Obviously we will talk about doing everything we can to make our sport as safe as possible.
There is no future. This is the season. Get to the Super Bowl.
We did it together. Not one individual carried this team.

Taking part in these types of programs is crucial to our youth and crucial to the future of this game.

History is history.

But that happens constantly, and then you get into a game and there are a thousand things going on and you have to make split-second decisions.
Coaches aren`t concentrating enough of the technical part of this game and that could lead to injuries.
We want them to know what it`s like to be a leader, what it`s like to be a team player because those things carry on in everyday life.
