Another Super Bowl edition of “They said what?” sports quote game


We’re counting down to the Super Bowl and Seesaw Sports is celebrating with “They said what?” sports quote game. All NFL, all football, and all-time great, these sports quotes were made for pigskin.

Seesaw Sports, where Dan Salem and Todd Salem throw down on the NFL, MLB, NBA and more. Two brothers from New York yell, scream and debate sports.


The rules at Seesaw Sports are as follows: Player 1 presents player 2 with a sports quote.

– The quote can be about sports
– Can be said by a famous sportsman
Can be both about sports and said by a famous sportsman, but NEVER neither one

The quote is given, along with three hints as to who said it. Player two then responds with their guess. A correct answer is worth one point for player two. An incorrect guess is worth one point for player one.

After one quote, Dan is ahead 1 point to Todd’s 0 points. Oh yeah!
Now for another quote to end round one. “They said what?”



Nailed it! Now for my Super Bowl sports quote follow up. Its go time.

I removed the final sentence from the initial quote, so as to not give too much away. No need to give extra hints.

“I thought I came back to win a Super Bowl. But I found out in the middle of last season that’s not what I came back for. I came back for these men inside the locker room.”


Hint one: He is a two-time Super Bowl champion.



Hint two: He played for five different NFL teams, having retired twice.

Hint three: He is a member of the College Football and Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Just reading the quote, it sounded like some teamwork, chemistry garbage that Ray Lewis would say. He did win two Super Bowls but doesn’t fit the other hints.

Then I thought it could be Brett Favre. He retired a couple of times, played for a bunch of teams at the end and won the big one. But I don’t think he’s in either Hall of Fame at this point.

So many players come to mind who just barely miss all the outlined criteria. In the end, my guess is going to be Marcus Allen. I’m not sure if he checks every box here, but it’s close. And, more importantly, I don’t know for sure that he doesn’t! When lacking a definitive answer, a feasible answer is all one can go on.



A completely feasible answer, but wrong. The man who defined the high step uttered those words. Deion Sanders is the answer. Did you know he had a nine year baseball career as well?

The remainder of the quote referenced his “persona” and showtime style image. You had enough hints, but not enough to win the point.

Deion Sanders


Score after 1 round:
Todd – 0 points
Dan – 2 points
