NFL GameDay Highlights & NFL GameDay Final on NFL Network
(Sundays at 7:30 & 11:30 PM ET)
“I’ve always said that hope dictates effort. When you talk about defense and you talk about [Tim] Tebow, he gives that defense just that: hope. [The defense] has improved its effort tremendously.”
— Michael Irvin on the Denver Broncos, who have won four consecutive games
“We’re focused on tomorrow and we’re missing today with Tebow. People are saying he can’t go to the playoffs like that – he just won. Last week, he can’t win again like that – he just won. We’re so focused on what he can’t do we’re missing today what he is doing.”
— Deion Sanders on Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow, who improved to 5-1 as a starter this season
“He’s getting better as a passer right before our eyes. This is such a fun story because it’s so unique. We haven’t seen this before. Of all of the option quarterbacks that have come into the league, they move them to receiver, or you play Wildcat, or you go play defense. Here is a team that’s playing option football – you’ve got to be kidding me – and the kid is winning games.”
— Steve Mariucci on Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow, who threw for 188 yards and one touchdown in Denver’s 16-13 overtime victory
“Put his name on the [Defensive] Rookie of the Year trophy already.”
— Deion Sanders on Broncos linebacker Von Miller
“A poor man’s Marshall Faulk. He’s going to be a rich man soon though.”
— Deion Sanders on Eagles running back LeSean McCoy, who scored his 11th rushing touchdown of the season
“It just seems like when those big moments come up and Sanchez needs to make a play, he steps up and makes his own plays. He did it again today, he did it last year, he did it in the playoffs in beating Tom Brady, beating Peyton Manning – making certain plays in crucial times. And he did it again today.”
— Michael Irvin on Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez
“Today was a microcosm of his season: he started off early in the game and he threw that bad pick. Rather than blinking and getting down on himself, keep playing the game; there was a lot of football left to play. He ends up throwing four touchdown passes, he ends up putting a two-minute drill together to go on and win that tight game at the end.”
— Steve Mariucci on Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez, who threw four touchdown passes in the win over the Buffalo Bills
“You fumble the punt, you give up six and your former teammate beats you. That’s a trifecta right there. That has to hurt.”
— Deion Sanders on Jets defensive back Antonio Cromartie fumbling a punt and giving up a touchdown to former Jets wide receiver Brad Smith
“They’ve got some decisions to make because this is a playoff team with two banged up quarterbacks. They’ve got to find an answer because they must go to the playoffs.”
— Steve Mariucci on the first-place Houston Texans after losing quarterback Matt Leinart to an injury
“When you have [Arian] Foster and [Ben] Tate, Andre Johnson, Owen Daniels and some of these guys, it really doesn’t take a lot to quarterback this team. I like Jeff Garcia. I like that move – he’s a savvy veteran, he knows this offense, he knows this system. I think he can pay dividends for this team and get them to where they need to go.”
— Deion Sanders on the Houston Texans
“They’re in total disarray – offensively, defensively, special teams. I can’t even put my finger on it.”
— Deion Sanders on the 4-7 Philadelphia Eagles
“There aren’t enough Julian Edelmans on the Philadelphia Eagles – those glue-type players.”
— Rich Eisen
“We all want to be known for something, and I want him to be known as this dominant ferocious beast that plays the defensive line, not someone who’s doing ignorant things outside of the whistles. He’s a tremendous kid; I think he needs to refocus himself back on the game of football, and go outside of the game and get some real advice and some real counsel, and tell him the truth.”
— Deion Sanders on Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh
