Week 9 (Nov. 8, 2009) – Quotable from NFL GameDay Final
& NFL GameDay Highlights on NFL Network
(Airs Sundays at 7:30 PM ET & 11:30 PM ET)
“Last year the New Orleans Saints defense was terrible. But you add just one guy – Darren Sharper. He is the difference.”
— Deion Sanders on New Orleans defense and Sharper, who is tied for the NFL lead with seven interceptions
“If you can go by land or by air like the Bengals can, it can give guys like Ray Lewis and Ed Reed headaches.” – Michael Irvin on the Bengals offense having the upper hand over the Ravens defense for the second time this season
“They controlled the ball for 40 minutes. That means that Joe Flacco is just sitting over there on the bench.”
— Steve Mariucci on Bengals offensive performance in win over Ravens
“I am officially off the Giants bandwagon.” – Deion Sanders after the Giants lost their fourth consecutive game
“He’s going to be a superstar in this league.” – Michael Irvin on Giants WR Hakeem Nicks, who leads all rookies with 407 receiving yards
“This is a quality win for the Cowboys after losing 44-6 last year in Philly. They were balanced on offense. On defense they kept away from allowing the big play to DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin and made Donovan McNabb earn every yard.”
– Steve Mariucci on Dallas’ victory over Philadelphia
“He looks like the 2008 model.”
— Deion Sanders on Falcons RB Michael Turner, who rushed for 166 yards and two touchdowns vs. Redskins
“For a big man, he’s got so much speed plus great vision.”
— Steve Mariucci on Falcons RB Michael Turner
“In his first career start the Bucs dressed Josh Freeman up like Steve DeBerg.”
— Rich Eisen on rookie QB Josh Freeman and the Bucs wearing the team’s classic orange uniforms against Green Bay
“They’ve got to wear them next game.” – Deion Sanders on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers getting their first win of the season in classic uniforms
“Talk about a throwback. Here’s Ahman Green running the ball for the Packers.”
– Rich Eisen on Green rushing against Tampa Bay, which was wearing its classic uniforms. Green rejoined the Packers this season after playing for the club from 2000-06.
“The Boss is back.” – Rich Eisen on Giants TE Kevin Boss, who had an eight-yard touchdown reception vs. Chargers
“How did he come out of there?” – (in unison) Deion Sanders and Michael Irvin on Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew breaking through numerous defenders for a nine-yard touchdown run
