CBS & NFL Network’s ‘NFL Thursday Night Kickoff’ Notes & Quotes — Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Baltimore Ravens

Thursday_Night_Football_logo-cbs-nflNFL Thursday Night Kickoff aired from inside M&T Bank Stadium tonight at 7:30 PM ET on CBS and NFL Network, with host James Brown and analysts Bill Cowher and Deion Sanders providing pregame analysis leading up to Steelers-Ravens on Thursday Night Football.’

CBS’ James Brown’s Interview with Baltimore Ravens Owner Steve Bisciotti

CBS’ James Brown sat down with Baltimore Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti for an interview on NFL Thursday Night Kickoff:

On what the Baltimore Ravens’ own investigation consisted of and how far did it go:

“Of course we knew that there was other video and our security did the steps that they normally would. They called the casino and they would not release it. They called the Jets and the Giants and said, ‘Do you have any influence, is there any way that you can help us?’ They called back and said no, that they would not release it. The prosecutor said yesterday that would have been illegal. If I had said to Ray [Rice] and his attorney I can’t keep you on this team until I see that tape, I would have seen the tape and I would have sent it to Roger [Goodell] and said you have to look at this tape before you render your decision.”

On the report that the NFL was sent a copy of the tape in April:

“I believe Roger [Goodell] when he says he never saw it. If the allegation is true that it got to the league office, then somebody was negligent in not getting that to Roger. I’ve known Roger for 14 years. He’s dedicated his life to the NFL and as a man I can’t believe that he saw that video and gave a two-game suspension. That’s what makes it hard for me to believe.”

On the public cries for NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to step down:

“I don’t agree with that at all. At all. Because again, this is an accusation from an anonymous source. Could it be trying to deflect blame from the police for being so light on them? Maybe. But why would I take an anonymous person’s word over a man that I’ve known for 14 years?”

On what he has learned through this process:

“If Ray Rice ends up being the reason and our Ravens’ failures and our shortcomings and the league’s shortcomings become a reason to change the legal process and their shortcomings, then if this is a seminal moment for domestic violence and the way we handle it as a society, then that’s not a burden for us to be that poster boy. It’s not. Now I’m embarrassed about it but five years from now if things have changed significantly for the better, I’ll be proud of it. That’s our recovery. What can we do going forward? Pray that this was a moment in time that changed everything.”

Pittsburgh Steelers – Baltimore Ravens Pregame Quotes:

“I can’t believe that the man that I know, the Roger Goodell that I know, would cover that up. He’s been at fault for being too harsh on the players amongst the league. Now you’re saying he’s going to turn a blind eye to this ignorance that we saw on tape? That’s not the man I know.” – Deion Sanders on NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell

“There is no doubt that in the wake of this incident many, many things were mishandled. But there exists right now a moment in time where the focus is on domestic violence that sports can once again serve as a catalyst for social progress and the NFL can lead in that regard. The NFL can foment transformative change, and energy spent in that regard is energy well spent.” – Amy Trask

“John Harbaugh tonight is going to find out who his real leaders are because they need to have some leadership step up given the magnitude and importance of this game.” – Bill Cowher on head coach John Harbaugh and the Baltimore Ravens

“There is no answer for Antonio Brown.” – Deion Sanders on Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown

“I’ve never seen a game with this kind of magnitude – the importance – this early.” – Bill Cowher on the Steelers-Ravens game

