Here were a couple catch Maddenisms I found, well, Maddenesque --
About Foxborough - "That's a great downtown of the great downtowns in this country." Al replied "a great city"
About Randy Moss catches, "Ya just know, you get on this side of that thing...If you're on Randy Moss on this side of the field with Tom Brady throwing you know you have a ball coming."
"The closer you are to the goal line the more you can use those basketball moves."
"What defenses are supposed to do is put fires out. When the other team is feelin' good, you have to go get a hose and put it away."
and my favorite of the night -- "It's a lot easier to run the ball in the 2nd half than the 1st half. A lot easier to run in the 4th quarter than the 3rd. And for all offensive purposes its easier when you have the lead."
Nuff Said.from the second half.
"Doesn't Tony Romo look like sometimes he's out playing in a park?
"There's not much better eatin than that…Michigan Avenue is the greatest avenue in the country." (remember when he was talking about the downtown of Foxborough, being one of the best downtown last week…)
"Put your head down and ram it in there, that's not the way to get first downs…" - But it might work if you're trying to make a baby ;p
"You can't see anything, you can't see the ball, you can't see his body. Again did the ball come out before his knee went down. You see the ball, the ball come out, you still didn't see his knee. Does it appear to come out before his knee's down, ya say?"
"It can be his elbow also, His elbow didn't hit. He can touch his hand. Had it been his elbow, then he'd be down, but his elbow, his elbow doesn't go down… His hand touches, but that's okay. I didn't see any other part…If you can't guess, then I can't guess either. That means you can't overturn it…You couldn't guess, I couldn't guess, so he had to stay with the call."
"They have the bears on their heels and they just keep pushin' em back and back and back."
"The one thing Rex Grossman did do very well was the outs and the ins. That one (was dropped) was done. And then there was the one that was intercepted, but he didn't have anything with that." – Sounds like he did those 'very well' for the Cowboys! – he he.
"When you go to the Super Bowl. You need to be the best team in the NFC the next year. Right now the Cowboys look like the best team. Doesn't look like the Bears now."
And the best quote of the night --
"Rex Grossman's probably getting' to the point where he's boo'in himself."
