Some classic Herm Edwards in there…

“It’s your job – you don’t have to go to class anymore – it’s your job.”

“I got one tackle left in me.”

Unfortunately it’s not the entire speech – and I couldn’t find the rest of it. Maybe that’s a good thing, because after listening to Herm – I’m ready for some football!!

There were some additional great quotes mentioned on SportsCenter:

On how to conduct themselves: “Sign your contract… one car, one house, one piece of jewelry. You get one girlfriend or one wife – not both.”

On football players’ jewelry: “I’ve seen those big old watches… you should never be late.”

Classic stuff.
