Lambeau "Coach" Fields: I say you can add "Did not make the football team" to your list of woes.

Lambeau "Coach" Fields: Yeah, this is great. Middle of Podunk, nowhere. How am I gonna find an All-American quarterback?
God: If you build it, he will come. If you build it, he will come...

Lambeau "Coach" Fields: My father's not dead. I just spoke with him this morning.
