NFL GameDay Final on NFL Network
(Airs Sundays at 11:30 PM ET)
“Had he started at the beginning of the season, this may be a whole other team right now.”
— Deion Sanders on Cleveland Browns QB Colt McCoy, who has led the Browns to victories over the New Orleans Saints and New England Patriots in two of his four starts
“When he plays well, he can beat anybody. Today he was on target.”
— Steve Mariucci on Jacksonville Jaguars QB David Garrard, who passed for 342 yards and two touchdowns in the Jaguars win over the Houston Texans
“Something’s wrong there. They haven’t put it together because defensively they’re giving up points and this [was] the No. 1 defense a year ago?”
— Deion Sanders on the New York Jets after an overtime win over the Cleveland Browns
“All quarterbacks are directors because they direct the offense. [He] is a leader, and that’s the difference between good and great.”
— Michael Irvin on New England QB Tom Brady, who passed for 350 yards and three touchdowns in the Patriots win over the Pittsburgh Steelers
“He hit nine different receivers today. You give Jay Cutler time, he can make the plays.”
— Deion Sanders on Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler, who passed for 237 yards and three touchdowns in the Bears win over the Minnesota Vikings
“A lot of people thought he lost it a few years ago. He didn’t lose his ability; he lost the playmakers in front of him creating a lane.”
— Deion Sanders on Chicago Bears return specialist Devin Hester, who had a 68-yard kickoff return and a 42-yard punt return to give the Bears great field position in their 27-13 win over Minnesota
“Absolutely not. As long as these guys are mathematically in it, you have to leave Brett Favre on the football field because you’ve done so much to go after Brett Favre. You take him off the football field without being mathematically eliminated, you’re echoing to your team ‘give up.’”
— Michael Irvin on whether the Minnesota Vikings should bench QB Brett Favre
“They put all their eggs in one basket. They recruited Brett (Favre) to come back and they paid him an awful lot of money to do this, so they’re going to try to ride this horse as long as they can as long as they’re mathematically in the playoff chase.”
— Steve Mariucci on the possibility of the Minnesota Vikings benching QB Brett Favre
“Here is where you see the difference with Jason Garrett and Wade Phillips. That was energy from the Cowboys.”
— Michael Irvin on the Dallas Cowboys performance beating the New York Giants
“They’re more consistent than most teams in the league.”
— Steve Mariucci on the Atlanta Falcons
“Heart and soul of this football team.”
— Michael Irvin on Pittsburgh Steelers WR Hines Ward
“This is a team that doesn’t settle for just being average; they want to be the best.”
— Michael Irvin on the New England Patriots beating the Pittsburgh Steelers one week after losing to the Cleveland Browns
“I think the firing of Wade Phillips woke this team up.”
— Deion Sanders on the Dallas Cowboys’ win over the New York Giants
“Power, speed, he’s got it all.”
— Steve Mariucci on St. Louis Rams RB Steven Jackson, who rushed for 81 yards and a touchdown in the Rams’ overtime loss to the San Francisco 49ers
“I love a kid that gets a second chance, and this guy is doing the most with his opportunity in the NFL.”
— Deion Sanders on Tampa Bay rookie RB LeGarrette Blount, who rushed for 91 yards and a touchdown in the Buccaneers win over the Carolina Panthers
“I never had a home and the Falcons extended the invitation to me to make me feel welcome, and that is my home.”
— Deion Sanders on being inducted into the Atlanta Falcons’ Ring of Honor on Thursday night

Michael Irvin: New York Giants
Deion Sanders: Atlanta Falcons
Steve Mariucci: Atlanta Falcons
