It’s the first week of the preseason and while you can’t discount any of the teams, per se, you do get to see who is making the grade and who isn’t. As for the Bengals versus the Giants…the Giants have some work to do. But it’s the preseason, so they have time.
Speaking of work to do, the quotes of the week this week were…interesting. Here are the honorable mentions from last week. They were funny, but not quite ready for prime time.
“He can go ginormous.”
Wow. He must be on a website with that.
“Nice job of concentration.”
Well, if he wants to hit the right hole, then he has to have concentration.
“Got his hand on it to knock it away.”
Guess he wasn’t interested that time.
“Probably the best athlete among the tight ends.”
Athleticism is a good thing in these situations.
See what I mean? Those were pretty good. Grin.
Now onto the Football Quotes that made the grade in preseason, week 1:
“Need help up front.”
Sounds like a call to arms.
“He’s a bulldozer.”
Some do like to plow their way through the field–whichever field it happens to be.
“Knows where his receivers are.”
Then he’s been here before. He knows the lay of the land.
“Get the ball out quickly.”
Rather innocuous unless you’re me when I heard it. I thought more of getting his junk out and ready for use.
“His ability to get guys open.”
Again, innocuous, but I envisioned a real player roaming the field and knowing who needed a little extra TLC in order to be ready to…er…play.
That just sounds all kinds of wrong. Whipped? With his own legs? Or whipped by someone/something in the legs? Odd.
And now for the Doozy of the Week. That quote that really made me step back and cock my head. Yeah, those are out there.
“The big tight end that’s been so impressive.”
Now…do you mean he’s got an impressive package and knows how to use it? Or he’s a good receiver? He makes all the boys happy? Got to be clear about these things.
And there you have it. The Monday Morning Armchair Quarterback quotes of the week. Stay tuned for next week, week 2 and see what gems I manage to find. Until then…. Go Bengals!
