quotes with the word "pads"
You beat a four-year-old with a tree branch . . . Here's a tip for any pro football players out there, curious as to whether or not they may be child abusers: You can't do something to a four-year-old that you are not allowed to do to a 300 pound lineman in a helmet and pads.
about Adrian Peterson abuse case
If a politician doesn't wanna get beat up, he shouldn't run for office. If a football player doesn't want to get tackled or want the risk of an a occasional clip he shouldn't put the pads on.
I'm not doing it . . . I feel like I was drafted to play football, not carry another player's pads.
On rookie tradition of carrying other's pads
I told Roy this ... he could have walked in with his tights on. I would have took his shoulder pads, his pants, his helmet, his socks, his shoes. I would have took everything. But you know what, that's not even an issue.
on carrying Roy Williams shoulder pads
We're fine. It's not even a situation. . . Me and Roy is great. Not only me and Roy, but the whole team. Ya'll trying to turn us against each other.
on carrying Roy Williams' shoulder pads
I don't think people would strike with the head as much . . . You would learn to strike with the shoulder pads if you didn't have a helmet on your head.
Running around that edge and having that contact, I missed that . . . I mean, I had been pushing sleds and I had been doing things in my rehab process to test it against weight and against contact. But just feels good to have the pads on and out there playing football instead of doing rehab.
He is tough . . . Plays hard, hungry. We put him in some situations on special teams so we could see how he would function within that realm. He performed well. Now, one game does not do it. Consistency is the key. That's the value of this game coming up.
Jim Caldwell (American football)
Hopefully Carr will be ready to practice tomorrow and be ready to go . . . He had a good week getting his feet under him last week, so we anticipate him being in pads and practicing fully. Obviously we'll monitor him as we go and make sure he's able to handle the work.
Our whole receiver crew I think has done an excellent job and had a great offseason. They've kept it going in camp with the pads on . . . Those guys come out and battle every single day. They get a lot of tough looks; they come out prepared and make a lot of plays.
There's no doubt in my mind . . . I'm just going to worry about things that I can control. I'm going to continue to come in and get as much treatment as possible so my body will be 100 percent.
You're in Indiana, a fucking juggernaut of a badass state . . . I fucking love Indiana; Purdue is one of the greatest launching pads in the world. Figure out what you love to do and find a way to get paid for it.
I don't present a song to the band until I have a basic rhythmic feel for it, the melody as I imagine it to be sung, and the chord changes . . . The thing that's interesting about 'Foolish Heart' is it doesn't have any pads in it. Nobody's playing chords in the song. Everybody's playing lines, and the lines hook up and tell you all you need to know about the harmonic content of the song. You don't wonder where it's going. It's so beautifully designed, it's like a clock. It's really lovely. It surprised me it came out so interesting and so perfect and so totally its own personality. That's the Grateful Dead in action, really.
I'm going to have to find some of those Hakeem knee pads . . . We actually did talk about that at the end of the season, me wearing some knee pads. It looks like I'm going to have to do it. Taking those bumps now - at 21 (years old), I could recover at halftime. But now, I've got some of that kryptonite juice stuck in my knees, so I have to make sure I get that out.
Yeah, and I think we can give a little extra contact when we have the pads on for Marcus . . . Pass protection, sled, hitting sleds and maybe thudding up a little bit extra outside of the normal practice drills.
We like what we have in the player . . . He carries his pads well.
We talk with our pads . . . That's the way good programs do it. We don't need to go the other way. We need to understand there are things that go along with what we're given.
Everything is ready to go, and I can just take it all in and enjoy myself leading up to the game . . . Maybe catch some last-minute film or whatever and about 11:30 getting ready, put the pads on, final meetings and motivational whatever tactics and final tape jobs.
If you have a quality scoring chance, you try and hit your spot. Sometimes you do, and sometimes you don't. When you do it's a goal. I don't try and aim for the pads when I shoot and score.
I can't say I've seen too many bigger or stronger guys on a pair of skis. Guys like Dave are usually wearing shoulder pads and a helmet tackling other guys with shoulder pads and helmets.
