Here are two quotes that resonated:
"If you're not getting better, I don't care what business you're in, you're a dead man."Tomlin also replied to a reporter's question about the Jets' collective penchant for brassy talk:
"They've been pretty consistent all year about stating their intentions, which is to win a world championship. We've been pretty consistent all year about stating our intentions. So you can see where that's going to lead us. That's two trains on a track."
In other words, and this is strictly our interpretation: "Let 'em talk all they want. So what? I don't care. Let's get it on."
