I think throwing a forward pass and having guys rushing you and hitting you when you’re looking downfield and throwing the ball is the toughest act you have to do. Live a day in his shoes. Type I diabetes is not a daytime thing. It’s not a week thing. It’s not a month thing. It’s a life thing. And it’s every day, and it’s every day for 24 hours. And then people are looking at him, they put a camera on him, and they say they don’t like his demeanor. Demeanor hell!”

"Sunday was a tough day for Bears fans, but even if it didn’t go the way that I wanted, I’m glad to see that one of the greatest rivalries in sports is still there. And we will get you next year. I’m just letting you know. In the spirit of sportsmanship, I wish you ‘good luck’ in the Super Bowl."

victim player Madden claims next?!
