The only qualifications for a lineman are to be big and dumb. To be a back, you only have to be dumb.
To have that kind of ovation, that happens very seldom for a lineman.
Defensive and offensive lineman control the game and true sports fans know that.
Offensive linemen are like salt. Nobody ever remembers the brand they buy.
I learned from different guys I played with, too. The key was probably three people: The good Lord, the offensive linemen I played with and great fullbacks that could block very well.
Ray Lewis knifed through those offensive linemen like a sucker-punch switchblade slicing between the ribs of some inebriated trash-talking punk outside a sports bar.
I think some people just don't know that much about comedy. It would be like a person who didn't know anything about football thinking all offensive linemen are the same.
I would have all my offensive linemen wrestle if I could.
I really like to play inside. I really like being able to go one-on-one with an offensive lineman every play. At defensive end, you're more running up the field and containing more than you are just against an offensive lineman.
If I could start with anybody, I would initially draft Tom Brady. Then I would go get Ray Lewis, and then maybe an offensive lineman, or somebody like Adrian Peterson.
Tight end is one of the hardest positions to play in football. It's right up there with quarterback and cornerback. You have to have the skills of a wide receiver and the strength of an offensive lineman, and it's not easy to balance those two.
I don't talk much to offensive linemen in general.
You take all the offensive linemen and put them in a burlap bag, and then you take a baseball bat and beat on the bag. You’re sacking them. You’re bagging them. And that’s what you’re doing with a quarterback.
Every great team that I've been on, the offensive linemen was the bell cows of the whole team.
You continue to build and work on new things, and continue to beat offensive linemen, week in and week out.
