Ron: I love to see Favre playing his best football, and if his mind his right, he'll probably have a fine season.
Ron (about the Oakland Raiders former head coach): I'm a bit surprised that the Raiders turned to Art Shell to be their new head coach, not because Shell isn't a good head coach - he had success before as the Raiders' head coach - but because he's been away from the game so long and the game has changed a lot in those years.
Ron: The heartbeat of a football team is the quarterback position and I think everyone who has any intelligence about the game understands you must have consistency at that position to be a championship team.
Ron (about the Arena Football League): We are an Ironman game, six players play both sides of the ball, that it would change the game, the basic fundamental design of the game.
Ron: To go to the next level, you have to be special and I look for those special qualities in those players, those qualities that I think will translate to the NFL.
Ron: Positive thinking is the key to success in business, education, pro football, anything that you can mention. I go out there thinking that I'm going to complete every pass.
