I kinda goofed up and thought preseason had one more week, but I was mistaken. The last of the preseason games came and went. This week marks the first week of the regular season, so now it gets important. The quotes also get even funnier. Grin.
Here are the Honorable Mentions from the last of the preseason games:
"Great ball handling."
And we can tell he loves that ball handling.
All the tally whackers in a row at the same time!
"Been all rams in this game."
Head-butting has come into the picture...interesting.
"Can step up and just drill it."
As long as someone likes it, then it's all good.
And now for those quotes of the week. Some of these are real rib-ticklers!
"A little explosion on the outside."
That means he came early and made a mess.
Well, maybe it was easier to clean up...
"Nice to have a bigger back end in there."
Yes, smaller sometimes just doesn't do.
"Gotta hang in there and get it off."
Sometimes it takes a little longer to get it off. I tell you, it's worth the wait.
"He is thick and strong."
Wow. Dog gone! Pictures, please?
"Big stud back."
Again, I say wow. I want to see this one!
It's time for the Doozy of the Week. I couldn't believe this one when I heard it and had to rewind about five times. Yep, I did.
"Big, gaping hole up the middle."
On the outset, it's not bad. There was a place up the middle of the field to run and gain yardage. In my slightly off-kilter mind, it was really pervy. I imagined this big hole charging up the middle and the players shouting, come back here hole! Come back!
New this week!!
The Factoid of the Week:
Ralph Wilson, co-founder of the NFL (National Football League) and the Buffalo Bills passed away in 2013.
The Bengals won this week, 23-16 and that's not shabby. Against the Ravens, too, which means a boost in the division. We've got a good chance this year, but we can't get too cocky. Goooooooo Bengals!!
Andy Dalton, #14, Quarterback for the Cincinnati Bengals
