Top Quarterbacks Quotes

Quarterbacks Quotes By Robert Griffin III

Quarterbacks Quotes By Deacon Jones

I did come up with the term "sack" to describe the devastation I was bringing on the poor, cringing quarterbacks in the NFL. "Sack the quarterback." That was nice. I thought it was lots better than saying, "Jones tackles the QB behind the line for another loss of yardage ... " It had a ring to it, and it caught on with the sports writers. But I tell you, doing it was a lot more fun than talking about it. — Deacon Jones

Quarterbacks Quotes By Cam Newton

I think for me, or for anyone who plays the quarterback position, it's almost an unspoken word when you think about leadership. Some guys can be a leader and be a running back or a lineman, or wide receiver, strong safety, or linebacker. But when you speak of quarterbacks, it's automatically a default that you're supposed to be a leader. — Cam Newton

I'm a bit of a novice myself." She smiled. Then she turned back to Jasper. "And please, call me Payton."
Like one of my favorite quarterbacks," Jasper grinned.
Only with an a instead of an e. And slightly fewer yards in passing," Payton said. Damn - now she'd already blown one of the three measly sports references she knew in the first two minutes.
Jasper laughed. "Slightly fewer yards in passing - I like that." He turned to J.D., gesturing to Payton. "Where have you been hidin' this girl, J.D.? — Julie James

Quarterbacks Quotes By Andrew Luck

I'm definitely a football fan, so I try to stay up with how teams are doing, and you end up getting a lot of buddies that play on certain teams. I wouldn't say I watch too much of other quarterbacks. — Andrew Luck

Quarterbacks Quotes By Kordell Stewart

That's the fun part of it all. You get creative when you're in Little League. You're creative when you're in middle school. You're creative in high school and college. And then when you get to the league, this position, the more mobile quarterbacks, we have a tendency to want to become traditional and nervous and panicky in how we want to call plays and put guys in position to make plays. — Kordell Stewart

Quarterbacks Quotes By Warren Moon

When people talk about the great quarterbacks, it's almost exclusively the guys who have won Super Bowls. There have been some very good ones who hardly get mentioned because they never won the big one. I don't know if that's fair, but that's the way it is. — Warren Moon

Quarterbacks Quotes By Daunte Culpepper

You have to have quarterbacks who can keep up with everybody else. And I'm not saying that just black quarterbacks can do that, but more black quarterbacks are given a chance because they fit the mold. — Daunte Culpepper

Quarterbacks Quotes By Chris Mackey

Why should we, the brains of the military, have so much anxiety about our contribution to the war that we feel we have to ape Special Forces guys?
To Fitzgerald commandos were just glorified jocks - pitchers and quarterbacks from suburban high schools who traded baseballs for bullets. There's no doubt they had skills. They could slither right up to the enemy on their stomachs survive on worms for days and plunk a target with a piece of lead from a mile away. All very impressive. But they couldn't speak Arabic or juggle a million intelligence requirements and 703 follow-up questions from the community while sitting three feet away from some Islamic firebrand who has no reason to talk.
"Do you think those Special Forces guys are wracked with Interrogator envy?" Fitzgerald would say. "You think they're over there in their special sunglasses polishing their special weapons saying 'man if only I could do some hot-shit interrogations and write some hot-shit reports? — Chris Mackey

Quarterbacks Quotes By Mario Williams

Quarterbacks are untouchable nowadays. If you hit a quarterback too hard, or if you fall on him with too much weight - which is a judgment thing from a professional standpoint - you're going to get flagged. — Mario Williams

Quarterbacks Quotes By Reggie Bush

The history says quarterbacks get paid more than running backs, but I think it depends on the caliber of the player - what you're getting, not just what the position is. — Reggie Bush

Quarterbacks Quotes By Peyton Manning

In the NFL game today, there are a lot of better athletes than I am, and quarterbacks these days are faster than the quarterbacks have always been, they're running like crazy. But I kind of stick to my roots of the disciplined quarterback. You know, I'm doing the same routine every week, studying tapes and working hard, getting ready to play and making good decisions on Sundays. — Peyton Manning

Quarterbacks Quotes By Ron Jaworski

I truly believe Colin Kaepernick could be one of the greatest quarterbacks ever, — Ron Jaworski

Quarterbacks Quotes By Robert Griffin III

Warren Moon and Doug Williams really didn't run that much. That's the negative stereotype when it comes to African-American quarterbacks, that most of us just run. Those guys threw it around. I like to think I can throw it around a little bit. — Robert Griffin III

