Next, a personal favorite of mine, regarding a certain team we love to hate:
“I never came here to kiss Bill Belichick‘s rings. I came here to win, let’s put it that way. … I’m certainly not intimidated by New England or anybody else.”
How can a list of Rex quotes go without this one:
“…Now let’s go eat a g–d— snack!”
An unfortunate one, right before the Christmas Eve battle against the Giants last year:
“There’s no way I’m going to be second fiddle. If we were playing the New York Yankees, I don’t want to be second fiddle to them. This is the same type of deal. I want to be the best team in football, not just the best team in this city. But we’ll start by being the best team in this city.”
And recently, on how he feels about the defense going into 2012:
“I don’t want to put any undue expectations on our team … So I would expect that we’d lead the league.”
Finally, a quote from Rex regarding toughness, that involves “fur”?
“If you take a swipe at one of ours, we’ll take two swipes at one of yours. We’re going to turn the heat up, we’re going to let the fur fly, and let’s see what happens.”
Whether you love him or hate him, he sure is fun, isn’t he? Thought it might be a nice trip down memory lane with our coach on this Tuesday morning. Hope you enjoyed it.
