    Okay, now that we're in the official NFL summer doldrums, how about a lighter topic of discussion most everyone can agree upon? If you were to choose your absolutely #1 favorite Lombardi quote and it was the only piece of wisdom you could pass on to posterity, what would yours be? Mine?

    "Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence." - Vincent Thomas Lombardi

    I have it on my locker at work and it is how try to live my life.

    Also (which may be more interesting and something we can all learn something new from) what is your favorite quote by other NFL coaches, if you have one?

    This one has always stuck with me:

    "If God had wanted man to play soccer, he wouldn't have given us arms." - Mike Ditka

    "It's not whether you get knocked down, it's whether you get up." - Lombardi

    I used to have that on a plaque somewhere. Definitely a life motto as well. Life is all about getting knocked down, and the successful folks get up quicker than the next person.