“Two years ago, I challenged the NFL community and all men to seriously confront the problem of domestic violence, especially coming on the heels of the murder-suicide of Kansas City Chiefs football player Jovan Belcher and his girlfriend Kasandra Perkins. Yet, here we are again, dealing with the same issue of violence against women. Now let’s be clear: this problem is bigger than football. There has been, appropriately so, intense and widespread outrage following the release of the video showing what happened inside the elevator at the casino. But wouldn’t it be productive if this collective outrage, as my colleagues have said, could be channeled to truly hear and address the long-suffering cries for help by so many women and, as they said, do something about it? Like an ongoing, comprehensive education of men about what healthy, respectful manhood is all about. And it starts with how we view women. Our language is important. For instance, when a guy says, ‘You throw the ball like a girl,’ or ‘You’re a little sissy,’ it reflects an attitude that devalues women. And attitudes will eventually manifest in some fashion. Women have been at the forefront in the domestic violence awareness and prevention arena, and whether Janay Rice considers herself a victim or not, millions of women in this country are. Consider this: according to domestic violence experts, more than three women per day lose their lives at the hands of their partners. That means that since the night of February 15 in Atlantic City, more than 600 women have died. So this is yet another call to men to stand up and take responsibility for their thoughts, their words, their deeds, and as Deion [Sanders] says, to give help or to get help because our silence is deafening and deadly.” – James Brown

Hall of Fame Defensive Tackle “Mean Joe” Greene Kicks Off New Season of NFL Network’s ‘A Football Life’

NFL_Network_2012_Logo‘Joe Greene: A Football Life’ Premieres Friday, September 12 at 9:00 PM ET

“When you think of me as a football player, I would like for people to think that I put it on the line every time. Good or bad, win or lose, I put it on the line.” – Joe Greene

“There is nobody else out there that I would put ahead of Joe Greene. By far the best Steeler of all time.” – Jack Ham

As a Pro Football Hall of Fame defensive tackle, four-time Super Bowl champion, 10-time Pro Bowler and two-time Defensive Player of the Year, Joe Greene earned the nickname “Mean Joe” and established himself as one of the most-feared defenders in NFL history. Yet off the field, the husband, father of three and grandfather of seven goes by the name of “Papa Joe” and bears little resemblance to the 13-year NFL veteran.

The fourth season of the three-time Emmy-nominated series A Football Life kicks off Friday, September 12 at 9:00 PM ET on NFL Network with a profile of “Mean Joe” Greene. The one-hour, NFL Films-produced documentary features sitdown interviews with Greene and those who know him well, including former Hall of Fame teammates Franco Harris, Lynn Swann and Jack Ham, Steelers Chairman Dan Rooney, and more.

Among the topics discussed in the documentary are:

  • Presenting Steelers Chairman Dan Rooney for enshrinement into the Pro Football Hall of Fame and having his jersey retired by the Steelers
  • Nearly quitting after a late-season loss during the 1974-75 season
  • Leading the Steelers to four Super Bowl championships as a player and contributing to two Super Bowl titles as a front office executive
  • The dominant “Steel Curtain” defense and his relationship with the other members of the ‘Front Four’ – L.C. Greenwood, Dwight White and Ernie Holmes
  • The iconic Coca-Cola commercial and the impact it had on Greene’s public perception
  • Joe’s relationship with his family

Emmy-nominated actor from CBS’ The Good Wife, Josh Charles, narrates.

Joe Greene: A Football Life includes interviews with the following people and more:

Joe Greene

Agnes Greene – Joe’s wife

Dan Rooney – Steelers Chairman

Art Rooney II – Steelers President

Franco Harris – Hall of Fame running back and Steelers teammate

Lynn Swann – Hall of Fame wide receiver and Steelers teammate

Jack Ham – Hall of Fame linebacker and Steelers teammate

Rocky Bleier – Steelers teammate

Andy Russell – Steelers teammate

Jon Kolb – Steelers teammate

John Brown – Steelers teammate

Kevin Colbert – Steelers general manager

Woody Widenhofer – Former Steelers defensive coordinator/linebackers coach

Joe Gordon – Former Steelers PR Director

Penny Hawkey – Former Coca-Cola creative director

Tom Okon – Former child actor who appeared in Coca-Cola commercial with Joe Greene

Charles Myers – Childhood friend

Chuck Beatty – North Texas State teammate

Provided below are some select quotes from Joe Greene: A Football Life:

