| "They want to shut me up, but I get out there on the field and they can't. So I guess I get to keep on talking."
Shannon Sharpe, Ravens TE
| "I think it's a farce. I think my wife must have voted for me a lot. Obviously these people haven't seen me with my shirt off. I'll lose that award quickly if I have to take my shirt off."
Pete Mitchell, Giants TE
On a poll in which he was voted sexiest player in the Super Bowl
| "No, that was part of the quarterback's bones, [Michael] Strahan can't tell the difference between chicken bones and human bones. That's the problem."
Tony Siragusa, Ravens DT
After Strahan joked that opponents find chicken bones on the field after Siragusa plays
| "I want the champagne in the locker room. I want to pour it all over me. I want to bathe in it."
Glenn Parker, Giants OL
On the prospect of winning the Super Bowl after four losses
| "The Giants offense and the Ravens offense will not play. The defenses are going to go out there and it's going to be like an old-fashioned game of rugby. ... This came right from the head man himself, [NFL commissioner] Paul Tagliabue. We've got to do what he tells us to do."
Qadry Ismail, Ravens WR
| "Who the (bleep) are you, a comedian?"
Keith Hamilton, Giants DT
Reacting to an interruption by FOX Sports' Jay Mohr
| "I don't see where it would be a pain for me. My focus is on why on came here -- to try to win a Super Bowl. So everything else, to start it off, is simple. I'm not here to try to justify anything that has gone on because that is a story in my book that is closed, regardless of what questions come up. The thing is, all the questions are always based around me, and it's not about me."
Ray Lewis, Ravens LB
| "I'm eating Double Whoppers with extra cheese this week. I'm trying to beef up for him."
Dusty Ziegler, Giants C
On lining up against Tony Siragusa
| "I have a right to an opinion. I sit here all year long like every coach and you all question, you criticize, you second-guess, you grade, you denigrate at times. And when you turn it back the other way and as someone with a degree in communications has an observation, some of you get real nervous under the spotlight, and that's interesting to see."
Brian Billick, Ravens head coach
