This Week in Quotes: November 10, 2009

compiled by Rory Hickey

IF WE IGNORE JOEY PORTER WILL HE JUST GO AWAY?

"It just goes back, back when I was in Pittsburgh, just never really too much cared for New England, and I really still don't care for New England. And the hate's been there for a while, especially after all the cheating they did back in the day. I cannot honestly say that I agreed with it, but it happened, and it's over with now. So the hate comes from way back then. They can sweep it under the rug if they want to, but just like anybody else that do something [and are] caught by cheating, you put an asterisk by it."

-- Dolphins linebacker Joey Porter discussing his hatred of the New England Patriots. For someone who made one all-pro team seven years ago, he really talks infinitely more than he should. (The Huddle)

"No question. When a guy can tell a ref when to throw a flag, and he gets it -- stuff like that -- I mean, he's got his own rules. I mean, they made the whole 'don't go at the legs' because of Tom, you know, so whenever he feels that somebody's coming at his legs, he just points at the ref, and he gets the flag. You've got to honestly say he's got his own rules."

-- Porter when asked if Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has his own set of rules

IT WAS UNCLEAR WHETHER THE CHANT WAS DIRECTED AT PORTER OR THE BABY KANGAROO ON THE FIELD

"JOOOOOEY! JOOOOOOEY!"

-- Chant by the crowd at Gillette Stadium (including yours truly) during the final minutes of the Patriots victory over the Dolphins after Porter recorded no tackles or sacks during the game

JOEY PORTER THINKS GETTING MOTIVATION FROM HIS COMMENTS IS CHEATING

"I think he was very motivating for our team throughout the course of the week and into the game. When you hear that kind of stuff, guys take it to heart, coaches take it to heart."

-- Patriots quarterback Tom Brady on the team being motivated by Porter's comments (Boston Herald)

THE IMPACT OF THAT TOUCHDOWN WAS FELT FOR ... KILOMETERS

"I made sure I caught it first. A bunch of the guys were making fun of me because I took so long to see it in my hands."

-- Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin on his game-winning touchdown catch against the Eagles (Scout.com)

JERRY JONES DOESN'T KNOW WHETHER TO BE ENCOURAGED OR DISCOURAGED

"At halftime, we came in and he says, 'My fault on the running game'. And I said, 'No it isn't your fault.' He jumps back at me and said 'IT IS MY FAULT' I said, 'OK it's your fault.' But he said he would get it corrected. And sure enough they had 16 yards rushing in the second half, so it wasn't all his fault, he played some things different second half than he did in first half."

-- Cowboys coach Wade Phillips describing nose tackle Jay Ratliff's emotions during halftime of the Cowboys' eventual 20-16 win in Philadelphia. (True Blue)

WE'VE ALL BEEN THERE

"I'll take an ugly win over a pretty loss every [expletive] time. I ain't trippin' at all, high standards or not. Hey, you've got high standards for the female you choose, too -- but sometimes, you know, you just end up making a choice."

-- Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne on the team's ugly victory over the Texans and another ugly scenario we've all encountered at one point or another (Yahoo!)

HE'S NOT REALLY A WILD DOG PERSON EITHER ... TOO SOON?

"I won't be a Wildcat guy. I can't. It's a different style of play. It's almost like a hit-or-miss type of thing. My position is quarterback. That's what I was born to do."

-- Eagles quarterback Michael Vick on his desire not to be solely a Wildcat player (Philadelphia Daily News)

YOU DON'T HAVE TO KICK THE HEAVYWEIGHT DIVISION WHILE IT'S DOWN

"It was like a heavyweight fight, and they're not always pretty."

-- Chargers defensive lineman Jacques Cesaire (Fifth Down Blog)

HOUSH! THERE IT IS! HOUSH! THERE IT IS!

"It could be that we were playing Detroit."

-- Seahawks wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh on why the Seahawks weren't daunted by facing a 17-0 halftime deficit ... only the Lions could fail to cover as 10.5-point dogs when up by 17 at half. (Detroit Free-Press)

I'M GOING TO GO AHEAD AND CROWN THAT COMMENT

"I'd also like to compliment the Bears too because they played hard and they came back ... And the last thing I'll say is 'we didn't let 'em off the hook.'"

-- Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt closing his address to the media by doing his best Dennis Green impression (CSN Chicago)

"MURDERED BY JOHN RIGGINS" IS CURRENTLY AT 6-TO-1 ODDS IN THE DAN SNYDER DEATH POOL

"This is a bad guy that owns this team. I'll just tell you that upfront. Bad guy. And if the Commissioner is worried about potential new owners and saying some of these guys shouldn't apply, he might want to police his own inside guys ..."

-- Former Redskin great John Riggins telling us how he really feels about Redskins owner Dan Snyder (D.C. Sports Bog)

"Let me put it to you this way, Cris, this person's heart is dark."

-- Riggins emphasizing the Snyder wasn't just a bad owner, but a bad person. Did Snyder run over Riggins' dog or something?

AHH, PASSIVE AGGRESSION

"Dear Dan Snyder, We would like to thank you for completely destroying our football team. Happy Holidays!"

-- An ad in the Express newspaper by Duffy's Irish Pub (D.C. Sports Bog)

I MEAN THEIR LOGO IS A STAR SO YOU COULD SEE HOW THEY WOULD BE CONFUSED

"What Andy Reid and his program stand for is the opposite of what the Cowboys stand for. The Cowboys are a star system. It's all about building around individuals first and collecting talent, collecting great players. Andy has always been about building a team ... the Cowboys stand for everything that's wrong with the NFL."

-- Ravens coach John Harbaugh when asked why the Eagles have had so much more success than the Cowboys over the last ten years (NFL Nation)

IS THAT A HATE CRIME?

"I definitely stay in Atlanta in the offseason, so if Mike Smith want to see me, he can find me. Definitely can find me. Definitely can find me. That's some bullshit right there."

-- Redskins defensive back DeAngelo Hall commenting on a sideline skirmish between he and the entire Falcons sideline; more specifically, Falcons coach Mike Smith (CSN Washington)

INDEED THEY DID KISS THE BABY, INDEED THEY DID

"Beautiful game today, if Ed Reed steal one of my footballs again I'm gonna call the police, damn thief, they kissed da baby still<--Pow!!"

-- Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco's thoughts on Sunday's victory against division-rival Baltimore (Twitter)

TO BE FAIR TO CHARLIE WEIS, SOMETIMES IT TAKES MORE THAN ONE YEAR TO IMPLEMENT AN ADJUSTMENT

"One thing that helped us, and I really hope this doesn't come across wrong, but I think the thing that helped us this year was last year, because we knew they'd line up the same way."

-- Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo on a key to Navy's upset victory over Notre Dame (South Bend Tribune)

GOING BY ALL THESE COMMENTS FROM DIFFERENT PLAYERS, RODNEY HARRISON REALLY NEEDS TO START TAKING SHOWERS

"Maybe it is a way for him to deflect attention away from himself because I think everybody who's been in this league for a long time knows that he may be the dirtiest guy that's ever played this game. I think somebody forgot to tell him that that long, wide, 3-foot white line on the sideline, we play inside those, and he spent a lot of his time playing outside of those. I don't have a lot of respect for that guy."

-- Titans center Kevin Mawae on NBC analyst Rodney Harrison calling Mawae a dirty player (The Tennessean)

"If Rodney Harrison wants to accuse somebody of being dirty, tell him to look at his 16 years of highlights. I guarantee he got fined more in one year than I have my entire career."

-- Mawae

HE KIND OF DID THAT BACKWARDS BUT WE GET THE POINT

"They've had a lot of fun at my expense. I've had some fun at their expense at times. It's the times like this where you beat them and they just keep talking. They just keep going and they just don't know when to be quiet. You know, I've said a lot of things about Jets fans in the past and I'm sure at heart they're good people, most of them are good people. The Giants fans are a different type of people, just put it that way. There's a little more class on the Giants side and some Jets fans take the 'cl' out of class."

-- Dolphins defensive end Jason Taylor on New York Jets fans (The Huddle)

"To score a touchdown in New York against the Jets in the last time I'll be in the hellhole they call a stadium up there before they get rid of it and move to the new one, it was outstanding."

