    CORNERBACK CHRIS MCALISTER, ON THE IMPACT SAFETY ROD WOODSON HAS HAD ON HIS CAREER: "Rod is like a father. He's been there, he's played this position. What Rod tells me, I take it like it's my father."

    WOODSON, ON THE BIGGEST DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THIS SUPER BOWL AND HIS FIRST (WITH PITTSBURGH IN 1996): "I'm healthy. I get to play my game this time."

    TIGHT END SHANNON SHARPE, ON THE RAVENS' OFFENSIVE WOES EARLY IN THE SEASON: "I looked back at the tape and realized I was part of the problem."

    SAFETY COREY HARRIS, ON WHAT DEFENSIVE TACKLE TONY SIRAGUSA IS LIKE WHEN HE'S "NOT ON STAGE": "He's always on stage."

    SHARPE, ON THE TELEVISION COMMERCIAL IN WHICH HE TRASH-TALKS WITH THE GIANTS' JASON SEHORN: "I think the thing that made that commercial so great is that they let me be me."

    DILFER, ON WHETHER HE HAS BEEN REMINISCING AND TAKING IN THE ATMOSPHERE: "I did allow myself about three minutes yesterday (after the team photo shoot at Raymond James Stadium). I said, 'I'm going to take this in for a second.' ... It was like one of those movies where you have flashbacks, most of them good."

    MCALISTER, ON RAVENS DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR MARVIN LEWIS: "He's more excited than anybody in the city of Tampa."

    LEWIS, ON THE RAVENS DEFENSE: "I can't wait to see them play Sunday. They amaze me each and every week."

    HARRIS, WHO SAID HE MIGHT GET A JOB PLAYING FLAG FOOTBALL IF HE WEREN'T IN THE NFL, ON WHETHER HE COULD MAKE A LIVING THAT WAY: "It depends on how much you want to eat."

    DILFER, ON HIS CANDID, OPEN APPROACH WITH THE MEDIA: "I think you get beat down enough and at a certain point you realize you have nothing to fear."

    SHARPE ON RAVENS DEFENSIVE END ROB BURNETT: "I would not take anybody over Rob Burnett as a defensive lineman."

    DILFER ON HIS MATURATION: "I've learned that if you're going to claim to be a team guy, you've got to be a team guy. ... The stats just don't matter to me. The only stat that matters is winning."
