I messed up and thought there was one more week of preseason, but what really occurred was the last straggler games. No problem. I've got some great quotes from the preseason, so let's go with those Honorable Mentions!
"Able to get out the back door."
Hmm... was he there when he wasn't supposed to be?
"He had him wide open."
I think I wrote this line recently in a book.
"Grabbed it off."
Did it hurt?
"Coming right up the middle."
Well... was there someone there to clean up the mess?
And now for those funnies for the week!!
"Slides underneath him."
Kinky! He knows what he wants!
"Getting it in there to bat it away."
Now that sounds fun. Like he wants it, but he doesn't.
"Get rid of that ball and sink it deep."
"An excellent job of getting him gathered and planted."
Well, yeah. He doesn't want a wiggler!
"He absorbs a good blow."
Does he give a good blow, too?
"He has been the pressure."
Ah, so he's got girth, eh? Nice!
"Known passion for small, fast recievers."
He has a type, no knocking that.
And now for the Doozy of the Week:
"A lot of bodies flying around back there."
Snort. Orgy time!!!!
Did you know... in the preseason, the point after kick was moved to the 15 yard line, making the kick 33 yards in total. This was only used for the first two preseason games in order to see if moving the line back made the kick more difficult.
Thanks for reading the Report. I love finding these gems and bringing them to you.
The Bengals managed to pull one out this week. It was a nail-biter. I wasn't sure if they were going to win versus the Ravens, but 23-16 is good enough for me.
Stay tuned for next week's quotes! :-)