-- Taylor on scoring a touchdown against the Jets in the Meadowlands

AND YOU THOUGHT MMQB QUALIFIED AS "FAVRE PORN"

"I was standing behind him and I saw him kinda reach for it ... reach for his groin ... and ... you know ... hold it and ... rub it ... that's what I think I witnessed. It twinged a bit on him."

-- Vikings coach Brad Childress describing watching quarterback Brett Favre tend to his injured groin (Minneapolis Star-Tribune)

MIGHT WANT TO SHOOT FOR AN EASIER RECORD THERE CHRIS

"We really believe like we can ... like we started off 10-0 last year ... before we played Jacksonville, we sat down and was like, 'We really feel like we can go 10-0 in these last ten games. We still want to make the playoffs and we know it's going to be a very, very tough thing to do, but that's what records are for -- they're meant to be broken."

-- Titans running back Chris Johnson on the possibility of the Titans making the playoffs this year (NFL.com)

SO IF TED GINN IS JESUS THEN WHAT DOES THAT MAKE ANTHONY GONZALEZ?

"Wasn't that marvelous? You know, in the Bible, on Palm Sunday they threw flowers and garlands at the Good Lord and then on Friday, they picked him up, beat the shit out of him, crucified him, and in this league they give us seven days -- only gave him five."

-- Miami offensive coordinator Dan Henning on how Ted Ginn Jr.'s performance against the Jets compared to Jesus. (Sun-Sentinel)

"To me, there can be no better human story than what happened last week around here and what Teddy was able to come up with. You can take anything that happened in that game, that was the best feeling for me to see him come out of that. He had to be lower than whale defecation, and that's at the bottom of the ocean. You know what I mean?"

-- Henning giving another analogy and comparing Ginn to whale poop. Are we sure this guy implemented the Wildcat?

GO F*CK YOURSELF, SAN DIEGO

"What a bum. Come on. End this f*cking game. Pffft. Ugh. Let's go home already."

-- An unknown person in the production truck of the Richmond-Villanova game, after Richmond missed a potential game-winning field goal (The Delco Times)

FAREWELL PRESS CONFERENCE FOR FIRED COACH ... GENERALLY NOT A GOOD IDEA

"Help this football program ... or do away with it."

-- Recently fired Memphis Tigers head coach Tommy West on the state of the Memphis football program (Online Sports Guys)

COULDN'T HAVE MADE THAT A LITTLE RACIST FOR OLD TIMES SAKE?

"If you're home and the crowd goes crazy you know something good's happening. And if they go oohhhhhhhh, you know, they give you one of those sad ones. You know something, not good for your team has happened."

-- ABC announcer Bob Griese on the dynamics of crowd reactions (Awful Announcing)

THERE WAS A SUBSEQUENT MASS EVACUATION OF THE STADIUM DUE TO TERRIBLE ANALOGIES

"These turnovers are like a bug ... H1N1 here!"

-- Broadcaster Ron Thulin on the amount of turnovers during the Kansas-Kansas State game (Awful Announcing)

Really, great way to overcome the "creepy child molester" jokes, Childress. I think you've now moved up to "just plain creepy".

I've come to appreciate The Chiller's method of mocking media hype, which is how I would characterize that quote. The guy's absurdist remarks are very dry and completely deadpan, and fairly amusing, to those of us who like that sort of thing. He may be miserable at evaluating qb talent which isn't a lock for the Hall of Fame, but by NFL head coach standards, he can be pretty humorous.

"Let me put it to you this way, Cris, this person's heart is dark."

That whole Riggins interview on Inside The NFL was spectacular, but you at least got some of the better quotes out of it.

(I also like the Eagles)

I actually agree with that first comment by Porter about the *.

Yep, just because you're a loudmouth who doesn't make all-pro teams, doesn't mean you're wrong.

Nope, being wrong does that.

Just glad that the Patriots have Joey Porter to keep them motivated, because otherwise they would not try hard or even really attempt to win games. Witness this year's game in Denver. No sir, a professional team should be all about bulletin board material and punishing those who provide it for them.

It is pretty hard getting up for division games.

