Monday Morning Armchair Quarterback ~ Draft Edition with @MeganSlayer

d1b90-monday2bmorning2bquarterback2bposter

I couldn’t let the draft go by without checking for quotes and I wasn’t let down. Not a bit. These guys really need to think before they speak. Ha! But it’s a boon for me and my readers. But before I forget, John Ross for the Bengals.  I’m for the pick. Yes. Who Dey!!!

Now, about those quotes…

“He’s got get-off and burst.” 

Hee hee. Hopefully he doesn’t make a mess, too.

“Dominating physical presence.”

He’s a big guy. He’d better be dominating.

“Creating separation with power.”

Because anything less is uncivilized.

“He loves tight ends; loves receivers.”

Enough said.

“Finds the hole and fills it.”

Probably what he’s supposed to do. It’s appreciated.

“He can’t carry a major load.”

Because it’s already spent.

“Quick and responsive.”

Better than slow and lazy.

“He’s got the arm; he’s got the athletic ability…but can he be competitive in the pocket?”

That’s up to him. If he can use what he’s got, then he’s fine. If not, then they’ve got issues.

Monday Morning Armchair Quarterback ~ S*u*per *Bowl*

d1b90-monday2bmorning2bquarterback2bposter

Soooo… I picked the Falcons. Honestly, the first 2/3 of the game looked like Brady hadn’t shown up. Oh well. Old Joe Buck got good and hard for a few players. But first, here’s the quotes and the honorable mentions

Let me show you some of those funnies.

There are Honorable Mentions from last week–like always–so…here we go…

“Able to split the gap.”

Better than being completely closed off.

“does a good job coming under the radar.”

He’s also good at cleaning up after himself, too.

Okay, time for the Quotes of the Week. These are a real rip. Always!

“able to stretch it, then get it going.”

When there’s a tight end, you have to prep.

“Those kinds of balls.” 

Are what? Pretty? Big? Bouncy?

“he’s a complete receiver with all he’s able to do.”

that’s why he’s the favorite.

“they’ve got a lot of ’em.”

Then there are a lot of favorites.

“the best strip team ever.”

That’s their side job.

And now for the Doozy of the Week. Oh my…

This one is all kinds of wrong. Just all kinds.

“Got a lot of weapons on them.”

Cuz he’s packin’!

Special Mention!!

I’m going to start this next year if Joe Buck continues to be an announcer in the 2017-2018 season.

The Joe Buck Boner.

Every week, Joe Buck picks a player that is his favorite. He might say he’s equal opportunity, but come on… He really likes his favorites.

This week? Oh, since it was the big game, Joe didn’t hold back. Not only did he have one, but he went for the threesome. To be fair, he was only on Matt Ryan’s bandwagon when the Falcons were on top. Once they sank, he abandoned them. Then there was the number two guy…Julian Edelman. I like the guy. I do. But according to the Buck-ster, everyone on the team who caught a ball at one time or another was referred to as Julian Edelman. Danny Amendola and Chris Hogan aren’t Julian. Too bad Buck-ster couldn’t tell. Then there was the big poppy, grand-daddy of them all Buck Boner… for Tom Brady. Good Lord. Buck-ster couldn’t stop talking about him…once he was back on top or at least coming back. He’s handsome, he’s quick, he can’t scramble, but he’s this week’s Buck’s Boner…Tom Brady.

Thanks for reading and please check out the other posts from the rest of the week.

Enjoy!

Monday Morning Armchair Quarterback ~ Championship Week

d1b90-monday2bmorning2bquarterback2bposter

Woo weee… This is getting interesting.

The quotes practically wrote themselves, too. Good grief, the announcers were definitely original this week.

Let me show you some of those funnies.

There are Honorable Mentions from last week–like always–so…here we go…

“Been getting more and more action.”

Because he’s cute and he cleans up well.

“he sees one getting off.”

And he’s pouting because he wants to be that one getting off.

Okay, time for the Quotes of the Week. These are a real rip. Always!

“He can match up and cover any tight end.”

But he’s more selective than just taking any tight end.

 “Doesn’t give these buy guys much help.” 

Because he’s being selective.

“Has a sack and a half.”

Meaning he’s a special one and he’s the favorite because he has those goods.

“Had to unload a lot sooner than he would’ve liked.”

He got extra excited and it happened. No harm, no foul.

“Loading the box.”

Wasn’t that the point?

And now for the Doozy of the Week. Oh my…

This one is all kinds of wrong. Just all kinds.

“He’s got to get smaller to stick it in there.”

Um… then this guy is like…bizarrely hung and pictures are needed.

Special Mention!!

I’m going to start this next year if Joe Buck continues to be an announcer in the 2017-2018 season.

The Joe Buck Boner.

Every week, Joe Buck picks a player that is his favorite. He might say he’s equal opportunity, but come on… He really likes his favorites.

