Describing an opposing team: "Sure, luck means a lot in football. Not having a good quarterback is bad luck."

 

- Don Shula

 


 

"I wouldn't ever set out to hurt anyone deliberately unless it was, you know, important —like a league game or something."
Dick Butkus

 

"My knees look like they lost a knife fight with a midget."
E.J. Holub


When I went to Catholic high school in Philadelphia, we just had one coach for football and basketball. He took all of us who turned out and had us run through a forest. The ones who ran into the trees were on the football team.    
-George Raveling

“Linemen are literally the unsung heroes of the game. Their situation is analogous to the infantry in warfare. They do the hard, bitter fighting for victory. As the generals reap the headlines in war, the backs reap the headlines in football. Yet in their hearts, the generals and backs know that victory and the accolades came to them through the work of the footsoldiers and linemen.”
-- Gomer Jone

 

I'd catch a punt naked, in the snow, in Buffalo, for a chance to play in the NFL.    
- Steve Henderson

I like to believe that my best hits border on felonious assault.   
-Jack Tatum

“Show me a good and gracious loser, and I’ll show you a failure.” Knute Rockne

 

 

“I want to rush for 1,000 or 1,500 yards, whichever comes first” George Rogers

There are several differences between a football game and a revolution. For one thing, a football game usually lasts longer and the participants wear uniforms. Also, there are usually more casualties in a football game. The object of the game is to move a ball past the other team's goal line. This counts as six points. No points are given for lacerations, contusions, or abrasions, but then no points are deducted, either. Kicking is very important in football. In fact, some of the more enthusiastic players even kick the ball, occasionally.    
-Alfred Hitchcock

"Men, I want you just thinking of one word all season. One word and one word only: Super Bowl." Bill Peterson

If you're mad at your kid, you can either raise him to be a nose tackle or send him out to play on the freeway. It's about the same.    
-Bob Golic

I'm not allowed to comment on lousy officiating. Jim Finks

“I am not going to watch this team keep winning games.” Matt the Dolphan
