Monday Morning Armchair Quarterback ~ Playoffs Edition ~ Week Two


Playoff time is the right time for fun quotes. I stand by my statement. The commentators really need to think about what they're saying when they say it...or before.

To keep us occupied until next season, here are the honorable Mentions from last week: 

Both times there’s been an open spot for him to get it.
And he’s taken advantage.

Working the back line.
Because he keeps finding those open spots.

A natural pick.
He’s had a lot to choose from, so this is good.

Trying to get open and frees him up completely.
Well, he tried too hard. No one wants him. Sad. 

They kept things clean. Always a plus. 
Now on to those football funnies of the week.

Bringing that one in.
Because he’s had his eye on her all night.

Has a chance to move.
Well, yeah. He set his sights on her and is taking the opportunity.

Here he is in the slot.
Because he got the chance.

Forced him out.
Denied!

Hooks it up.
Second chances are good.

Got the chance to potentially be the free guy.
Since she turned him down after all, I’m not shocked.

And now for the doozy. Who knows why they say some of these things, but someone needs to play it back for them from time to time.

Slides through pressure.
Snicker. Isn’t that the best way to do it? Tighter the better?

Since you're reading this, I'll bring this up. There's a Bengals player whose daughter was diagnosed with cancer. A portion of his jersey sales are being donated to the Cincinnati Children's Hospital to help with cancer research. It's a great cause. I've ordered mine. Want to know more?

Thank you!

Monday Morning Armchair Quarterback ~ Playoffs Edition


So the season is over for the Bengals. We blew it against the Colts. It had to happen. We've got the worst record once we get into the playoffs. But there is still lots of football to play and plenty of quotes to be gathered.

To keep us occupied until next season, here are the honorable Mentions from last week: 

"Punched in."
He's ready to go and get dirty!

"open against his ear."
Hmm. The ear is a usable hole, now? 

"working that whole field."
Since he's punched in, I'd say work that field. 

"he finds his tight end."
Field working has worked.

They kept things clean. Always a plus. 
Now on to those football funnies of the week.

"Loves to escape the pocket."
It's one form of prevention that sometimes works. Kudos for at least trying.

"He has the physical tools."
And those tools are appreciated. 

"is the size the reason they weren't to connect?"
If he was too small for the hole, slippage can happen.

"Big hands."
To make up for the small problem with connecting.

"Smothering the center."
He can't take much more! 

"All kinds of great pressure."
Because he's being smothered. Let go a bit and let him breathe.

And now for that Doozy of the Week. I love these. These are so much fun.  

"That offensive line does a great job of blowing."
It's a talent. They're very proud.

Monday Morning Armchair Quarterback ~ Week Seventeen


So the miracle of a win against the Broncos happened. I don't know how it happened (okay, I do because I saw the game), but I'm glad. Unfortunately the exact opposite happened against the Steelers. Blah. We've made it into the playoffs, but this won't be easy. 

While the game goes on, here are the honorable Mentions from last week: 

"knows they are all bunched up inside."
The fuller the better.

"a tight window."
not after being all bunched up inside. 

"showed his lateral range."
He pulled out of the bunched up, tight window. He can. 

"trying to pound it in."
It's a tight window. It won't work!

All righty then. Interesting.
Now on to those football funnies of the week.

"limited the package."
If it's tight, then yeah, some limiting is needed.

"Got his hands on his flag."
And what is he planning on doing with it? Seeking out that tight window, I assume.

"A couple dominating."
Snort. What are they dominating?

"A real wide hole."
That must be what's being dominated.

"a late release."
Because it's all stretched out!

"needs confidence before the last half ends."
Yeah, because a lack of confidence means he won't be able to perform.

And now for that Doozy of the Week. I love these. These are so much fun.  

"Put it on the money."
Well, after it's stretched out and with lost confidence, putting it on the money sounds like it should be the right thing to do.
