Bills Rub Salt in the Wound

Post-Game Quotes from the Bills, Week 5 (this is ugly as hell):   "I mean, who didn't know we were going to run the ball? They've been exposed in the run game the entire season." - Stevie Johnson "...

Life Imitates Presidential Interviews

6

Sorry if someone else has already pointed this out, but I just realized something kind of interesting. In 2008, then President Bush was asked about baseball in an interview with Politico. After all, he was the former co-owner of the Texas Rangers. Check out this excerpt: Q: Mr. President, I know you're going to hate this, but I'm hoping that we may twist your arm and talk about baseball for just a moment. (Laughter.) Mr. President, you're a Major League Baseball team owner again. Everyone is a free agent. You have a Yankees-like wallet. Who is your first position player? Who's your pitcher? THE PRESIDENT: That's a great question. I like Ottley [sic] from the Philadelphia Phillies. He's a middle infielder, which is always -- you know, they say you have strength up the middle -- there's nothing better than having a good person up the middle that can hit. And Roy Halladay from the Toronto Blue Jays is a great pitcher. He's a steady guy, he burns up innings. Except for the fact that the idiots at Politico spelled Chase Utley's name wrong (the horror!), it strikes me that we now have both these players. Strange no?

Some nice quotes from Mrs. Franchise 1. "I've heard you guys are a little ruthless at times if you don't like us. So I'm just gonna smile and suck up the best I can to the media. And hope that works in my favor." 2. "No, no, no. That [Cliff Lee's #34] should have been ours in July. So technically he just kept it warm until we got here, right?" 3. "We're well-off. We have plenty of money. We don't have a ring."

Modesty is Good

Wow...Pedro's Rehab

"Both of my calves were blown out," he said. "That’s how I hurt my shoulder. I needed a complete up-and-down rehab." His longtime personal physical therapist, Chris Correnti, who worked for the Red Sox and is now in the Mets’ organization, supervised his rehab. "It was really, really intense," Martinez said of his rehab. "The most intense work I’ve ever done in my life. Two times I threw up while training and peed in my pants because I was out of control, it was so hard. I couldn’t do anything about it. "I’ll tell you this. I wouldn’t do it again."

Baldinger on Vick

"I think Andy's saying, 'Good luck preparing for us, we're going to create the most dynamic offense we can with Donovan McNabb, Michael Vick, Brian Westbrook, Jackson, Jeremy Maclin and LeSean McCoy,'" Baldinger said. "With those weapons, you'll have as much speed on the field as any team has ever seen."

Reid's Colorful Language

1

As a fan of Big 12 football (particularly the Waco representative), I was curious whether Reid thinks the spread offense would work in the NFL. "Well, the quarterback has to take some hits in that offense to make it work," Reid said. "And the passing part of it, we already do a lot of this stuff. As a coach, you'd just hate to see the quarterback get that banged up. Some of these [college] guys are tough hombres." I love the way this guy talks...

How It Feels to be Bitch Slapped

An anonymous Eagles fan asked [Bradie] James what it was like to get drummed by the Eagles. James: "Hey, I can tell you it was miserable. It was definitely the longest game of my life. I couldn't believe that, now not taking anything away from Philly, they played a good game, but everything that could happen wrong for us happened. We had guys fumbling. [Tony] Romo got sacked a couple of times, lost the ball. Touchdown, touchdown. It was crazy. They put us out of our misery."

"I agree that I need improvement there [blocking]," said Celek. "I know I can do it. I struggled with that early last year, and once I got into the starting role I think I picked it up a little bit. It is something that I'm going to get into this year and I'm going to do great with it. I'm going to get better. It's not a strength thing. It's technique. It is about being consistent and working at it, and I'm going to work and work at it. I'm going to make myself into the best player I can be."
