on NFL Network
(Airs Sundays at 11:30 PM ET)
"That's been their Achilles' Heel: they've always had to fight back with their young quarterback and that's putting them in a tough spot."
-- Steve Mariucci on the New York Jets, who trailed 24-3 at halftime
*"I applaud Dick LeBeau for what's he's done over the test of time. This is not a one-time thing for Dick LeBeau; he does this every single year. That's why these guys have stability, that's why when Mike Tomlin took over there was no stumble or stutter or slip-up or fall because Dick LeBeau was a mainstay for that defense." *-- Deion Sanders on Pittsburgh defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau
"You talk about some big, emotional games getting here, at the Colts and at the New England Patriots. Those are huge games that drain you emotionally, mentally and physically, and it looked at the start of this game against the Steelers, the Jets didn't have as much zip as the Pittsburgh Steelers."
-- Steve Mariucci on the New York Jets losing to the Pittsburgh Steelers following wins over the Indianapolis Colts and New England Patriots
"This is one of the few organizations that truly emphasize 'team.'"
-- Deion Sanders on the Pittsburgh Steelers
"He's not a pretty quarterback; he's a big, tough, strong guy that knows how to win."
-- Steve Mariucci on Pittsburgh QB Ben Roethlisberger
"He looked as rusty as the Tin Man in 'The Wizard of Oz.'"
-- Rich Eisen on Chicago QB Todd Collins, who replaced Jay Cutler in the third quarter and failed to complete a pass
"Give him credit. He stood up and he fought for this football team."
-- Michael Irvin on Chicago QB Caleb Hanie, who threw for 153 yards and one touchdown
