The powers that be are arguing as to whether there should be four weeks of preseason or if it should be shorter. My quick answer is that I want football now… but my longer answer is this – the teams need more time, especially in-game time, to figure out who should stay and who might not be the best fit. They need the real-world experiences to test the players. My Bengals haven’t fared well win-wise during the preseason and they managed to get John Ross hurt. Grr. But, Mixon looked good and hopefully Dalton will have the rust knocked off by the first week…which has two games in it because the Bengals are overachievers!!
Until the season starts, here are the preseason quotes. There were a few goodies from the second week that didn’t quite make the cut last time around, but they’re here now! Let’s get started.
“Not being able to find protection.”
Trojans aren’t that hard to find…
“Everybody’s manned up on the inside.”
I bet that’s stuffed!
“Extends it out.”
Well, yeah, because everyone’s on the inside.
He’s aiming to please.
“I remember when the #9 used to deliver a blow.”
As opposed to using his quick hips.
Now for those wonderful quotes this week from the various preseason games. You won’t want to miss these.
“Fires to a wide-open player.”
Better than handing off to one who is busy.
Missed the wide open one, didn’t you?
“In the red zone, you don’t need that much, but you take what you need.”
I’m sure he can find satisfaction…eventually.
Someone took the bdsm slant this week.
“A lot of pressure from within.”
Because it’s still super full.
That must be how he can get so much pressure on the inside.
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?
“He’s a better pocket pleaser.”
That’s why we keep him around. He knows how to make everyone happy.

Well, those are the quotes from the third week of the madness.
Here’s to a good season, less CTE, more great plays and lots of fun! Oh, and WHO DEY!
