Not everything on this site has to be about gambling! We like to stop to smell the roses from time to time and what better way than to reminisce in some famous football quotes?
The following are a collection of unforgettable speeches, one liners, announcements, jokes and random babble from players, coaches, reporters and announcers that are sure to never be forgotten. Enjoy!
Keyshawn Johnson: "Throw me the damn ball!"
Howard Cosell: "This, we have to say it, remember this is just a football game, no matter who wins or loses. An unspeakable tragedy, confirmed to us by ABC News in New York City: John Lennon, outside of his apartment building on the West Side of New York City, the most famous, perhaps, of all The Beatles, shot twice in the back, rushed to Roosevelt Hospital, dead ... on ... arrival."
"Sports is human life in microcosm."
It's not football, but who can forget Howies Frazier/Foreman fight call "Down Goes Frazier! Down Goes Frazier! Down Goes Frazier!"
Bo Jackson: "If my mother put on a helmet and shoulder pads and a uniform that wasn't the same as the one I was wearing, I'd run over her if she was in my way. And I love my mother."
Vince Lombardi: "The spirit, the will to win, and the will to excel are the things that endure. These qualities are so much more important than the events that occur."
"Football is like life, it requires perseverance, self-denial, hard work sacrifice, dedication and respect for authority."
Erma Bombeck: "Thanksgiving dinners take 18 hours to prepare. They are consumed in 12 minutes. Half-times take 12 minutes. This is not coincidence."
RB George Rogers: "I want to rush for 1,000 or 1,500 yards, whichever comes first."
John Madden: "The road to Easy Street goes through the sewer."
Lee Corso: "Hawaii doesn't win many games in the United States."
Archie Griffin: "It's not the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog."
Terry Bradshaw: "I may be dumb, but I'm not stupid."
Howie Long: "In Montana, they renamed a town after an all-time great, Joe Montana. Well, a town in Massachusetts changed their name to honor my guy Terry Bradshaw--Marblehead."
William "The Refrigerator" Perry: "I've been big ever since I was little."
Tom Arnold: (On Warren Sapp) "Hey, Warren, the Raiders signed you to a seven-year deal. I guess Bill Callahan was right --- they are the dumbest team in America."
Rickey Williams: "I didn't quit football because I failed a drug test, I failed a test because I was ready to quite football."
Joe Namath: Prior to Superbowl III: "I've got news for you. We're gonna win the game. I guarantee it."
Paul Tagliabue: "I'm a firm believer that all sports will eventually be global. Someday, we may have a quarterback from China named Yao Fling."
Jack Tatum: "I like to believe that my best hits border on felonious assault."
Bob Golic: "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."
Tom Landry: "Football is an incredible game. Sometimes it's so incredible, it's unbelievable."
Joe Theisman: "Nobody in football should be called a genius. A genius is a guy like Norman Einstein."
Jery Rice: "I feel like I'm the best, but you're not going to get me to say that. "
Dick Butkus: "I wouldn't ever set out to hurt anyone deliberately unless it was, you know, important -like a league game or something."
Bruce Coslett: "We can't run. We can't pass. We can't stop the run. We can't stop the pass. We can't kick. Other than that, we're just not a very good football team right now."
