NFL GameDay Highlights & NFL GameDay Final on NFL Network
(Sundays at 7:30 & 11:30 PM ET)
“We need to stop measuring him in normal terms because he’s a winner. Let’s just measure him in that aspect.”
— Deion Sanders on Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow, who is 6-1 as a starter this season
“Up until now I, probably like a lot of people, [was] waiting for Tebow to falter. Well, he just keeps getting better every week. Yes he’s running option, yes the defense is playing well but he’s starting to throw the football from the pocket like a typical NFL quarterback right now. I like the job [offensive coordinator] Mike McCoy is doing with him because I see progress with his quarterbacking skills.”
— Steve Mariucci on Tim Tebow
“I feel like he’s turning the corner, but he’s turning the corner with an 18-wheeler. With an 18-wheeler you have to get wide when you turn that thing.”
— Deion Sanders on New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez
“He’s the go-to guy for that team. Big play down the field, short routes – he runs everything. A complete receiver.”
— Deion Sanders on Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown
“It all goes back to defense. We could talk about the running game – it’s not what it once was back in the glory days of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They have so many receivers. But it all boils down to the defense…Number one in the league defensively – that’s the Pittsburgh Steelers we know and love.”
— Deion Sanders on the 9-3 Pittsburgh Steelers
“The Green Bay Packers, they’re undefeated but they haven’t played a full game yet. What I mean by that – offensively, defensively, as well as special teams all playing as one. They haven’t played that way yet…They haven’t played their best game, and that’s scary.”
— Deion Sanders on the undefeated Green Bay Packers
“The way they played this last game can propel them to that roll right on like they did in 2007. You have to give them credit because they showed up today.”
— Michael Irvin on the New York Giants in a 38-35 loss to the Green Bay Packers
“It’s a great thing for us. We knew coming into this game we were going to come against some adversity. We did that. This is a good team and we were playing in their hostile environment. We knew they were going to give us their best punch but we punched back.”
— Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings to NFL Network’s Randy Moss on whether a close game on the road was something they needed
“The defense isn’t the same defense that got them to two previous AFC Championship Games…The physicality of the Jets isn’t the same.”
— Deion Sanders on the 7-5 New York Jets
“The Cowboys could be 11-1. They could also have only five wins because they’re so up and down. They play to the level of their competition. They have to get their act together and play like they can play.”
— Steve Mariucci on the 7-5 Dallas Cowboys, who lost to the Arizona Cardinals in overtime
“Whoever wins this division, honestly you’re just playing to see who is lunch meat for the Green Bay Packers.”
— Deion Sanders on the NFC East
“It almost looks like their trying to be a tough team, and that’s a good thing. But it also looks like maybe they’re a little frustrated right now.”
— Steve Mariucci on the Detroit Lions
“Being tough, being physical is a mental thing. It’s a mindset and I love coach [Jim] Schwartz and what he’s trying to do is set the tone, set the example; we’re not going to have it in this house, we’re not going to have people come in and push us around. But you have to stop short of doing ignorant, crazy things to cost your teams penalties.”
— Michael Irvin on the Detroit Lions, who committed 11 penalties in the loss to the New Orleans Saints
“He’s a return specialist, he’s a running back, he’s a slot receiver, he’s a wide receiver – he’s everything.”
— Deion Sanders on the Vikings’ Percy Harvin
