I believe in this city and its future.
It's just great that we're able to win and give him another crack at that elusive Super Bowl ring.
I went to Charlie and said, 'Give it to me, look it all the way in, follow me as I go through, and I'll do the rest,
I was a spectator out there, ... I can't give you much more than that.
There was a possibility I could have played against New England, but we had a bye week after that, and they wanted to give me another two weeks. It turned out to be the best call.
Give 110 percent. And get me home.
It's a tough one to swallow because you feel you had the game in hand and you couldn't get it done.
I feel so bad for him. He knew this was coming, but you hate to see it happen during Super Bowl week. He's not even going to get to enjoy it.
You ask why have the Pittsburgh Steelers been a physical, smash-mouth type of a team for so long. I think it's because the team takes the identity of its head coach. He looks for tough players. He looks for physical players. And he doesn't settle for anything less.
That was definitely satisfying, ... But at the end of the year, you don't look at that. You look at your health and say, 'Man, I don't know if I can do this again.'
The script right now, if you took it to Hollywood they'd turn it down, saying it couldn't happen.
I think the biggest thrill I've had is seeing guys and girls and kids and grandmothers and grandfathers wearing my 36 jersey. That's an honor for me because you can pick anybody's jersey to wear.
I hope they appreciate me, because we just brought a championship home. One for the Thumb
From a gaming standpoint, I have no interest and don't want any interest. I would hope we get a revitalized city.
Did Lambert hurt his Achilles
I thought it might be my Achilles' tendon, ... And when I got to the bench the trainers right away thought it was my Achilles'. I was worried there for a bit. I hear that's how a lot of Achilles' injuries happen, by just taking a step. I thought it was over.
I guess they thought it was only fitting that on the road back to Detroit for everyone to wear Jerome's Notre Dame jersey.
It's better than I ever thought it would be.
I thought it all added up when Super Bowl 36 was at our doorstep. It was the AFC championship and it was in New Orleans, Super Bowl 36. It didn't happen.
Detroit was always in the back of my mind since we lost in the AFC championship game last year. I thought we could get there and I knew if we didn't turn the ball over we had a great chance.
Of course, it crossed my mind. But that thought was short-lived. Fortunately, it's not (my last play).
I've been a Tigers fan all my time. I try to represent the Tigers every chance I get, so I'm always wearing my Detroit hat. People in Pittsburgh are a little upset about that.
The layoffs will be a part of every major city's redevelopment. There will be bumps in the road, like in any major city. It's unfortunate it came at this time, and dampens the party. But you try to put the best face on that you can.
Here we go, Pittsburgh We set out a long time ago to bring this back home to Pittsburgh. You all believed in us, believed we could get it done. This is ours, but this is also yours. Every one of you.
We set out a long time ago to bring this back home to Pittsburgh. You all believed in us, believed we could get it done. I'm just so thankful for everything that this city has been able to give me. I'm just so happy we were able to give this city the one for the thumb.
