You can die at any moment doing anything. I mean, so why not do what you love to do. If I die on game day, have a drink. Celebrate.
Trust brings a higher level of communication and a higher level of commitment and accountability.
I never want to be a father figure to my quarterbacks. I've got my own kids. I want to be the cool uncle you'd like have a drink with.
I work hard, but I also play hard. Everyone needs balance in life.
I think Chris Godwin is going to be close to a 100-catch guy, especially because I think he can play in the slot.
You never know about team speed until you get out there. You don't know who is a slow learner. A kid may not be very bright or he may be real bright but he doesn't know football. You've got to find out all those nuances and how they learn.
You learn a lot about human nature in a bar.
I was allergic to milk as a child. My older brother would always get a big glass and drink it in front of me all the time.
There's not one moment from my journey that I'd want to change. Everything happens for a reason.
I loved the three years I had in Cleveland, especially that playoff run with Timmy Couch and Kelly Holcomb. And obviously those great years in Pittsburgh.
I got to know Peyton Manning when he was a high school junior and I was the offensive coordinator at Mississippi State.
I've always loved Cleveland.
At 30 I thought I knew everything, and 30 years later I didn't know anything.
When you get in coaching, you realize there are only two kinds of coaches - those that are fired and those who are going to get fired.
I felt like Cleveland deserved a winner. They have the most loyal fans in the world. I just thought it was a goal of mine. Every time that job came open I tried to get it.
I think all the great ones have it. They just have a will they can put on their teammates. Refuse to lose mentality. When you step in the huddle with any of those guys, you're so calm that he knows what the heck he's doing and he can get the job done.
When I coached guys that I knew would be good coaches, I kind of push them.
And opportunity doesn't always come. I thought I should have had a head-coaching opportunity a long time ago. Called plays in the Super Bowl. Won the game. No phone calls.
We have to build that African-American offensive coordinator/quarterback coach that is going to be a head coach. I think that's our job as head coaches - to find those guys.
The most important relationship a head coach has on his team isn't with the other coaches, the owner or the general manager. It's with the quarterback. He's the one who runs the show on the field; He's the ultimate extension of his coach. If there isn't a high level of mutual trust between them, both coach and quarterback will be doomed.
