The 10 Quotes That Will Tell You Everything (Or Nothing) About Week 11 In The NFL

Monday, November 19, 2007


It's tough without DirecTV to catch every single hilarious/awkward comment from NFL Sunday, which is why I rely on some of the ones you email me over the weekend. Here's what I narrowed down is the 10 best of the weekend, and if you have any others please add them to the comments.

Ian Eagle just said, "He grabbed the wrong part of Boller's equipment." (Via Peyton Loves Kenny)

"I've never seen a team attack balls like this [Lions] team."- Tony Siragusa (Via J Mottram)

At the end of the Chargers/Jags game, Dan Dierdorf made Jack Del Rio sound like a creepy stalker: "The Indianapolis Colts are driving their car, and there in their rear view mirror is Jack Del Rio staring at them." (Via Anon)

“A missed kick by Novak the rookie.”- Joe Buck after a Nick Folk kick (He did correct himself but it was funny that he used mixed up Folk with an ex-Redskins kicker)

“And with just 13 seconds left you’d expect the onside kick here.”- Matt Vasgersian, I'm a huge fan Matthew, but yeah....13 seconds left, down be three, no timeouts....you might “expect” that

“James Jones....good novelist, great receiver”- Keith Olbermann (WWII Writing humor always goes over well with Football fans)

"There's a lot of guys that are in that 'short list' category."- Mark Schlereth (Via Heath) Mark, those "Short List Categories" are actually called "Short Lists",

“He got where he wanted to go, and Losman was going in that same hole.”- John Madden

"McGee saying, 'Anyone get the plate number on that jackrabbit?'"- Al Michaels

Umm what?

.....and my personal favorite......

"You know how people like mild or hot? I prefer mine [chicken wings] suicidal. I'll eat them all." - John Madden
"Did you order them?" - Al Michaels
"No, they just brought them over and I just ate them out of the box." - John Madden

Yep....that sounds about right. Can't wait until Thursday as Joe and Troy get to hand out that crappy turkey on a Football trophy above.

Troy looks a bit like Steve Buscemi in that picture. I doubt Joe would take kindly to Troy sitting around putting lipstick on and plotting revenge.

Wags, you don't like anyone who went to an Ivy League school. Be it Olbermann or Conan O'Brien or Joe Paterno or Robert Reich or or Lisa Loeb or Teddy Roosevelt or Boutros Boutros-Ghali or Dr. Seuss or Warren Buffett or Amanda Peet or Sargent Shriver or Garry Trudeau or John Hodgman or Dick Wolf or I.M. Pei or John Nash or Chris Young or John Thompson III or Jimmy Stewart or Kurt Vonnegut or Dick Schaap or Meryl Streep or Bill Nye. In your words, they're all douchebags.

And this is the part where everyone starts attacking Olbermann...

Nov 19, 2007, 11:08:00 AM  

I don't like that Ian Eagle pronounces Ian Aian. Very annoying.

Solomon was laying on his side, that's why he was saying that.

I don't hate Ivy league grads exclusively, I also dislike Princeton grads and people who went to Michigan and Notre Dame.

My, Olberdouche is such a well read young anchorman.

Why, exactly, do you hate Olbermann so much? "Because he is a douche" is not an acceptable answer.

Nov 19, 2007, 12:10:00 PM  

So wait, you hate Princeton twice then?

Nov 19, 2007, 12:15:00 PM  

Would I be lynched if I said that I like Olbermann on FNIA better than Costas (Of course that is like choosing your method of execution). Costas is terrible at reading highlights.

Is Pricneton no longer in the Ivy Leagues?

And yes you very well might be. I think they're all terrible personally but if I had to choose....I'd choose Costas. Olbermann is just so "holier than thou" whenever he talks about Sports.

"Because he is a douche" is not an acceptable answer.

Why not? It's a quick way of encompassing all the things you don't like about him into one quick hit.

And even if you do like Olbermann, you should be able to see why some people don't like him. It's all too clear.

I'm asking why people think he's a douche. I realize he may be annoying and out of place on FNIA, but I don't think that's enough.

Nov 19, 2007, 2:10:00 PM  

I don't associate Princeton with the Ivy League schools, it's in freakin New Jersey.

I don't they would like the association either.

Have you not ever listened to Olby's bizarre rants and his run on sentences, filled with all kinds of big words...that, and his adenoidal voice are awful.

He's a dick, it's obvious, in the same league as Bill Maher and Jon Stewart.

Those three people all have similar political perspectives. Do you dislike them because you don't agree with them or because you actually think they are dicks?

Nov 19, 2007, 2:19:00 PM  

Really, no one has Gannon talking about balls?

Nov 19, 2007, 2:21:00 PM  

So you hate New Jersey too now, and all the people who come from it too? People like Thomas Edison or Frankie Valli or Kevin Smith or Frank Sinatra or Bruce Springsteen or the Sugarhill Gang or Lou Costello or Michael Ian Black or Zach Braff or Joe Pesci or Savion Glover or James Gandolfini or Shaquille O'Neal or Meryl Streep (again) or Gary Williams or my dad (you don't know him) or Alfred Kinsey or Jason Alexander.

Everyone hates New Jersey, and apparently most of those people do too, because they all got the hell out.

Not sure if you are hinting at this, but short lists generally don't have a bunch of guys. That is why they are short

"I'm asking why people think he's a douche. I realize he may be annoying and out of place on FNIA, but I don't think that's enough."

He's pretty much always been annoying wherever he goes, and I actually like his show.

"Do you dislike them because you don't agree with them or because you actually think they are dicks?"

Both. They all come across as so smart and shit, but never really offer any remedies to the things they whine about. Lightweight douches.

I like New Jersey, the part right below AC, and about 30 miles inland, all the way down to Cape May...minus most of Wildwood, however.

My family has a house on the beach in Avalon, NJ. Beautiful area in South Jersey.

North Jersey is an insane asylum.