“When you think of me as a football player, I would like for people to think that I put it on the line every time. Good or bad, win or lose, I put it on the line.” – Joe Greene

“I just remember walking out on the deck of this aircraft carrier, and there were airplanes and there was Joe Greene. And they were both impressive. It was just sort of a presence that was there and still is today.” – Jon Kolb

“There is nobody else out there that I would put ahead of Joe Greene. By far the best Steeler of all time.” – Jack Ham

“He was special. He did signify this team. He meant everything; the way he performed, the way he carried himself on and off the field. He was it. He was the guy.” – Dan Rooney

“Joe stands as the beginning of reform and change for a football team and for a city. When Joe came, the Steelers were bad, they didn’t look like they were going to get better, but Joe had the blue-collar work ethic.” – Lynn Swann

“I was depressed. I was just depressed. I did not want to be a Pittsburgh Steeler because I knew of the record.” – Joe Greene on being drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers

“When I look back and I think about it, it was being disruptive and belligerent. I don’t know how many other teams would have tolerated my antics.” – Joe Greene

“I was quitting…As I was taking those steps I was saying, ‘Somebody please stop me.’ Lionel Taylor, our receivers coach, said, ‘Hold up a minute,’ and he sat down in the car and we talked. I don’t know what we talked about but I was glad we talked because I went back. And that’s when it started.” – Joe Greene

“It brought Pittsburgh into the picture of football teams in the National Football League that, ‘OK, you have to deal with us now.’” – Joe Greene on the victory in Super Bowl IX

“You look up to that guy and you don’t want to let him down. With Joe Greene, I found that leadership really does matter.” – Jack Ham

“It changed our lives a lot. It changed Joe’s personality a lot. Because so many kids were looking up to him, he decided he really wanted to be a role model for the kids.” – Agnes Greene on the Coca-Cola commercial

This season, A Football Life airs Friday at 9:00 PM ET on NFL Network. Below is the broadcast schedule for the September and October episodes:

Quotes From Week 1 Editions of NFL Network’s ‘NFL GameDay Highlights’ & ‘NFL GameDay Final’

nfl-gameday-finalQuotes From NFL GameDay Highlights & NFL GameDay Final

“This defense, it seems as though they picked up right where they left off last season, and that’s atrocious.” – Deion Sanders on the Dallas Cowboys defense after giving up 28 points to the San Francisco 49ers at home

“They have to get the ball to DeMarco Murray a little bit more. They have to try and control the tempo. That’s what they need to do going forward. And maybe they can hold onto the ball and outscore people because they’re certainly not stopping them.” – LaDainian Tomlinson on the Dallas Cowboys’ game plan

“He’s already one of the premier safeties in the league. He has return ability as well and he’s very physical. Complete safety.” – Michael Irvin on San Francisco 49ers safety Eric Reid

“He’s one of the best to ever play on opening day.” – Michael Irvin on San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Anquan Boldin who had eight receptions for 99 yards against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday

“Matt Ryan played the game of his life in order to beat Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints.” – Marshall Faulk on Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan, who threw for 448 yards and three touchdowns against the New Orleans Saints

“They’re a different team with Julio Jones on the field.” – Michael Irvin on Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones who had seven receptions for 116 yards

“Aqib Talib paid dividends. A great free agent pick up. He’s one of the premier corners in the league.” – Deion Sanders on Broncos defensive back Aqib Talib

“They have such an explosive offense. They always feel like they’re in the game. They did not panic and they had a chance to come back and get that win.” – Michael Irvin on the Philadelphia Eagles coming back to beat the Jacksonville Jaguars

“The vision, the patience, the speed, the power – everything. He possesses everything.” – LaDainian Tomlinson on Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell

“People there’s a new sheriff in town. One of the great running backs in line of Pittsburgh Steelers [and] his name is Le’Veon Bell. He’s on his way people.” – LaDainian Tomlinson on Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell, who rushed for 109 yards and caught six passes for 88 yards against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday

