"Boy, that escalated quickly...I mean, that really got out of hand fast." After scratching and clawing out of a 16-point hole at halftime, the Hawks got to within 2 points and then almost as fast as Brick killed the guy with a trident, Ted Ginn, Jr. runs back a couple kicks and put the game out of reach.
"I love scotch. Scotchy, scotch, scotch. Here it goes down, down into my belly". Pretty much the only way to watch that game. I prefer mine with a splash of water to bring out the flavor.
"You stay classy San Diego. I'm Ron Burgundy? Dammit, for the last time, anything you write on the Teleprompter, Burgundy will read!!" I got the feeling watching that game that this applied to Dick Stockton. In the first half alone, I counted at least 10 times where Stockton was at least 5 yards off on the down and distance call or didn't know how many yards a penalty was. Maybe I only noticed it because I was trying to distract myself from that offensive performance in the first half, but it was pretty bad. Then again, it's not like they send out the #1 announce teams for NFC West showdowns.
"You dirtbags have been in third place for five years." The Niners have been playing this role to rave reviews over the years, but if performances like this show up too many more times this year, the Hawks will indeed be in dead place. Let's just hope nobody gets their arms chopped off.
"Hit 'em in the uvula!" With the new rules the NFL put in place, I'm not sure we can do that this year. However, at times it would have been nice to see Kam Chancellor give it a shot. We know James Harrison will test those waters when the Hawks go visit a very angry bunch of Steelers this week.
"Great Odin's Raven! Sweet Grandmother's Spatula! By the Beard of Zeus! Hot Pot of Coffee!" Watching that game, I pretty much ran out of expletives, so I had to get creative.
