Bobby Beathard

“We did it a little bit different than a lot of people. A lot of people in the league thought I was nuts. Maybe that was true, because I started trading away first-round draft picks and first-round draft picks were valuable…but we figured if it was a draft that we had evaluated…and it was rich in talent, we could get players in the later rounds.”

Robert Brazile

“I’ve talked to so many guys I played with or against…they tell me, ‘We never saw you mad…Guys told me they couldn’t understand how I hit so hard, but I never stopped smiling…how I would help guys up. It was like I was enjoying it.’ Well, I did enjoy it. I loved every minute of it.”

Brian Dawkins

"It's simple, ... I'm always striving to do more. Whatever I accomplish, it's not enough. I don't get satisfied. That's not my nature."

"If I have a good year, I think I can do better. If I have a great year, I think I can do better. There will never be a perfect year because I know there will always be plays I could have made."

Jerry Kramer

"The Hall is like the cherry on top of the sundae. It completes the story. And it completes the journey."

“I think I wanted to play, because football, there was just something about it that I responded…I knew I wanted to be a part of something. I wanted to be a little different than the average kid and that really propelled me the rest of my life.”

Ray Lewis


“Don't walk through life just playing football…Character and integrity and really making an impact on someone's life, that's the ultimate vision, that's the ultimate goal.”

“You gotta be hungry for it. You’ve got to put everything you got on it. EVERYTHING!  Every second. You have to be the first one in line. That’s how leaders are born.”

“Wins and losses come a dime a dozen. But effort? Nobody can judge that. Because effort is between you and you.”

Randy Moss

I love the game so much…for those four hours on Sunday, you can be free and just let it all go.”

Terrell Owens

“Instead of me having a breakdown, I'm focusing on me having a breakthrough.”

Brian Urlacher

“All I can do is go out there and play hard and try and help my team win, and that's what I'm going to keep doing.”
