    Tough as Nails Meaning: Strong and stubborn or determined.

    This common idiom originated in the early 1800‘s as ’hard as nails’ and later morphed to the more modern usage ’tough as nails.’

    Has nothing whatsoever to do with Jesus or the cross.

    I like the name of the thread. With the frequency with which we turn the ball over, we damned well better be tough as nails if we expect to win!

    Most everything else is forgiven after that.
    Apparently we have the same selective memory.