Very unusual to have 2 Colts worth quoting in a week, but here's a gem from Freeney:

We're the hunters. We go out and hunt. They may want to hunt us, but we want to hunt them, so there's going to be a lot of people hunting.

5
by Key19 :: Tue, 11/10/2009 - 11:51am

Yes, John, Jerry not using the preferred franchise building strategy really converts the Cowboys from "average team over the past 10 years" to "standing for everything that's wrong with the NFL."

Because the Cowboys surely just got destroyed by the Eagles. Right? RIGHT?

So far, you've picked the wrong year to criticize Jerry on personnel moves, John. Because him pushing for Kevin Ogletree and Miles Austin to get playing time was so idiotic. And let's just ignore the fact that we cut about 4 "stars" in the offseason to build a stronger overall unit.

Jerry has definitely not been the best in the past by any means, but this year he's been getting a whole lot of stuff right (even the video board height, who knew?).

8
by Rich Conley (not verified) :: Tue, 11/10/2009 - 12:06pm

"video board height"

I'm not sure you can assume that just because nothing has hit the board that he got it right. I'm pretty sure punters have adjusted their trajectory to avoid it.

""I won't be a Wildcat guy. I can't. It's a different style of play. It's almost like a hit-or-miss type of thing. My position is quarterback. That's what I was born to do.""

I love that. Vick is so dumb its amazing.

10
by Temo :: Tue, 11/10/2009 - 12:13pm

Which is what most of us were saying. I still hate the video board because I generally hate all the shit that stadiums do to basically distract the crowd from the actual game. But it has not, thus far, had a measurable impact on the actual game.

We shall see however as the the sample size increases.

Also don't see how Vick is dumb for wanting to be QB. Many athletes overestimate their abilities in areas, especially those that have lost their athletic ability like Vick has. He's not dumb, just the same as most other pro athletes.

14
by Rich Conley (not verified) :: Tue, 11/10/2009 - 12:30pm

I don't think hes dumb for wanting to be a QB.

I think hes dumb for thinking he can be one at this point. I think hes dumb for not seeing that the Wildcat QB or whatever the hell you want to call it is pretty much perfect for his abilities.

17
by Craig (N.S.) (not verified) :: Tue, 11/10/2009 - 1:00pm

I'd still bet on Lechler deciding that since the team is losing badly anyway, he might as well see how many punts in a row he can kick off of the board.

32
by zip.4chan.org/sp/ (not verified) :: Tue, 11/10/2009 - 3:32pm

I think Vick is saying that bringing him on for one or two plays a game is not really an effective way to use him. I think McNabb was right that bringing Vick on and shuttling McNabb off was gimmicky and destroyed the ability of the QB to get a rhythm going. But I think that insight applies to Vick just as well: everybody is down on Vick's performance, saying he's not what he once was, based on a sample size of about a dozen plays. Vick has no chance to get a rhythm going either--the way he's being used is "hit of miss" just like he described.

If the Eagles actually had Vick on the field regularly, rotating among the various backs (Westbrook, McCoy, Weaver, and Vick), then he might be an effective wildcat weapon or flea-flicker weapon or checkdown option. But bringing him on the field and McNabb off, and making it very obvious, basically removes the element of surprise from Vick's presence on the field. Without surprise, Vick is not going to be useful, and Vick is going to look bad.

I think Vick's insight is relative to how he's being used by Andy Reid and is legitimate.

45
by buzzorhowl (not verified) :: Tue, 11/10/2009 - 11:52pm

This is a very good point. Generally when Ronnie Brown lines up in the shotgun whichever Chad is Miami's current QB is on the field too. Plus, Ronnie Brown plays quite a few snaps in which he does NOT take the snap. Vick had at least one 1,000 yard rushing season in Atlanta. Let him run the ball sometimes.

For the record, I think this is also why Miami isn't getting as much out of Pat White as they maybe hoped, even as Ronnie Brown has continued to be an effective Wildcat QB. Though, in fairness, they seem to have started to find a way to fix that.

12
by Key19IsAnAss (not verified) :: Tue, 11/10/2009 - 12:15pm

He cut all those stars to pay for that obnoxious video board. And its not "we." You do not own a piece of the, play for, coach for or collect jocks for the 'boys.