Quarterbacks Quotes By Mike McCarthy

Preseason football is hard to evaluate. It's never going to be clean for the quarterbacks. You have to overcome the ugly plays and be productive. It's a component of leadership that is necessary. The guys that make it in the league survive that. — Mike McCarthy

Quarterbacks Quotes By Bill Parcells

I don't like celebrity quarterbacks. We don't need those. We need battlefield commanders. — Bill Parcells

Quarterbacks Quotes By Steve Mariucci

Quarterbacks Quotes By Drew Brees

There are a very few consistent, common threads among the most successful NFL quarterbacks. Most of them are intangibles, which you can't measure with a physical test. You need leadership ability, competitiveness, drive, and will. You need focus, poise, and charisma. — Drew Brees

Quarterbacks Quotes By Steve Mariucci

Young quarterbacks do well because they have a great defense. — Steve Mariucci

Quarterbacks Quotes By Ilsa Madden-Mills

From the moment she'd taken the stage, my eyes had followed her. Probably because she was tall and blonde and wealthy, a prime example of an American princess-type. I bet she was popular and the quarterbacks girlfriend. I bet she had a pet Chihuahua she carried around in her purse. No doubt, her parents gave her anything her heart desired. She was spoiled rotten and didn't know shit about the real world. Nora Blakely was everything I avoided when it came to girls. — Ilsa Madden-Mills

Quarterbacks Quotes By Raymond Berry

Andre Tippett was an impact player who consistently played at a level that set him apart. Accounting for him limited what an offense could do. He made quarterbacks nervous.and rightly so. — Raymond Berry

Quarterbacks Quotes By J.R. Ward

All around, grown men were getting out of cars and shoving at each other like fifteen-year-olds, the bunch of juiced-up, armchair quarterbacks ready to peanut-gallery it up: The closest they were going to get to the octagon was standing on the outside of the chicken wire looking in. — J.R. Ward

Quarterbacks Quotes By Ted Thompson

As much as I'd like to think I'm an expert in quarterbacks I'm probably not. But, I think college quarterbacks are put in positions where they have to do a lot of the things that are done at the professional level. The collegiate quarterback probably does on average a little more running than a pro quarterback. But outside of that, I think they're faced with some of the same difficult decisions and choices. — Ted Thompson

Quarterbacks Quotes By Kerry Rhodes

The good quarterbacks in this league, if you're not playing your best, sometimes will win a game for you — Kerry Rhodes

Quarterbacks Quotes By Michael Chabon

Novelist time is reptile time; novelists tend to be ruminant and brooding, nursers of ancient grievances, second-guessers, Tuesday afternoon quarterbacks, retrospectators, endlessly, like slumping hitters, studying the film of their old whiffs. — Michael Chabon

Quarterbacks Quotes By Jack Lambert

Quarterbacks should wear dresses — Jack Lambert

Quarterbacks Quotes By Don Yaeger

Marino was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2005, and his name always comes up when the conversation centers on the greatest quarterbacks of all time. But his greatness comes with an asterisk: He never won the Big Game. — Don Yaeger

Quarterbacks Quotes By Bob McNair

If you look around, there are very few really super quarterbacks. There are just very few. If you're lucky enough to have one, lucky enough that one of these Andrew Lucks is available when you have the top pick, then that's just a matter of luck. You can't attribute that to anything else. — Bob McNair

Quarterbacks Quotes By Joshilyn Jackson

There are gods in Alabama: Jack Daniel's, high school quarterbacks, trucks, big tits, and also Jesus. — Joshilyn Jackson

Quarterbacks Quotes By Ted Thompson

There are different 'It' factors for different players. There are all kinds of different personalities of quarterbacks around the league, but there are a lot of good ones and they don't necessarily think and act alike. But I do think there are moments during games even on the collegiate level where you can see that this guys is something different, someone sees things differently, they see things a little bit quicker, they're a little bit more cognizant of what's going on. I think it's something like that. — Ted Thompson

Quarterbacks Quotes By David Halberstam

The Patriots had picked Brady in the sixth round, and he soon turned out to be one of the two or three best quarterbacks in the League, and absolutely perfect for the Belichick system and for the team's offense. So, as the team continued to make a series of very good calls on other player personnel choices, there was a general tendency to talk about how brilliant Pioli and Belichick were, and to regard Pioli as the best young player personnel man in the League. Just to remind himself not to believe all the hype and that he could readily have screwed up on that draft, Pioli kept on his desk a photo of Brady, along with a photo of the team's fifth-round traft choice, the man he had taken ahead of Brady: Dave Stachelski. He was a Tight End from Boise State who never a played a down for New England. Stachelski was taken with the 141st pick, Brady with the 199th one. 'If I was so smart,' Pioli liked to say, 'I wouldn't have risked an entire round of the draft in picking Brady. — David Halberstam

