NFL GameDay Highlights & NFL GameDay Final on NFL Network
(Sundays at 7:30 & 11:30 PM ET)
“We’re missing the whole point of how stable they are. They’re not giving up anything deep and nothing cheap. The Broncos defense allows Tim Tebow to work his magic in the later moments.”
— Deion Sanders on the Denver Broncos defense
“For a couple of quarters he doesn’t complete a pass, and all of sudden he has the hot hand and it’s Tebow time.”
— Steve Mariucci on Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow, who completed 18-of-24 passes in the fourth quarter and overtime after going 3-of-16 in first three quarters
“We’re putting too much emphasis on the three-and-a-half [quarters] and not enough on the fourth quarter because we keep saying how much longer can they do this? I don’t know what’s going on with those three-and-a-half quarters, but when those last few minutes come around, [Tim] Tebow and that team take on a whole different approach.”
— Michael Irvin on Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow, who registered his fifth comeback win in the fourth quarter this season
“Tim Tebow time affects all three phases, and somehow, some way turns the opposition into the Washington Generals.”
— Rich Eisen
“He’s got two starts, two wins and he’s got pressure on him because that’s the first place team – in fact it’s the number one seeded team in the AFC – and he just keeps winning. He had to do it in the clutch in Cincinnati against a very good defense.”
— Steve Mariucci on Houston Texans rookie quarterback T.J. Yates, who threw for 300 yards and two touchdowns as the team clinched the first playoff berth in franchise history
“They won the last three weeks with three different quarterbacks – they won again with T.J. Yates. The way they won will carry over into the next game because they found out T.J. Yates can make that last-second drive and win a game.”
— Michael Irvin on Houston Texans quarterback T.J. Yates, who won his second game in his second NFL start
“We don’t give him the credit that this guy deserves…He’s in New York, he’s taking all of the criticism, he’s another Manning – not Peyton, but he’s the other Manning. This kid Eli Manning has won a Super Bowl and he can lead this team to win the NFC East.”
— Deion Sanders on New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning, who threw for 400 yards and two touchdowns in the 37-34 victory over the Dallas Cowboys
“That guy never quits. You’ll see him on special teams, field goal rush, chasing down passers – you name it, he’s going.”
— Steve Mariucci on New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul
“He’s running with a purpose. He lost his job, he lost his momentum, lost probably some of the guys in the locker room believing in him because of [DeMarco] Murray’s prominence, but he came back with a vengeance.”
— Deion Sanders on Dallas Cowboys running back Felix Jones, who rushed for 106 yards
“I like it because he’s been held accountable. That speaks volumes to the rest of your teammates.”
— Deion Sanders on the sideline argument between New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien
“That’s the best tight end in the game right now.”
— Deion Sanders on New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham, who leads all tight ends with 1,101 receiving yards this season
“These two guys are the next generation of great tight ends. They’re big, they’re strong and they’re athletic.”
— Steve Mariucci on the New England Patriots’ Rob Gronkowski and the New Orleans Saints’ Jimmy Graham
“I talked to him this week. He got his head together, his mind together; he’s going to focus on his game and not his money.”
— Deion Sanders on Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson, who had 59 yards and one touchdown in the 26-10 win over the Miami Dolphins
“If Shonn Greene runs like this, the Jets have a chance. That’s physical running – that’s how the Jets should play football.”
— Michael Irvin on New York Jets running back Shonn Greene, who rushed for 129 yards and one touchdown in the 37-10 win over the Kansas City Chiefs
“When you can get a man that can catch an in route like that, get through a tackle and hit the house, that’s exactly why they gave up the picks. Julio Jones, he’s worth every pick they gave up.”
— Michael Irvin on Atlanta Falcons rookie wide receiver Julio Jones, who had 104 yards and two touchdowns in the 31-23 victory over the Carolina Panthers
