Football Follies of a different kind –
I am in the middle of Capital One Bowl Mania as well as the last few weeks of the NFL season. Thought it would be fun to share some of the content from our illustrious announcers. It is fair to say that (K)notty Words matriculate their way back and forth during the broadcasts.
The safety shouldn’t give the receiver that big of a cushion.
Don’t know how he didn’t make the tackle.
He has not thrown a pick in his last 5 games.
Even if it’s not tipped, it’s in trouble
He didn’t line up in the right slot
I don’t put a lot of blame on Smith
Detroit trying to find a way to win, not yet though
They just don’t flinch.
You can’t run through the defenders.
He hasn’t been able to tackle anyone
Couldn’t have been more open
White couldn’t find anyone to block.
They got it all going now, don’t they…?
I’m not sure if it was a double play called.
They figured it out in the second half, didn’t they?
Defensive line not getting it done
Of course, this game’s not over yet, Jim
He can’t be the first guy to touch the ball after going out of bounds on your own.
Kicked into another gear, didn’t he?
You’re not a big fan of that quarterback rating
Brady not afraid to show his emotions.
Don’t do it. You are losing the battle on the field.
It’s not a physical thing, it’s a mental thing.
Don’t let the quarterback’s movement change your route.
I’ll tell the story, but I won’t tell it all.
I wouldn’t even bring it up
Not going to get away this time.
They still haven’t run the ball.
Not many teams are going to stop them at the goal line.
You can fly, but you can’t hide.
Dallas can’t afford to get down this early in the game.
I don’t know if it is a bull rush.
Questions as to whether or not he would be able to play.
Teams just don’t lose when they get that kind of return.
He wasn’t even looking for the snap.
I do not think this is going to the ground.
I don’t think he has been wrong all year.
You are going to be with us in this booth for Super Bowl LI, are you not?
At 38, running for the first down doesn’t bother him.
The key is not to get overwhelmed early.
When you don’t have an off-season to implement changes, it is tough to make them.
He’s just not used to taking a hand-off. It’s not easy to change that when you are used to catching the ball. Taking a handoff is different.
It’s only on the NFL Network, which means most won’t get to see it.
Samuel’s hit was notable because after doing exactly what the NFL wants him not to do (leading with his head).
You better be able to come up and make these kinds of plays, not easy to do.
Snap wasn’t very good.
I want him near the line of scrimmage; he’s not a deep cover guy.
You’re frustrated, you don’t come away with a touchdown; but at least you are on the board with a field goal.
These guys just can’t catch. Cleveland just doesn’t do a good job. Somebody should have been able to catch that ball with three defenders around the receiver.
I don’t think anyone imagined Brees would be as good as he is.
I always thought, “This guy can’t do it.”
Not that the defending Super Bowl champs needed confidence.
They’re not even leading the NFC South.
Trying to get to the sideline and they cannot.
Romo is a competitor and to not be a part of the team on the field, that is not easy.
I don’t think he has any comment; he just hasn’t made any comment.
I can’t imagine you not having something to say about that living here in Dallas.
He just hasn’t talked about anything.
If they don’t protect the quarterback any better than that, they will have big problems.
Plenty of opportunities to learn about proofing the articulation!
Have a great week,
