"Frye needs a cutoff man to reach any receiver more than 30 yards downfield."

This is a good line. I'm going to watch the Raiders game, on purpose, this Sunday, and with a friend, just so I can steal this line. I will not be giving you any credit for it, Mike. Sorry.

A thousand years from now people are going to be offering these quotes, just like we do now from the Bible and Confucious.

And some others.

From the book of Sayings. Chapter 10, verse 3:

"Rutilus tergum tantum humus per Colt tamen Tela don't have vir per nomen of Rutilus tergum"

Amen.

"Daunte Culpepper of Earth.....

RISE."

Detroit must have built their stadium on a cemetery, with all the karmic payback they've been getting.
