NFL Qoutes of legends

Here's my list of favorite NFL quotes:

10. “I firmly believe that any man’s finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is the moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle-victorious.” -- Vince Lombardi

9. “Every time you lose you die a little bit. You die inside...a portion of you. Not all of your organs. Maybe just your liver.” -- George Allen.

8. “Hey fellas! This is what you work all off season for. This is why you lift all them weights! This is why you do all that!” -- Bill Parcells

7. “Playoffs? Don't talk about playoffs! Are you kidding me? Playoffs? I'm just hoping we can win another game!" -- Jim Mora

(Sounds like something I might say.)

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

5. "I'm raising the stakes now. If this is a poker game, I'm shoving my chips to the middle of the table. I'm raising the ante. ... Anybody that wants out can get out. This team is going to the playoffs. OK? This team is going to the playoffs." -- Jim Fassel’s ‘poker speech’ during the 2000 season which inspired his club to a Super Bowl run.

4. “Tonight, a dynasty is born baby!” -- Ricky Proehl, before Super Bowl XXXVI.

(I’m just guessing, but I doubt too many people in St. Louis get a chuckle out of that. It’s always sure to get a smile in New England though. )

3. “Man, I was set-up like a motherf***er" -- Lawrence Taylor commenting when reporters swarmed him after an arrest for attempting to buy cocaine.

On a sidenote, I think I'll use this quote for every question a reporter asks me the rest of this season. “Ken, how’d you blow a 10 pt fourth quarter lead?” Man, I was set-up like a motherf***er”. “Ken, what happened on that first interception?” “Man, I was set-up like a motherf***er.” Ken, how’s it feel to coach the worst team in the league?” “Man, I was set-up like a motherf***er.”

2. “I want to rush for 1,000 or 1,500 yards, whichever comes first.” -- Former Saints running back George Rogers commenting on if he had any goals for the upcoming season.

.... and #1 ....

1. "We couldn't do diddly-poo offensively. We couldn't get a first down. We couldn't run the ball. We didn't try to run the ball. We couldn't complete a pass. We sucked. It was a horse**** performance in the second half. Horse****. I'm totally embarrassed, and I'm totally ashamed. We got our ass kicked in the second half. It sucked. It stunk. ‘Cause they just blocked better, were more tougher, more physical, coached better, did everything better. We sucked."-- Jim Mora (the legend)
