Playing The NFL Announcer Quote Game

Sunday, November 11, 2007


I'm going to try something new this evening (really just because I need to occupy my time), but here's how it's going to go. I've got a set of nine quotes so far, and it's your job to send quotes from the 4pm games and from the Sunday Nighter to come up with our official Top Ten.

You can email them to me or post them in the comments. We'll try to knock as many of these of the list as the night goes on (Joe Buck and John Madden should provide enough ammo.

Honorable Mention:

"No excuse for those mechanical errors to be happening."- Troy Aikman referring to Eli Manning picking up a delay of game penalty (see those are HUMAN errors, if it was the clock's fault then you could say mechanical)

"And McNabb passes Ron Jaworski for all-time on the Eagles passing list."- Kenny Albert
"Sorry Jaws!!!!"- Tony Siragusa (He couldn't have yelled that louder and faster)

Dick Stockton needs to call games by himself, because Baldinger is awful.

Depending on the situation, I can understand where Enberg was coming from on the #5 quote. Either Cincy or Baltimore could have had another chance at that particualr down (with the 5-yard penalty), or they could have taken the down with the three-yard loss. If it was third down, then they might have wished they'd had the penalty to have another shot at a first down.

On the Sirgusa Westbrook comment, Goose was just trying to pay the awesome Westbrook a well-deserved compliment but couldn't get it out.

John Madden, commenting on a dropped snap (Colts/Chargers): "Did the center get it up? Did the quarterback pull out?"