20
by dbostedo :: Tue, 11/10/2009 - 1:51pm

Isn't it pretty much standard practice at this point to refer to a team you are a fan of by using "we"? Doesn't just about everyone do it? Everyone I know does - kind of the point of being a fan, to associate closely with the team. So I'm wondering why the griping about it.

25
by Eddo :: Tue, 11/10/2009 - 2:20pm

Personally, I make it a point to never use "we" when talking about the Bears. I don't play or work for the team. I root for them.

46
by buzzorhowl (not verified) :: Tue, 11/10/2009 - 11:54pm

People who do not refer to their favorite team as "we" are pretentious.

Yeah, I said it.

41
by Key19 :: Tue, 11/10/2009 - 9:37pm

Yes, but my funds are part of a large fanbase that support the team and make it possible for the team (and Jerry) to be sustained.

Also, fans are the only real thing that create homefield advantage. Without fans, there wouldn't be a team. Also, Jerry tends to cater to the fans a bit, so therefore the input of my fandom brethren can indeed affect the team (for better or worse).

13
by Anonymously (not verified) :: Tue, 11/10/2009 - 12:22pm

Actually Harbaugh didn't make that quote this season, and he was talking about 1999-2008 Cowboys teams, so you pretty much fail. But yeah, it looks like the Cowboys are finally trying to build a franchise, so maybe over the next decade people won't bust out laughing when they hear someone say "America's Team"

42
by Key19 :: Tue, 11/10/2009 - 9:46pm

Yeah, his quote really did have that resounding "I'm only referring to Jerry's teams from 1999-2008" ring to it eh? I mean, guys all the time just up and stop standing for everything that's wrong with the NFL in less than a year. Right. And yet somehow, Jerry wasn't such a bad guy from 1992-1995 I guess? Interesting that when a guy's winning, he instantly isn't standing for everything wrong with the NFL.

Jerry should see a doctor, he's got schizophrenia!

21
by Will Allen (not verified) :: Tue, 11/10/2009 - 1:51pm

Since 1994, Jerry Jones has done a lot of very, very, stupid things to an NFL franchise. The fact that guys named Snyder, Lerner, Bidwell, Ford, Davis, and some others have done a lot of stupid thing doesn't mitigate that very much, and it should be noted that some of those meatheads' teams have won playoff games in the past 13 years.

I was never a Cowboys hater until Jerry Jones bought the team, and there have been plenty of coaches and players for the Cowboys during Jones era that I have had great admiration for, to the point that I have actually rooted for the Cowboys sometimes during the past 20 years. There are few things in football, however, that are more enjoyable than seeing Jerry Jones' mug in the closing moments of a Cowboys' loss. Too bad that this year there likely won't be as many of those occasions.

26
by billsfan :: Tue, 11/10/2009 - 2:23pm

Seeing Jerry pick his nose was particularly enjoyable.

"There are few things in football, however, that are more enjoyable than seeing Jerry Jones' mug in the closing moments of a Cowboys' loss."

It was kind of fun watching Ted Thompson roll over in his grave in the pressbox.

24
by billsfan :: Tue, 11/10/2009 - 2:09pm

Comparing the regular- and post-season records of the two teams over the period specified might just cure your rectal-cranial inversion. One four-point victory does not a decade make.

Cowboys made three playoff appearances since 2000, all first-round losses. Philadelphia made seven in the same time period, 6 of which resulted in appearances in the Conference Championship game, one of which they won.

Parcells built a good team in Dallas... I guess Jerruh deserves the credit for having brought him in.

(I also like the Eagles)

30
by Temo :: Tue, 11/10/2009 - 2:59pm

I think its the "Cowboys are everything that's wrong with football" was the money quote there.

Reeks of biased rivalry-based commentary.

34
by billsfan :: Tue, 11/10/2009 - 3:53pm

It also fails to leave room for the Raiders...

by Fred (not verified) :: Tue, 11/10/2009 - 12:12pm

So why were the Pats motivated by Joey Porter and not by the Jets's comments earlier in the season?

