Still haven’t seen my Bengals this season, but it won’t be long before I do. I’ll get there. Until then, it’s time for the preseason quotes. There were a few goodies from the first week that didn’t quite make the cut last time around, but they’re here now! Let’s get started.
“He’s as fast as they come.”
Which is why he’s a favorite.
“From the money pocket.”
He moved fast, which is why he found that money pocket so fast.
“A wobbly one.”
He swings low, sweet chariot.
“Playing with his hands.”
Got to work in those tight splits somehow.
Now for those wonderful quotes this week from the various preseason games. You won’t want to miss these.
“Cannot have penetration in the backfield”
He wants it all in the front field.
“Gotta slide and get your body around it.”
We’re back to those tight splits, eh? Sounds more like wrestling.
“We gotta check that and get the ball tucked away so it doesn’t get out.”
If he’s the guy who is swinging low, then yeah, you might want to tuck that back in.
“Undersized but has a little wiggle to him.”
“We’ve got to pick it up; they’ve had their way with us for too long.”
Sure do if you want to keep things even.
“A lot of length on their line.”
If it’s a suck line, then it might be worth it. Gotta try every one.
And now for the Doozy of the Week…this is the one that had me scratching my head the longest or was just so far out there…I couldn’t believe it. Ready?
“Loves to use tight ends in the offense.”
Well, if there are lines and lengths, then you’ve got to use them as an offense. Got to have something between you and the rest of the team.
Well, those are the first week of the madness. Technically the second week, but it’s the first week of full action. Here’s to a good season, less CTE, more great plays and lots of fun! Oh, and WHO DEY!
