I remember when I first walked into Mayer’s cavernous office. You had to walk 50 yards to get to him, and in that time he could really study everything about you.

Glenn Murray

Lee Westwood
If you go 90 yards in a hundred-yard race, you come last. Usain Bolt slows down for the last half a yard, but for 99 yards, he is that far ahead that he can. In our business, you can’t be far enough ahead. It is such a competitive marketplace.
Philip Green
Guys who aren’t going to be brought down on first contact, they’ll get you fired up. When you see guys spinning away and getting extra yards, it fires you up.
Zac Taylor
I didn’t mind playing against Ronaldo. He wasn’t as quick as me over the first few yards, I always felt that I could stick with him and I always felt I did okay against him. You always had to be switched on. He loved a step-over and was very skillful and he could sometimes make you look stupid.
Wayne Bridge
Once I had my son, I stopped shopping in stores because it’s not an easy process to try on clothes – and I’m not an impulsive buyer. I need to do the dance in front of the mirror, the whole nine yards.
Solange Knowles

Andrew Zimmern
I was a highlight coordinator. My job was to go in and watch games, watch and type. Basically every time the camera frame changed, I had to log it as something: ‘Emmitt Smith rushed for 4 yards… Close-up of Jimmy Johnson on the sidelines… 37-yard field goal.’
Tom Herman
‘Atlanta’ is Wild West-y – every corner of the city is trying to get by under its own rules. There’s no single narrative. At the outer edges, the overgrown parking lots and project blocks, the city is a few yards away from apocalypse, and if you slow down, it could engulf you.
Hiro Murai
At some point, you’re not going to be able to run the ball for 180 yards, even with the best running back in the NFL. That’s when you have to be able to throw the ball.

Should we go back to huddling? Should we go back to putting all these tight ends in there and have 250 yards a game? It doesn’t win anymore. So should we do it because that’s what the people before us did? No.
Lane Kiffin
I never feel like I'm in a rush. I'm controlling the pa

I never feel like I’m in a rush. I’m controlling the pace. If I have the ball and hit the hole right now and get 3 yards, I feel like I can be patient, work for something, knowing I can still get the 3. It’s something that’s hard to be coached on. I just feel I’ve perfected it over time.
Le’Veon Bell

John Burroughs
I had such a tie with my eyes and my hands. I could look at a telephone pole 40 yards away, take out a 7-iron, and hit it 10 times in a row. I had something special. And somehow, I really understood the game, all without having a lot of guidance.
Billy Casper
Heaving up a blind pass to maybe pick up 10 yards, rather than throwing the ball away – I can’t do that.

Rudolf Hilferding
Really, you don’t want to think about yards after the catch when the ball is in the air. You want to think about catching the ball. And then let the rest play its way out.
Amari Cooper
There certainly is a good ‘Tex Mex’ restaurant very close to our office. My office is around 100 yards from it. I call it Tex Mex because every couple of years it’s changed hands and changed name, I’m not exactly sure why!
Andrew Oliver
I want to lead the league in yards, touchdowns, basically about everything a receiver can do.

The fact is football players get beat all the time in the course of a game. But if it happens to a defensive tackle, it’s usually 5 or 10 yards. With us, it’s 76 yards.