15
by Rich Conley (not verified) :: Tue, 11/10/2009 - 12:32pm

Because the universe revolves around Jerry Porter.

11
by The Other Ben Johnson (not verified) :: Tue, 11/10/2009 - 12:13pm

I'm still reeling from how much I laughed at something Reggie Wayne said. I was not expecting that. The gradual disappearance of Tony Dungy's "talk little and if you lose talk less" policies are revealing that some of the Colts have personality. Who knew? Reggie Wayne for quote of the year.

16
by PatsFan :: Tue, 11/10/2009 - 12:52pm

The best part of the Porter thing was that at the end of the game the stadium video board put up a shot of Porter sitting on the bench and superimposed his all-zeros stat line on it.

18
by Jmagik (not verified) :: Tue, 11/10/2009 - 1:04pm

tough week, but reggie wayne pulls one out ... and john harbaugh cries like a bitch. remind me which team took a qb in the first round? how's that working out for you this year? plus, paying fucking willis mcgahee a billion dollars to take two steps and fall down represents everything right in the nfl. oh, you know what else represents everything that's right in the nfl? STEALING CLEVELAND'S FUCKING TEAM, YOU SHITHEAD.

23
by Will Allen (not verified) :: Tue, 11/10/2009 - 2:05pm

Well, to be fair, and to backtrack a bit from my comments about Jerry Jones above, it was Modell who moved the Browns, and the number of NFL owners who I would categorize as admirable figures could probably be counted on with one hand.

36
by taxistan :: Tue, 11/10/2009 - 4:47pm

If you were "Three Fingers' Brown.

27
by TGT2 (not verified) :: Tue, 11/10/2009 - 2:38pm

McGahee deal is pre-Harbaugh. I think the Flacco pick worked out pretty well. 11th in DYAR and 12th in DVOA, even after Sunday's showing. Anyway, what does picking a QB in the first round have to do with the comments at all?

So, Harbaugh stole a team that a former owner moved 12 years before Harbaugh got there. Got it. It wasn't much of a stolen team either. It's all in the details... or the blatant facts...

CAPTCHA: David mocked.

39
by Jmagik (not verified) :: Tue, 11/10/2009 - 7:49pm

I really don't understand the point of pointing out that Harbaugh wasn't the one who picked up McGahee or moved the franchise. Harbaugh attacked Dallas as an *organization*, and to a lesser extent Jones as an owner. What I was saying was, look at your own organization (regardless of your role in it) before ripping on ours. As for why Cleveland wants that team back: http://deadspin.com/5354194/why-your-team-sucks-cleveland-browns

33
by Tundrapaddy (not verified) :: Tue, 11/10/2009 - 3:36pm

I can see why Cleveland would desperately want that stolen team back about now.

22
by Will Allen (not verified) :: Tue, 11/10/2009 - 1:58pm

Reggie Wayne forgot to mention the role that whisky usually plays in such situations.

44
by tuluse :: Tue, 11/10/2009 - 10:16pm

Or you're just assuming whiskey didn't have anything to do with the Colt's ugly win.

35
by Dice :: Tue, 11/10/2009 - 3:56pm

Not a great TWIQ. Nothing stands out much, aside from OMG, Reggie Wayne speaks. I thought all Colts players not named Manning had their vocal cords removed by Polian.

37
by Arson55 :: Tue, 11/10/2009 - 4:47pm

I honestly think Houshmandzadeh had the best quote there. Simple, yet so true.

40
by Rover (not verified) :: Tue, 11/10/2009 - 9:17pm

When a football coach uses the words "marvelous...the Bible....garlands ...beat the shit out of ...the Good Lord...this league" how can you not give him TWIQ Q of the Week award? That was genius.

And like Jesus, Ted Ginn disappeared after his resurrection at Joe Robbie Golgotha.

47
by just4fun (not verified) :: Wed, 11/11/2009 - 12:37am

Vick may have been born to play quarterback, he just wasn't born to read defenses.

and his comment is silly since his only value is that he is a running qb, his passing is substandard.

48

The Whisenhunt link just takes me to a single comment, which includes the under-appreciated "pouring salt in the womb" cliche:
