| "I try to stay in the lines, because that's what adults are supposed to do. But I wish I could go back to the old days when scribbling was allowed."
Damon Washington, Giants rookie RB
On the mentality of being a special-teams player
| "I think Trent should start picking out the names of all the Tampa Bay people who told him he couldn't play and sort of give them the finger."
Tony Siragusa, Ravens DT
On the Ravens QB's return to Tampa
| "When he missed the thing, I marked that spot and as soon as that game was over I went right out there and scooped up a big double handful of grass right on the divot. I stuffed it in a couple of Gatorade cups and still have it in the refrigerator."
Mike Pope, Giants TE coach
On what he did after Bills kicker Scott Norwood's missed game-winning field-goal attempt in Super Bowl XXV

Art Modell, Ravens team owner

Dusty Ziegler, Giants C

| "If he had not been Ray Lewis, if he had not been an All-Pro player, Ray Lewis would have never, ever been implicated ... That's how a lot of people make names for themselves. They took longer time to charge Ted Bundy, who killed 30 people. It took them 24 hours to charge this man."
Shannon Sharpe, Ravens TE
