SI.com lists the 9 best Super Bowl quotes. Why 9? I have no friggin idea. Two Cowboys made the cut.
SB VI: Cowboys RB Duane Thomas
"If it's the ultimate game, how come they're playing it again next year?"
Nice. Cuttin' to the bone of Super Bowl media hype long before it was fashionable. Thomas was a major talent, but he was his own guy and could never settle in Landry's system.
SB XIII: Cowboys LB Thomas "Hollywood" Henderson
(on Steelers QB Terry Bradshaw)
"I didn't say he couldn't play, just that he couldn't spell."
Hollywood in the house. He famously said that Bradshaw was so dumb he couldn't spell cat if you spotted him the 'c' and the 'a'. Bradshaw had no trouble spelling MVP. So after the game, Hollywood made the above quote.
You have to give it up for two Raiders though, for laying these words on us.
(after hearing that Redskins OG Russ Grimm had said that he would run over his own mother to win the Super Bowl)
"I'd run over Russ Grimm's mother to win the Super Bowl, too."
(on why he stayed out all night partying in New Orleans after he forbade his teammates to do so)
"That's why I was out in the streets. To make sure no one else was."