Quarterbacks Quotes By Chip Kelly

I think that's another misconception, [that] our quarterbacks run all the time. Quarterbacks can help you in the run game, they complement what you do, but it's a running back-driven run game. — Chip Kelly

Quarterbacks Quotes By Miranda Kenneally

This must be the weirdest thing a football coach has ever seen: two quarterbacks making out. — Miranda Kenneally

Quarterbacks Quotes By Fran Tarkenton

Great quarterbacks, good quarterbacks, make plays. — Fran Tarkenton

Quarterbacks Quotes By Drew Henson

Players get a window of opportunity. Quarterbacks, specifically, usually get one. — Drew Henson

Quarterbacks Quotes By Jeffrey Lurie

The better quarterbacks are real consistent. Rookie quarterbacks are not. — Jeffrey Lurie

Quarterbacks Quotes By Michael Lewis

Ratings in the NFL. Then Kemp, too, was injured. His replacement was a fellow named Mike Moroski, so obscure that any question concerning his NFL career would be considered out of bounds in a game of Trivial Pursuit. Moroski had been with the 49ers for exactly two weeks before he became, by default, their starting quarterback. He completed 57.5 percent of his passes. Eventually people must have noticed. As Walsh performed miracle after miracle with his quarterbacks, — Michael Lewis

Quarterbacks Quotes By Amy Poehler

I should also point out that there is a secret code in each chapter and if you figure it out it unlocks the next level and you get better weapons to fight the zombie quarterbacks on the Pegasus Bridge. So get cracking, you task-oriented monkey brains. — Amy Poehler

Quarterbacks Quotes By Anna Kendrick

I've never really gone for the razzle-dazzle types: no quarterbacks, no flashy guys, and no Prince Charmings. — Anna Kendrick

Quarterbacks Quotes By LaVell Edwards

Looking at the championship-winning quarterbacks, Edwards remembered their particular talents: Steve Young: Here's a guy that is really a talent. He's the best athlete we ever had. He could run, he developed into a good thrower. He's smart. He's intense. He could make it in the movies. Really, he's got it all. He was coachable, but he had his own ideas. He never let up, not even in practice. I'd take Steve Young every year. — LaVell Edwards

Quarterbacks Quotes By Bob Lilly

We started playing the Baltimore Colts early, and I was still very impressed with Johnny Unitas, who just passed away recently. I thought he was one of the best quarterbacks at the time when I was very young, he was in his prime. — Bob Lilly

Quarterbacks Quotes By Peyton Manning

I see young quarterbacks just coming into the league, and they're throwing screens and layoffs right away. As funny as this might sound, I really learned a lot by going downfield, even in tight coverage. — Peyton Manning

Quarterbacks Quotes By John Madden

We need the quarterbacks. It's a passing league and a quarterback-driven league. We need the Peyton Mannings in football uniforms out there playing - the Tom Bradys, the Drew Breeses, the Philip Riverses - we need those guys instead of them standing on the sideline. — John Madden

Quarterbacks Quotes By Sam Kean

Rope-a-dope boxers and quarterbacks and hockey enforcers continue to shake off concussions on the theory of no blood, no harm. But each concussion effectively softens up the brain and ups the chances of more concussions. After multiple blows, neurons start to die and spongy holes open up; people's personalities then disintegrate, leaving them depressed, diminished, suicidal. Four centuries have passed, but macho modern athletes* might as well trade pads for armor and go joust with — Sam Kean

Quarterbacks Quotes By Thomas Boswell

Quarterbacks have to ask the crowd to quiet down. Pitchers never do. — Thomas Boswell

Quarterbacks Quotes By John Elway

I can't compare quarterbacks as apples and oranges in my mind because everybody's in a different system. — John Elway

Quarterbacks Quotes By Eddie Vedder

You know, rock stardom ... I have a hard time discussing that because I don't really accept it. It's not really that tangible. What's really bizarre is how it's used as a thing - you know, 'He's the rock star of politics,' 'He's the rock star of quarterbacks' - like it's the greatest thing in the world. — Eddie Vedder
