaker.

Q: What is the most important thing you have learned from Tom Coughlin?

Nat: Coach Coughlin has taught me a ton of things, the one thing that sticks out most is just how to be a professional and represent the New York Giants with class on and off the field.

Q: Who is your best friend on the team?

Nat: All the rookies are really close but I hang out with Bennett Jackson the most and when I was out here alone for Christmas his family welcomed me to celebrate the holiday with them.

Q: If you had the opportunity to play with any player or coach in history, who would you choose?

Nat: Sean Taylor ... no question

Q: Coming out of college, the biggest knock on you was that you don't have "NFL size." Has that been a big adjustment for you?

Nat: The people speaking on my size obviously haven't seen some of the leagues premier safeties because most of these guys are sub 6 feet.

Q: How often to you read Big Blue View and other Giants news sites?

Nat: I see some of the tweets but I don't really read too many articles.

Q: What was the most memorable conversation you had on or off the field in your rookie season?

Nat: I had a ton of conversations with Zak DeOssie about how to stick around with the organization. He definitely dropped that knowledge on me. He just told me to do what I did in college and I'd be fine.