“Le’Veon Bell, he brings a dimension to this offense that they’ve been missing for a while.” – Marshall Faulk on Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell

“[Brian] Hoyer, he’s not giving that job up anytime soon. He kept fighting back. That was a good performance.” – Steve Mariucci on Cleveland Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer who threw for 230 yards, one touchdown and no turnovers

“This dude right here is really showing he’s one of the better playmakers in this league.” – Michael Irvin on Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown after catching five passes for 116 yards and a touchdown

“I love him, he is a good corner, but he has to get back to the old Revis or they are going to keep victimizing him. They targeted him several times today. He played a fairly good game but not a great game, and I expect a little more. I know I’m going to get more because he has to get that attitude back. They brought him over there to take them to the next level, not to be an average corner. He’s better than that.”– Deion Sanders on New England Patriots cornerback Darrelle Revis

“We didn’t expect this defense to play like that.” – LaDainian Tomlinson on the New England Patriots after giving up 30 points to the Miami Dolphins

“I still believe this guy was the steal of the draft.” – Michael Irvin on Carolina Panthers wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin who had six receptions for 92 yards and a touchdown against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers

“How many wide receivers do you know that can play at running back as well?” – LaDainian Tomlinson on Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson who 102 rushing yards and a touchdown to 26 receiving yards

“According to the sources I’m speaking with, including many in the 49ers locker room, Jim Harbaugh may already be losing the players. There are some serious doubts about whether Harbaugh is actually ‘all-in’ like he professes.” – Ian Rapoport on San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh

Quotes from NFL GameDay First

Every Sunday morning at 7:00 AM ET, NFL Network is first on the field with NFL GameDay First. Host Melissa Stark, co-host/analyst Sterling Sharpe, and analysts Shaun O’Hara and Michael Robinson provide the first analysis of the day’s games, while NFL Network reporters stationed across the league report from stadiums with the first on-location reports of the day.

“For the first time in Rex Ryan’s career as a head coach, his offense is now better than his defense.” – Sterling Sharpe on the New York Jets

“What stood out most to me was how physical this team was. We had a motto last year on our offense. It was to play on a level that the opposition wasn’t willing to go, therefore incapable of matching. That’s what I saw Thursday.” – Michael Robinson on the Seattle Seahawks’ 36-16 victory over the Green Bay Packers

“We actually lost the opening game to the Cardinals and on the plane ride back, Russell [Wilson] could hear the players; everybody was saying, ‘We need Matt Flynn in there, we need a more experienced quarterback.’ But he didn’t let it deter him from what he wanted to do. He still wants to be one of the best quarterbacks of all time.” – Michael Robinson on playing with Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson when he was a rookie

“The one team that can even challenge the Seahawks is the New England Patriots. That’s because of their defense and their quarterback. Tom Brady, the plays that he makes with receivers – we don’t even know their names half the time – puts him in a category to be able to challenge the Seattle Seahawks.” – Michael Robinson on the Seattle Seahawks’ greatest opponents

“This defense is too good. It’s Super Bowl or bust for Tom Brady. I expect them to be in the Super Bowl this year.” – Michael Robinson on the New England Patriots

“A whole lot of things remind me of Troy Aikman…He never lets what he did become bigger than who he is. But on game day, when a game is on the line, there is a hyper focus that both these guys reach to bring the best out of everyone around them.” – Michael Irvin on New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady

“The Texans think that Jadeveon Clowney is ready for this moment. They see a more complete player than a lot of other people anticipated going into the 2014 season. In fact, talking to people within the organization, they think that he is farther along as a run defender right now than he is as a pass rusher.” – Albert Breer on number one overall pick Houston Texans linebacker Jadeveon Clowney

“I am concerned for [Robert Griffin III] because not only did he not play great in the preseason, he took a ton of hits. We have been telling RG3 since he came to the NFL: protect yourself; when you get out of the pocket, go down, slide, throw the ball away. I am concerned. I don’t think he is going to finish the season. I don’t think he will play 16 games.” – Shaun O’Hara on Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III

 

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady with NFL Network’s Andrea Kremer

Today on NFL GameDay Morning, NFL Network’s Andrea Kremer sat down with New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady to discuss his future, winning his third Super Bowl championship 10 years ago, his thoughts entering his 15th season and more.

