Beating the Odds

How Football Coaches Think

With football training camps underway, it seems like a good time to check out some of the musings offered by championship football coaches.

“ Failures are expected by losers, ignored by winners.” — Joe Gibbs

“The first step toward creating an improved future is developing the ability to envision it. Our vision is what we become in life.” — Tony Dungy

“Love your players. They are the only ones you have.” — Joe Paterno

“We can all be geniuses because one definition of genius is the infinite capacity for taking pains.” — Knute Rockne

“The superior man blames himself. The inferior man blames others.” — Don Shula

“The only players I hurt with my words are the ones who have an inflated opinion of their ability. I can’t worry about that.” — Bill Parcells

“The thrill isn’t in the winning, it’s in the doing.” — Chuck Noll

“A winner never whines.” — Paul Brown

“Nothing is work unless you’d rather be doing something else.” — George Halas

“Never quit. It is the easiest cop-out in the world. Set a goal and don’t quit until you attain it. When you do attain it, set another goal, and don’t quit until you reach it. Never quit.” — Bear Bryant

And here is a quote about THE football coach:

“When (Vince) Lombardi said ‘Sit down,’ we didn’t look for a chair.” — Forrest Gregg
