This weekend the Buccaneers are honoring their first coach and quote machine John McKay while wearing the throwbacks. This got me to thinking about some really good quotes. I will give you all the 1st and 2nd one.

Elvis Grbac when asked about his receivers said "Well I can't throw it and catch it, too."

I want to rush for 1,000 or 1,500 yards, whichever comes first. (Saints RB George Rogers)

“….I firmly believe that any man’s finest hours – his greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear – is that moment when he has worked his heart out in good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle – victorious.”

“The spirit, the will to win and the will to excel --- these are the things what will endure and these are the qualities that are so much more important than any of the events themselves.”

I think the old coach for Bucs way back when said something to the effect of "well, we didn't block very well, but we made up for it by not tackling"
