If you've seen the Arizona Cardinals' "All or Nothing" Amazon documentary, you're well aware of how colorful a character coach Bruce Arians is. The man doesn't mince words, whether on the field or at a press conference podium.

On Friday, the first full day of Cards training camp, Arians once again delivered some memorable lines, with the occasional sprinkling of profanity. 

Here are five of Arians' best comments from Friday morning.

On how much longer he plans to coach: "That's up to God. I don't know. The way I treat myself, not long."

On the joy of playing on a winning team: "It just makes you work harder. You're surrounded by good players, and you wanna play. I bet if you were losing 14 games and getting the (expletive) beat out of you, they might not wanna come back."

On having a mix of younger and older players on his team: "The biggest problem with veteran players is paying them. Their base scale is a hell of a lot higher than the young guys. So he'd better be performing above and beyond that young guy."

Upon being told that 50 young players retired from the NFL during the last two years for health reasons: "50 that retired, or got cut? ... That didn't make a team? That might help. I don't know how many walked off a team's active roster."

On rookie center Evan Boehm possibly taking the starting job away from veteran A.Q. Shipley: "Evan can prove me wrong. A lot of rookies have."
