The Week In Quotes: November 24, 2017

by Cale Clinton

CALL YOUR SHOT

"My first INT will be a pick 6 I'm calling it now"

-- Los Angeles Chargers cornerback Desmond King tweeted this out on April 20 last year. He notched has first interception on Thanksgiving. Yes, it was indeed a pick-six. (Desmond King, Freezing Cold Takes, Twitter)

SURELY, THIS WILL END WELL

"If you think Bob Kraft came after you hard, Bob Kraft is a p----y compared to what I'm going to do."

-- Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones reportedly said this to commissioner Rodger Goodell following the suspension of running back Ezekiel Elliott. (Darren Rowell, Twitter)

CAPTAIN McADOO ATTEMPTS TO RIGHT THE SHIP

"A calm doesn't suit me; a storm does."

-- New York Giants head coach Ben McAdoo sends a message to the rest of the league that the two-win Giants are not to be trifled with. (The Giants Beat)

NOBODY MESSES WITH THE EAGLES

"They ain' t f*cking with us … That's how we feel in this locker room."

-- Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery articulates the mood in the Philly locker room following the team's hot start. (Jimmy Kempski, Twitter)

YOU REALLY THINK FIVE INTERCEPTIONS WOULD SPELL IT OUT

"I'm going to take my time and evaluate who would be the starting quarterback next week."

-- Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott was seemingly not immediately convinced to bench quarterback Nathan Peterman after the rookie's five-interception fiasco last Sunday. McDermott named Tyrod Taylor the starter later in the week. (Joe Buscaglia, Twitter)

BILL BELICHICK WATCHED '2012' ON THE FLIGHT OVER

"Players did a great job dealing with all the challenges we had to deal with. I think we're fortunate there was no volcano eruptions or earthquakes, or anything else while we were down there when you have two NFL franchises in the area that (you) don't know how stable the geological plates were below us. But nothing happened, so it was good."

-- New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick applauds God for not bringing about the End of Days during the Patriots' Mexico road trip. (Dale and Holley Show, WEEI)

NOT EXACTLY HOW THEY DREW IT UP

"That would have been a really good call if we made it. We saw what we wanted to do. Terrific opportunity, right where we wanted it. Defensive tackle made the better play ... he wasn't supposed to be there."

-- Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll tries to rationalize the questionable fake field goal run by his team on Monday Night Football. (NFL.com)

THIS WEEK IN SOCIAL MEDIA

THE BROWNS CAN CELEBRATE SOMETHING

FROM ONE KICKER TO ANOTHER

-- Former Colts punter Pat McAfee welcomes Philadelphia Eagles linebacker-turned-kicker Kamu Grugier-Hill to the kicking brand.

MARTA, MARTA, MARTA

-- The Weather Channel missed out on a potentially great video of the demolition of the Georgia Dome due to the untimely yet on-time arrival of the local bus

WHOEVER SAID VONTAZE BURFICT WASN'T A GOOD SPORT?

-- Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict thanks Denver Broncos quarterback Brock Osweiler for sealing a Bengals win.

The McAffee video is funny, too, after a slow start.

Are we sure Desmond King didn't originally post dozens of variations of "I'll return my first INT past the 50" and "my first pick will be in overtime, baby!", then he deleted all of them except the one that actually happened? Some clever bastard fooled the world with that trick last world cup final

I've escaped the pit of misery and brought back some bud lite. Dilly Dilly.
