Life in the NFL has been full of ups and downs.
It’s been a roller coaster ride for the past few weeks, with the Colts and Chiefs both going down in a matter of hours to the Jets.
The Super Bowl, the game that has been held annually since 1970, is going to be played in Indianapolis this Sunday, December 6th, 2017.
The games have been marred by controversy.
Last year’s game in Houston featured an alleged racial slur uttered by a New York Giants fan.
A similar incident involving the San Diego Chargers on New Years Eve, when a Chargers fan was arrested after he was allegedly thrown out of the stadium, left many wondering what the future holds for the Super Bowl.
We asked some of the NFL’s biggest stars to tell us some of their best life quotes, and they did so with a sense of humor.
Let’s take a look at the best quotes of the past year.
Jay Cutler: “You guys are always looking for a reason to go out there and play.”

In 2015, he became the first quarterback in NFL history to throw for 4 million yards and run for 3,000 yards in the same season, but was replaced by Colin Kaepernick in 2017.
Cutler has been outspoken about his desire to play in the Superbowl.
He said in 2017 that he is “not really that bothered” about the fact that he has yet to play for the team.
He has been a part of a playoff game three times in his career, and has been part of the championship teams of the last five years.
Cutler said last year that he would be “happy to have a team to get to the Superdome if the opportunity arose.”

Harbaugh has been linked to several other lawsuits, including a case involving an alleged sexual assault and a $1 million claim filed against him by former Ravens running back Ray Rice.
