"That's the thing about having a strong arm, you can force it in small windows."
"Where the heck does Brandon Marshall come from? (because he's so big 6'4" 230) Al just chuckled."
"It looks like he threw it in between 'em. He threw it above Stokley and under Marshall." (Yep, that's what it looks like.)
"The, the, the, the, quick throw came in. Then it's one of two things.
One, is it complete or incomplete? And if it's complete is it a fumble?
But was there contact?
… There's a lot of things to look at Al…
Anthony Smith touches him with his left hand, but it might be before he makes the catch so then it's still a fumble.(or is it?)
Before, before that, before he could touch him it was a fumble – right?
Then you get back to that. What happens now?" Uff-dah!
Good Game - too bad I switched my yahoo pick at the last minute - THANKS STEVE! : p
[Edit] [Delete] [View Comments]Subject : Maddenisms 10/14/07 - “Reggie. Reggie. Reggie. He’s really pulled the cork tonight.”Posted Date: : Oct 14, 2007 8:35 PMSeattle vs. NOFirst of all I have to say, poor Shaun Alexander. What haters they are in Seattle. It's not like he sucks, he's just no Reggie Bush. And Reggie didn't actually start playing until last week either... It's not like Alexander gets big blocks.
With that we will now focus on some of tonight's Maddenisms. Madden actually was pretty good for the first quarter. He made sense. But he didn't fail me. When Reggie started running, so did Madden's mouth
"Walter Jones, the big left tackle for the Seattle Seahawks, is always fun to watch for a Seahawks game." (I'll make sure not to look for him in the other games.)
"When the knee goes down…Remember the one knee equals two feet… If he does get his hand under it, it's okay. Yeah." (Remember 1 knee equals two feet! Remember that.)
"That pass protection was SPECIAL, when you give an NFL quarterback that much time where he can look left, he can look right, he'll complete 90% of the time." – That's special – good for you Drew Brees.
"What did Mike Holmgren say about that? He blew a gasket or somethin?"
"That's a good thing when you still have time outs, you can throw it towards the boundaries and call a time out, or throw it in the end zone."
"If you're going to take a shot, you have to go for the end zone."
"Yesterday I felt that way, today I don't feel that way." – about Holmgren faking calling a timeout. "I don't like that especially since it comes from the back of the kicking team and I don't like when things come from the back."
"You have to have a good snap. Then you have to have a good hold. Then the obvious is you have to have a good kick." (That's how kicks work – I always wondered.)
"You know they feel like they can win their division. It's not like they're in there with the Patriots or the Colts or something." Tru dat!
"Trufant is their best corner. He really got turned around and he really didn't need to get turned."
"That's not even coffee anymore, they put so much stuff in it that if you are in line and someone is ordering three of those things, you are in line long enough to go to another Starbucks." – Remember that tomorrow morning.
"You can tell Lance Moore you can do more than get a first down. After you catch it you can get up and run." – Hopefully Sean Payton got the memo.
"Reggie. Reggie. Reggie. He's really pulled the cork tonight."
More about Reggie - "Tonight he's kept his feet moving. Those moves were jump cut. He's very tough to catch. Just can't find a tackler."
"When you have a guy like Reggie Bush it makes it easy. He hits from the inside, hits from the outside, it really makes it easier for everyone on the offense including Drew Brees."
When Reggie lost it on the 15 with a few moments left in the Third – well Madden didn't have much to say, but he did show us, "Right there. That's the hit that dislodged the ball from Reggie Bush."
My favorite of the night - "If they're going to beat you. Let those other guys beat you. Don't let Reggie Bush do it anymore." (Yeah, I'm sure the loss is less of a loss if Reggie's not a factor - but I'm glad he is, cuz he's on my fantasy team.)
And that was enough for the night. There's still a little more than a quarter left, but I've had my fill and hope you did too
With tonight's comments, could Reggie Bush be the next Favre in Madden's eyes? Nah. I don't think so. But for my fantasy team's sake, it wouldn't be a bad thing. I also realized that I'll need to move him to RB/WR position to get both his passing and rushing yards. I got screwed b/c none of his receiving yards counted – phooey!
