Item description for Dallas Cowboys: Quips & Quotes by Alan Burton...
Alan Burton, a lifelong fan of the Dallas Cowboys, chronicles the team's forty-five year history in a collection of more than five hundred quips and quotes from players, coaches, owners, broadcasters, and writers.
Organized chronologically, the quotations provide a colorful record of the ups and downs of one of the best-known franchises in professional sports---and "must" reading for the die-hard Dallas Cowboy fan.
A few examples:
Tom Landry on his Flex defense: "It is designed to stop every play on the line of scrimmage. This is the theory, you have to remember, not necessarily the result."
Lineman Jim Boeke on quarterback Don Meredith: "If Meredith had led us over a cliff, I would have been the first one to follow. He was that great a leader."
Linebacker D.D. Lewis on Texas Stadium: "Texas Stadium has a hole in its roof so God can watch his favorite team play."
Caustic commentator Howard Cosell: "The Cowboys are the most overrated, overhyped team in professional football."
Sportswriter Bob St. John on Roger Staubach's clean-cut image: "His idea of breaking training is putting whipped cream on his pie."
A convicted murderer shortly before his execution: "I am thankful to the Dallas Cowboys for giving me a lot of enjoyment the past years."
Lineman Nate Newton: "Remember this---there's the Cowboys, and then there's the rest."
