Okay, this past weekend, well, Thursday, wasn't kind to the Bengals. We kept it to a tight game and went into overtime, but it was rough. Still, 6-3 isn't anything to sneeze at.
Now it's time for some funny football!
But first, let me mention the Honorable Mentions...those quotes that were not quite right for last week... or came on Monday night.
“...good plays, bad plays—just keep coming...”
I'd hope so. If they just quit, then there's no game.
“...don’t be surprised if they give the big back another try...”
Snicker. Second chances are my forte.
“...a lot better up front...”
Some think so. Giggle.
And now for those quotes this week. Some real zingers in this bunch.
“...taking a shot from inside...”
Less messy than leaving it on the outside.
“...he leaks out of the backfield...”
Someone should help him. Or get him a Depends.
“...a bigger body there, trying to block...”
Hey, there's nothing wrong with a big body to help out.
“...two linebackers in the main gap—sometimes they block, sometimes they don’t...”
At least they made it to the gap.
“...bodies tumbling at the sidelines...”
They double as cheerleaders during the commercial breaks. Grin.
And now for that Doozy of the Week:
“...a jerk route...”
I think plenty of guys need this label on them. Then you know what you're getting into when you're getting into it.
Thanks for reading. Hopefully your team won and if they didn't, well, there's always next week.
Stay tuned for my picks from Week Ten!