On the self-talk going on in his head as he gets ready to start his 15th season:

“A lot of it is really, ‘God Tom, you’re not very good, you have to work harder at this; what are you doing, that was a bad play.’ I think that’s a lot of motivation for me is to always feel like I have to prove it to myself first. Every day in practice I’m trying to make the right throws, the right reads, the right footwork, the right emotional level because to sustain that for four or five months over the course of the season is a tough thing to do. But you have to do it; you have to find the balance. I wouldn’t say it’s an easy thing to do but if you want to play this position at a high level, you have to commit to those things.”

On if it feels like it’s been 10 years since the Patriots last won the Super Bowl:

“Yeah, it does feel like a long time. I think to win that last game of the year, that’s what we’re all trying to be able to do at some point. You don’t play this game to come in second place. I’m proud of the fact that we are in it and we got a chance every year, but I don’t think anyone is going to be satisfied around here until we close the deal.”

On how Tom Brady the quarterback who won three Super Bowls in his first five seasons compares to Tom Brady the quarterback who has not won a Super Bowl in the last 10 years:

“What I realize now is hard it is to win that Super Bowl. Obviously a lot of things have to go right, a lot of guys have to be playing really well at the right time, and we’ve certainly had our opportunities. We’ve been really close on two occasions; we’ve been to plenty of AFC Championship Games and didn’t have an opportunity to really close it out. You start the year, you’re as hopeful as anybody and I think we’re obviously very hopeful this year. But I think my beliefs and what I feel like I want to bring to the team is what I’ve always brought: try to be as consistent, dependable a player as I could be.”

On how will he know when it’s time to walk away from playing football:

“I think if I feel like I can’t play at the level that I expect [of] myself, then I’m not going to play anymore. I want to be a great asset to a team; I want to bring a lot of value to a team that I’m playing for. And if that team doesn’t feel like I’m a value to them, then maybe there is another team out there that may see that.”

On if he would play for another team:

“I’ve been very privileged to play for this team, so my focus is on this year. There comes a time for a lot of people. Michael Jordan played for the Washington Wizards – who would have ever imagined that? Joe Montana played for the Chiefs. Randy Moss, one of the great players ever, played for [five] teams.”

On if there is a part of him that understands he may get cut by the Patriots one day:

“Absolutely. Absolutely. This is the NFL. It’s happened to everybody so why would I not think that would happen to me. Hopefully a team could value what I bring to it and then you try to go out there for as long as you can and do it. But if a team doesn’t see that, the NFL is supply and demand. That’s what it’s always been.”

On how he would finish this sentence – “Without football, my life is…”:

“Boring [laughing]. It’s kind of a year-round thing for me. I think about it when I wake up in the morning, before I go to bed at night. A lot of the decisions over the course of the day are football-focused. If you want to try to continue to play football for a long time, which I certainly want to do, you have to do all of the right things.”

Quotes from NFL GameDay Morning

NFL GameDay Morning is the most comprehensive pregame show on Sunday morning, airing at 9:00 AM ET for four hours on NFL Network and taking viewers straight up to kickoff. Host Rich Eisen joins analysts Steve Mariucci, Marshall Faulk, Kurt Warner, Warren Sapp and Michael Irvin to bring fans the latest news, injury reports, pregame analysis and game previews. Additionally, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport provides the latest inside information from around the league. This week, NFL Network analyst Willie McGinest joined the show from Sun Life Stadium to preview Patriots-Dolphins.

