Week 17 (Jan. 2, 2011) - Quotable from NFL GameDay Final on NFL Network
(Airs Sundays at 11:30 p.m. ET)
"They're the scariest team right now in the playoffs."
"They have the ability to frustrate the Philadelphia Eagles on the front end in getting to Vick, and the talent on the back end to guard [Philadelphia's wide receivers]."
"The sad thing about being 7-9, some coaches can actually get fired for this. But the [Seahawks] are going to the playoffs."
"It just shows a young team that was in a playoff atmosphere and they were not ready."
"They made some young mistakes on the football field and made some young mistakes from the coaching staff."
"[Jay] Cutler went back to some of his old ways in this game."
"This guy always finds his way around the ball. He prepares, he studies, he's 100 percent intrigued with this game."
"Mark] Sanchez, as good as he is, has ups and downs like all young quarterbacks; he will have down moments in a playoff game and you can't have that when you have [Peyton Manning on the other side. Sanchez has to come prepared to play."
"We have the best game in professional sports. I like it the way it is, let's leave it the way it is. It works."
-- Deion Sanders on the arguments for playoff re-seeding
"It's tough when you have a lot of young players playing, but it's even tougher when you have your quarterback being one of those young players in Josh Freeman. He has this team prepared to make great runs for the next few years."
"From me and I know from a lot of us, to Brett: thanks for two decades of great football. You have given everything you had for your team, your teammates, your fans and for the sport, and this league will miss you dearly."
-- Steve Mariucci on Brett Favre retiring after 20 years
