– Deion Sanders on Vikings QB Brett Favre’s game-winning touchdown pass vs. 49ers
“All Eli does is win.”

– Deion Sanders on the San Francisco 49ers
“He’s finally living up to the expectations.”
– Deion Sanders on 49ers TE Vernon Davis
“When he plays, that offense moves.”
– Deion Sanders on Patriots WR Wes Welker, who has missed the past two games with injury
“Wes Welker. He’s the guy with the real ‘C’ on his chest because he’s the leader. And when he’s out, it just doesn’t click.”
– Deion Sanders on Patriots WR Wes Welker
“That’s a good 1-2 punch at the running back spot.”
– Steve Mariucci on Broncos RBs Correll Buckhalter and Knowshon Moreno
“This young quarterback is exciting.”