“[Robert Griffin III] makes the statement today that this year will not be like last…The definition of an athlete I always say is one who meets and beats all challenges. Today he will meet it and he will beat it because he’s healthy.” – Michael Irvin on Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III

“The most dangerous thing in the National Football League is a managing playmaker, which is what Russell Wilson is and which is what [Robert Griffin III] is trying to learn how to do. And when he does learn that is when his career and everything will take off…He has to go from always believing his talent and gift can win a play for him, to understanding when to use that talent and gift.” – Michael Irvin on Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III and Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson

“This might be the best defense ever.” – Steve Mariucci on the Seattle Seahawks defense

“What we’ve learned is that you can’t beat this defense with just a great quarterback. I think that’s what we’ve seen in these last two games [Super Bowl XLVIII and Week 1].” – Kurt Warner on the Seattle Seahawks defense

“By Week 5 or 6, he may take over the starting position from Ben Tate because he can hit the homerun ball better than anybody else that they have.” – Marshall Faulk on Cleveland Browns rookie running back Terrance West

“Geno [Smith] had better playmakers in college than what he has right now.” – Marshall Faulk on New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith

“You have to step up and prove to me that you are a [number] one [wide receiver]. I didn’t know if you were the one, the two or the three in Denver. You have to be the one in this offense.” – Marshall Faulk on New York Jets wide receiver Eric Decker

“That window is wide open. They still have opportunities to win, they’re always in the playoffs and are going to be in the playoffs. And for the window to shut, another quarterback has to shut that window.” – Marshall Faulk on if the window of opportunity to win another Super Bowl is closing for quarterbacks Peyton Manning, Tom Brady and Drew Brees

 

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport

On San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh:

“According to the sources I’m speaking with, including many in the 49ers locker room, Jim Harbaugh may already be losing the players. There are some serious doubts about whether Harbaugh is actually ‘all-in’ like he professes. He says he is about the team, the team, the team; the players now wonder is that actually the case. They have dealt with a lot over the last couple of years; some of the way he’s treated them, some lack of respect and all because they are winning, they are fine with it. But some of the players wonder if they lose, will it all spiral out of control? Let me give you an example of this. Harbaugh took the team across the country to spend several days in Baltimore to practice with his brother. Is that about the team, or is that about him? His contract status is in doubt, did not agree to an extension with the 49ers. He does have two years left on his deal but it is worth asking: is this the last year for Jim Harbaugh in San Francisco?”

On a contract extension for Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant:

“According to sources on both sides of this, this did not get done. Dez Bryant does not have the contract extension he wanted so he is officially in a contract year. This is why: Dez Bryant set a self-imposed deadline. He wanted to have a deal before the first game or he would not negotiate during the season. That seems to be the case; no deal is expected. Dez Bryant is going to play it out. He may make the Cowboys really pay. The discussion is, is Dez Bryant a top-five receiver? He has said I’ve proven that; thus far they have not given him the guaranteed money – the security – that he believes he deserves going forward.”

On the status of a new drug policy:

“There is going to be no deal today. That much we know, mainly because first of all there is no agreement but also any deal would have to be voted on by the 32 player reps for the union. Most of those guys are busy today. So the union and the NFL both want to strike a deal. They are both ready to do a deal if they can come to an agreement. One potential sticking point is the NFL wants automatic suspension or automatic discipline for DUIs; the NFLPA does not want to give up due process. As far as what the new drug policy may look like: higher thresholds for marijuana suspensions which may be good news for Josh Gordon, and then have amphetamine use be considered a substances of abuse rather than a PED which could mean no suspension for Wes Welker. All of these will be judged individually going forward.”

On if there is a possibility that players currently suspended now could have their suspensions lifted with a new drug policy:

“It is possible. If a deal is struck this week we may see Wes Welker, Orlando Scandrick, maybe Josh Gordon, although he may get a reduced suspension rather than do away with it. We may see them next week.”

On Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton:

“I’m told the Panthers are leaning against playing Cam Newton today. No firm decision; Ron Rivera still wants to take it up as close to game time as he possibly can, but they may hold him out. He’s been dealing with a rib issue this week; he’s been sore, he’s had trouble getting loose several days. He wants to play, thinks he can play, players think he can play but Ron Rivera is thinking of the next 15 weeks as opposed to just today.”

On the Oakland Raiders’ decision to start rookie quarterback Derek Carr over Matt Schaub:

“The decision was made publically by the Oakland Raiders when they informed players that Derek Carr would be their starter on Monday. The thought was that the Raiders wanted to see Matt Schaub throw, see how his sore elbow held up before they made a decision. But I am actually told by Raiders sources this decision was made Saturday night – two days before they were even set to see Matt Schaub throw at all. So what that means to me is that they wanted to go with Derek Carr. They essentially used Matt Schaub’s elbow as cover. They believe that Carr is their future. When I talked to a fellow general manger in the NFL, he said this is their guy, this is exactly who they thought he was when they drafted him. The Raiders expect huge things from Derek Carr.”

On the Cleveland Browns’ plans for rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel:

“There is a Manziel package; it has been practiced this week, it is ready. The Browns are willing to use it if they believe it is necessary…He wouldn’t come in for a series; it wouldn’t be like what Tim Tebow and the Jets did. He might just run in for a play or two; 2-and-5 come in, shake things up a little bit and then go back out. That is something the Browns know the Steelers struggled this week preparing for, had to spend some time on. But one thing the Browns are very cognizant of, they know this Brian Hoyer’s team. They don’t want to put any doubt in his mind. So if the Browns are up, it’s a good game – you may see Manziel. If they are losing by a lot, you are not going to see Manziel. They don’t want to make it seem like they’re taking it away from Brian Hoyer.”

America’s Game: 2013 Seattle Seahawks

On Wednesday, September 3 at 8:00 PM ET, the Emmy-winning series America’s Game profiles the Super Bowl XLVIII champion Seattle Seahawks. America’s Game: 2013 Seattle Seahawks features quarterback Russell Wilson, Pro Bowl cornerback Richard Sherman and head coach Pete Carroll recounting the Seahawks’ run to the franchise’s first Super Bowl title in their own words. Actor and native of Mount Vernon, WA, Jim Caviezel lends his voice to this year’s edition.

Below are select quotes from America’s Game: 2013 Seattle Seahawks:

  • “We should have won that game…Myself and Earl Thomas sat there in the locker room for about three hours after that game and just [said], ‘We’ll never lose again in the playoffs, we’ll punish whoever gets in our way.’” – Richard Sherman on the playoff loss to the Atlanta Falcons the previous season
  • “We were the guys that were the underdogs. People said we weren’t smart enough or couldn’t make the plays when we needed to.” – Russell Wilson on the Seahawks’ roster
  • “That’s really the philosophy: we’re in a relentless pursuit of finding the competitive edge in everything we do. We’re either competing or we’re not.” – Pete Carroll on the Seahawks’ philosophy
  • “He thought that was going to be a touchdown too. That would have been his third touchdown in three years against the Seattle Seahawks…But it was his seventh interception against the Seattle Seahawks. And once again, at the end of the game trying to throw a fade to [Michael] Crabtree, it’s like two years in a row your season ends the same way. You would think he would learn.” – Sherman on San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s final throw of the NFC Championship Game

 

America’s Game,an Emmy Award-winning series, delves deep into the story behind the making of Super Bowl champions. Each episode is a 60-minute documentary featuring key members of the winning team telling behind-the-scenes accounts from their championship season. With the signature NFL Films footage, combined with news clips and photos, highlights from team radio broadcasts, inside looks from team meeting rooms, sideline audio and other exclusive features, America’s Game provides an epic and intimate portrait of championship teams.
