"I'm looking forward to a 15-year career, a couple of trips to the Super Bowl and a parade through downtown San Diego.''
-Ryan Leaf after 1998 NFL Draft
"I've known Peyton Manning for a long time and I really love the kid. But when I went and watched Ryan Leaf workout he was impressive. I came away
excited about coaching Ryan Leaf. He is going to be a franchise guy." -fomer Chargers head coach & QB coach June Jones in 1998
"You can go five to ten years without getting a chance to draft a quarterback like this."
-former Chargers GM Bobby Beathard in 1998
"I've never seen an athlete work harder at destroying himself and his career than this guy."
-former Chargers GM Bobby Beathard circa 2000
"The best thing for me and the San Diego Chargers' organization was for me not to be there. Everything I did and messed up in, it was just done
publicly. I definitely wasn't ready for it. I wasn't very mature and was kind of a jerk at some points."
-Leaf after he had signed with Seattle, May 2002
"It's probably the best thing for him to do. He took his money and ran."
-former Chargers teammate Rodney Harrison after hearing Leaf had retired in 2002.