This week? Why Aaron Rodgers was the Joe Buck Boner. No matter how lousy the game was, Joe couldn’t take his eyes off Aaron. It was sweet and disgusting at the same time. But you have to love Buck.

Monday Morning Armchair Quarterback ~ Divisionals Week

d1b90-monday2bmorning2bquarterback2bposter

Did you see the ending to the Cowboys/Packers game? Holy cow! Or should I say, holy last second really freaking long field goal, Batman!

The quotes practically wrote themselves, too. Good grief, the announcers were on fire.

Let me show you some of those funnies.

There are Honorable Mentions from last week–like always–so…here we go…

“Showed he was coming and failed to get picked up.”

Maybe they didn’t want the mess? Or they thought he was taken?

“He toned up well.”

After being rejected, he did some work. He’s feeling much happier now.

Okay, time for the Quotes of the Week. These are a real rip. Always!

“A little loose with the ball.”

That’s how they like it.

 “They’re playing soft.” 

Gotta work up to the hard stuff. Can’t start hard all of the time.

“He brings speed to the tight end position.”

In this case, he wanted fast. Next time he’ll want slow.

“Might find a crease and make a little pick-up.”

He does like those super tight ends.

“He keeps it up.”

Because he found a nice crease to pick up.

And now for the Doozy of the Week. Oh my…

This one is all kinds of wrong. Just all kinds.

“He’s got weapons all around.”

Of course he does…he’s running the toy shop. He can  have whatever weapon he wants.

Special Mention!!

I’m going to start this next year if Joe Buck continues to commentate.

The Joe Buck Boner.

Every week, Joe Buck picks a player that is his favorite. He might say he’s equal opportunity, but come on. He really likes his favorites.

This week the Joe Buck Boner goes to Aaron Rodgers. We heard more about his tight end, nice arm and great ability than any other player. Thank you, Joe Buck.

Monday Morning Armchair Quarterback ~ Wild Card Week

d1b90-monday2bmorning2bquarterback2bposter

Well, we’re not playing, so I can at least enjoy the game. Would’ve been better with the Bengals playing, but it happens. I wish the Giants would’ve done better, as well as the Raiders and the Dolphins, but it happens. I’ve gotten used to resigning myself this season. Hopefully 2017 will be better.

Since it’s that time…let’s get to the funnies.

There are Honorable Mentions from last week–like always–so…here we go…

“the protection up front is working.”

Always good to have working protection.

“He’s got it up the middle.”

Better than going to one side or the other.

Okay, time for the Quotes of the Week. These are a real rip. Always!

“You have to get deeper than that.”

At least make them feel it.

 “An excellent pick-up.” 

When you’ve got the right one, you’ve got the right one.

“Found a hole and stuffed it.”

What else are you supposed to do with that hole?

“3 big bodies in the middle.”

Because they like to be sandwiched by the smaller ones.

“looking for a spark.”

Better to have one than not. Makes the whole situation more pleasurable.

And now for the Doozy of the Week. Oh my…

This one is all kinds of wrong. Just all kinds.

“He’s good for 14.”

Meaning he can last for that long. 14 turns. Nice.

Enjoy!

Monday Morning Armchair Quarterback ~ Week 16 ~ It’s Nearly Over…

d1b90-monday2bmorning2bquarterback2bposter

Kind of glad this is the last week. It’s been painful to be a Bengals fan, although this week wasn’t as bad. Hey, we did beat the Ravens. But… Between lots of penalties (Adam Jones, how about less arguing in the trash can and better performance on the field), injuries (can we have Tyler Eifert and AJ Green back now for the entire year? Sigh.), the line not holding (how about a little less Andy Dalton on his rump and more blocking?), needing those danged PATs and Field Goals to go BETWEEN the uprights (sorry Nugent. I love you and even named a character’s dog after you because I like you, but you’ve got a job to do. You have to do it.), and trading away good players (Sanu comes to mind.)… it’s not been much fun. But I have faith. Next year, baby.

I gotta have something to believe in.

How about we move right on to something that’s comical, instead of depressing?

Yes, let’s move forward to the funnies.

There are Honorable Mentions from last week–like always–so…here we go…

“Slow year with the sack.”

It was worn out and needed time to recover.

“the tight end right in there.”

Where else do you want him?

Okay, time for the Quotes of the Week. These are a real rip. Always!

“He is ripping the cowboys.”

That’s not very nice. 

“They’ve been gashed.” 

Ouch…

“They’ve faced adversity and not given up.”

No one wants to give up, especially when the next time might be the right one!

“Great job spreading the ball around.”

 Better than in a rush, right?

And now for the Doozy of the Week. Oh my…

This one is all kinds of wrong. Just all kinds.

“Spread out to his right.”

Because it just wouldn’t work on the left.

Thanks for reading and please check out the other posts from the rest of the week.

Enjoy!
