Well, I didn’t watch the win since the household decided to not watch football – I watched some anyway because…it’s football and I love my sport – for the time being, but the Bengals pulled one off. Okay, so it was against the Browns. I actually thought it would be a decent match up. Maybe I was the only one. Shrugs. It’s still a win and we needed that.
To celebrate the win, let’s get to the quotes!! Here are the ones from last week and a few from week 2.
“He wants to spread it out on each snap.”
He must be the Fonz.
“Took it right in the drops.”
I’ve never heard of it that way, but if that’s the new slang…the drops.
“A had penetration, but B finished the job.”
So DP, but A never finished?
“Just physical contact and not a blow.”
I think you need physical contact for the blow, but if it’s just straight doin’ it, then just physical contact would be right.
Now for the Quotes from Week 4. Sometimes…yeah, just think before you speak. This is live TV.
“Vertical presence at the tight end position.”
That’s a salute, that is.
“Poke him in the eye…ya come right back.”
Or you get decked.
“No one playing better in the red zone.”
That’s not what she said.
“Lingered a little over him.”
Making sure it’s good to the last drop.
“They wanted Gore, they got more Gore.”
Was it messy or the man?
“Got a body on him.”
Like, the guy is bigger or that’s just how much…er…body…he’s got? These things need to be explained and illustrated better.
Now for the Doozy of the Week. There is always one quote that just…blows the mind. This one is a real ringer.
“Trying to fit the hole.”
It’s rather important the player fits the hole. The play certainly isn’t more fun if it’s too small or WAY too big. Just sayin’.

- Someone explain to me why Collinsworth is so infatuated with checks. He checked everything on the screen!
- Who was Gruden’s Go To? Evan Engram. Couldn’t stop talking about him. Oh and Matt Stafford being worth the money. Reminded me of a certain Musburger moment.
- We don’t need Gruden to state the obvious. It’s a catch. We saw that. But the thing about Gruden…once he states the obvious, he NEVER expands on it. Okay, so WHY was that team bad in the red zone last year? If you’re going to talk, make it make sense.
**Here’s to a good season, less CTE, more great plays and lots of fun! I haven’t thrown in the towel on the Bengals, but good grief, we’ve got to start looking better. Sheesh. Oh, and WHO DEY!**
