"I tried to sidearm it, like Sandy Koufax used to," Alzado said.
"Low and inside," Ward said, "aimed at my groin."
"We tried to intimidate them, they tried to intimidate us; it's part of the game," Alzado said. "We felt whoever wins this game wins the whole thing."

"They weren't real physical," L.A. Inside Linebacker Matt Millen said. "They were pushers. They get on your shoulder and wait for McNeil (23 carries, 105 yards) to make his cuts behind them. The way he cuts is awesome."
"How about his two fumbles?" he was asked.
"Nobody ever accused us of not hitting," Millen said.
Millen was in the midst of the melee at the end, a mini-brawl that summed up the bitterness between these teams.
