Washington, D.C., is one of my favorite cities.

What’s the worst thing that can happen to a quarterback? He loses his confidence.

I did an album called 'I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry.' I sang the song on 'Hee Haw.'

I really started to forget things. That's why I quit reciting statistics: because I couldn't remember them exactly, and I stayed away from mentioning some players by name because I really wasn't sure, and I didn't want to make a mistake.

I didn't respond well to a firm hand and insults.

I was not used to criticism.

I know how much my late center Mike Webster suffered. I can only imagine what a lot of defensive players from my era are going through.

I decided to write a book primarily because people talked me into it.

You've got to stand up and do your own battles. My daddy taught me that a long time ago, that you fight your own battles. The only way to shut everybody up is to win.

Lawsuits make you care. I think the PR makes you care. But personally, when I got out in 1983, do I think they cared about me? No.

People respect you more if you just play and blow something out than if you take the easier road. That's how we think. You get more respect and people play harder for you. Just play till you blow it. Just play till it goes.

That's one of the problems as a Christian, is that we have to deal with our failures and the shame of it all.

I am a man that loves the flag.

I'm learning how to prevent my brain from getting worse than it is after suffering a career worth of concussions playing football.

I love the national anthem.

When I started as a color man in the booth with CBS, I would make footballs out of a roll of toilet paper.

Football is an awesome sport, but it's also a violent sport, and that's why all of us love it. We know what we checked in for, and at seven years of age, that's what I wanted to do with my life, and I didn't care that I got hurt.

Depression is a physical illness.

I just like to catch fish, I don't care if it weighs half a pound or 10 pounds. But I can't do a lot of casting. I can work a jig or a worm. But not for long, especially if the big ones are biting. Those big bass will make it hurt after a while.

All great empires die from within.

Any team can win.

I just see too many people retire and say, 'I'm going to take off, travel, spend time with my family' and they are just miserable. They end up dying. People who work and stay active, and like what they are doing, live longer.

I really don't care that I'm ranked.

All you got to do is look around. This country's getting worse and worse and more and more immoral, and we're rotting from within.

I am not much on down-time. I'm ADHD, and I gotta be moving.

The only way to shut everybody up is to win.

I was thinking, mothers show their love for their sons so much greater than dads do.

I don't have hair anymore. I've shrunk. I'm barely 6 feet 2 inches. I just had my teeth fixed because I'm a grinder.

I've been bashed my whole career.

I've always took care of myself.

Why would anyone want to read what I have to say?

After three failed marriages, I know what it's like to be replaced. So that's kind of how Joey Harrington must feel today... A former No. 1 choice looks to me like he's going to be a bust in Detroit.

I'm not afraid of being fired, and I'm gonna speak my mind.

I would not put Dak Prescott on the bench. I would leave him as the starter, and I wouldn't have a problem with that at all.

All my football injuries now have arthritis in them.

I've never had a problem with people expressing themselves. It's one thing great about our country.

I'm not a one-liner guy. I'm a story guy.

I'm a big card guy. I play Rook, Liverpool Rummy - love that. I play Pac-Man, shoot pool.

I know this golf tournament has my name on it but it's not about me. It's about the Louisiana Tech family. There is nothing greater than being a part of the Bulldog family.

I enjoy my public speaking. That's what I love doing. It's what I'm good at.

There's a company that wants to put hair on me! I don't know if it's plugs, I'm sure it is. I laughed and said, 'You gotta be kidding.'

I may be dumb, but I'm not stupid.

As a player, it says everything about you if you made the Hall of Fame. But, then again, boy... there's something about winning a Super Bowl.

I don't want to hurt anybody.

I have been playing football since I was 7.

Going out to play a game in front of 100,000 spectators doesn't worry me. Nothing to it.

When you're clinically depressed the serotonin in your brain is out of balance and probably always will be out of balance. So I take medication to get that proper balance back. I'll probably have to be on it the rest of my life.

I'm against people reading statements. When you read statement, I automatically take it as though you can't talk, and it's not real.

People ask me all the time would I like to still be playing? No. I'm glad I played when I played.
