There are two things in New York, euphoria and disaster.

I was fighting every windmill, especially when I was in college.
The only players I hurt with my words are the ones who have an inflated opinion of their ability. I can’t worry about that.
I’ll call somebody ‘dumb’ or ‘stupid’ if they make a dumb or stupid play. I don’t know any other word for it, and if they don’t like the word, that’s too bad.
The media dwells mostly on negativity.
No matter how much you’ve won, no matter how many games, no matter how many championships, no matter how many Super Bowls, you’re not winning now, so you stink.
If there’s one thing I can’t stand, it’s a quarterback who thinks playing quarterback is just about passing.
If you have fun, fine. It’s not all life and death.
I have a house in Saratoga Springs.
I spent a lot of time with my teams, especially in the East Coast teams, talking about dealing with the elements a lot of time, and a lot of instruction about field position and those kind of things. I like that variable.

If you’ve ever won a championship, then that’s all you’re interested in doing.
Nowadays, if you are afraid of confrontation, you are not going to do very well.
I got more money than I can spend now.
I am demanding.
If the players don’t trust the coach, it is a problem, and vice versa.
When Super Bowl time comes around, I get jealous.
There’s a line, players usually don’t cross it and coaches usually don’t cross it. Every once in a while you get a little temper tantrum on both sides, I certainly have had ’em. I’m not proud of those.
You are what you are.
I’ve been around enough to know what it takes to get a team to reach its potential, and I want players who want to reach their potential.
Well, I’ve had a long standing relationship with Gatorade and they’ve been very, very good to me. And I believe in their products, I really do. I’ve used them for many, many years.
Look, coaching is about human interaction and trying to know your players. Any coach would tell you that. I’m no different.
There is winning and there is misery.
