Words of Wisdom

People who work together will win, whether it be against complex football defenses, or the problems of modern society.
~Vince Lombardi

I've never been a fan of individual awards because football is such a team sport. There's so many things that goes into making plays. It's about teammates trusting one another and working together.
~Troy Polamalu

Happiness does not come from football awards. It's terrible to correlate happiness with football. Happiness comes from a good job, being able to feed your wife and kids. I don't dream football, I dream the American dream - two cars in a garage, be a happy father.
~Barry Sanders

To me it was never about what I accomplished on the football field, it was about the way I played the game.
~Jerry Rice
