  • I don't know what to say, really.

  • Three minutes till the biggest battle of our professional lives all comes down to today.

  • Now either we heal as a team or we're gonna crumble, inch by inch, play by play, 'til we're finished.

  • We're in hell right now, gentlemen, believe me.

  • And, we can stay here get the shit kicked out of us or we can fight our way back into the light.

  • We can climb outta hell one inch at a time.

  • Now, I can't do it for you.

  • I'm too old.

  • I look around.

  • I see these young faces, and I think.

  • I mean, I made every wrong choice a middle-aged man can make.

  • I, uh, I pissed away all my money, believe it or not.

  • I chased off anyone who's ever loved me.

  • And lately, I can't even stand the face I see in the mirror.

  • You know, when you get old in life things get taken from you.

  • I mean that's...part of life.

  • But, you only learn that when you start losing stuff.

  • You find out life's this game of inches.

  • So is football.

  • Because in either game, life or football, the margin for error is so small.

  • I mean one-half a step too late, or too early, and you don't quite make it.

  • One-half second too slow, too fast, you don't quite catch it.

  • The inches we need are everywhere around us.

  • They're in every break of the game, every minute, every second.

  • On this team, we fight for that inch.

  • On this team, we tear ourselves and everyone else around us to pieces for that inch.

  • We claw with our fingernails for that inch, because we know when we add up all those inches that's gonna make the funkin' difference between winning and losing.

  • Between livin' and dying.

  • I'll tell you this in any fight, it's the guy who's willing to die who's gonna win that inch.

  • And I know if I'm gonna have any life anymore, it's because I'm still willin' to fight and die for that inch.

  • Because that's what livin' is!

  • The six inches in front of your face.

  • Now I can't make you do it.

  • You got to look at the guy next to you.

  • Look into his eyes!

  • Now I think you're gonna see a guy who will go that inch with you.

  • You're gonna see a guy who will sacrifice himself for this team because he knows, when it comes down to it, you're gonna do the same for him!

  • That's a team, gentleman!

  • And, either we heal, now, as a team, or we will die as individuals.

  • That's football guys.

  • That's all it is.

  • Now, what are you gonna do?

I don't know what to say, really.
