NFL Network To Debut Kevin Greene ‘A Football Life’ On Friday

If you’re not very busy Friday night, make sure you are in front of your television. The sixth season of NFL Network’s Emmy-nominated series A Football Life continues Friday, December 16 at 9:00 PM ET with a profile of Hall of Fame linebacker Kevin Greene.

Provided below are some select quotes from Kevin Greene: A Football Life:

“Kevin is just wired all the time. He’s an intense guy, I mean really intense. He vibrates.” – Ric “Nature Boy” Flair

“Playing in the NFL is predicated on one thing: either you’re kicking a man’s ass or he’s kicking your ass. There is no in between. My will will overcome your will, and you can put that in the bank.” – Kevin Greene

“I hated playing against him. I would’ve loved to play with him. He just was relentless.” – Brett Favre

“The discipline he learned through the military he carried into football.” – Dom Capers

“The thing that set him apart was what he had inside him. He played the game with every molecule in his body. He made himself into what he was.” – Pat Dye

“I think my dream was really just to put on an Auburn uniform, maybe run down on the kickoff team as an Auburn Tiger and just knock the snot out of somebody. Now I’m a Hall of Famer. It’s just so far beyond anything that I could’ve ever dreamed.” – Kevin Greene

“I hope to have a career that’s half as good as his.” – Clay Matthews

“It was hard work; it was being self-made. It was also about making sure you do something and have fun doing it, and doing things that no one else thinks you can do. He took that chip with him and ran with it.” – Bill Cowher
