"Haven't you seen Boyz N The Hood? Now one of us is going to get shot." For some reason, this line jumped to mind after Kam Chancellor just destroyed Todd Heap in the 1st quarter. The fact that this was a penalty was a travesty. But you did get the feeling that some of the Arizona guys would have taken Kam out if they could have. Thankfully it worked the other way and that hit served as a catalyst for very hard-nosed play by the Hawks defense all day.
"Our baby's all grown up." This award can go to both Kam Chancellor and Sidney Rice. Just excellent play from both of them. Plus, Sidney Rice's performance got everyone a free donut at Top Pot.
"Y'know, it's not so much me as Roenick; he's good." To Chris Clemmons. While you never want to compare anybody to the original Tecmo Bowl Lawrence Taylor, Chris Clemmons was having a Taylor-esque performance yesterday despite being held, having hands in his face mask, or being plain tackled on just about every play.
"How many strokes? I don't know. Eight or Nine. I'll give you an eight. What'd you get? An eight.
Looks like we're in a dead heat after one hole. This is turning into quite a rivalry." Can't help but think of Mike and Rob's game on a par-3 course on the same level as that game yesterday and the NFC West as a whole. While the whole division is one big pile of suck, I find some entertainment in the whole thing. More than likely, every team will be mathematically alive for the division title in Week 15. It'll be so much fun to listen to the whining and hand-wringing of the national media in Week 17 surrounding the home game that the NFC West division winner will get in the first round of the playoffs.
"You're so money and you don't even know it!" While Trent was serious when he said this to Mike, I'm using this in the sarcastic fashion aimed squarely at Jay Feely. He returned to his house of horrors (see Giants at Seahawks, November 2005) and chopped underneath the ball on a 49 yard try to tie the game coming up woefully short. Yeah, it was a little windy yesterday, but you know Seahawks Stadium was squarely inside the head of Feely.
