    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (2)

      • Alex Flanagan: Obviously, such a huge year for you last year. Not only winning the Super Bowl, but kind of all that surrounded that. Would anything short of a Super Bowl repeat be a letdown?
        New Orleans Quarterback Drew Brees: Well, once you taste that, (laughs) it's hard to imagine anything else. But I feel like we've got the type of team that can go back and do it again. And there's not many in history that have been able to do that, or have even had the opportunity to do it. When you look at all the teams over the past decade that won a Super Bowl and then didn't even make the playoffs the next year, and here we are, we've shown that we could overcome those odds. Well, I think we've got some more odds to overcome this week as we travel through the playoffs here but we can do it.

      • (on Peyton Manning)
        Bob Costas: Last year, the NFL Films cameras were on you. You said at one point, and I am paraphrasing, 'No matter what we do, he's got an answer for us.' You are famous for mixing things up and confusing opposing quarterbacks but this might be the toughest guy of all to confuse.
        New York Jets Head Coach Rex Ryan: Yeah, there's no question about it. And we had a couple of injuries there with guys playing different spots and we kind of really were limited in what we could call and you know, he knew it. He knew what we had and he totally took advantage of it. This time I don't think it will be as easy for him. But again, I am not going out and saying that I am going to beat Peyton Manning in a chess match. We are going to have to beat him physically and that's what we plan on doing.
