Panthers DT Kris Jenkins on beating the defending Super Bowl champion Buccaneers 27-24 to give Carolina a 7-2 record and send Tampa Bay to a 4-5 record in a game that featured trash-talking, taunting and flaring on-field tempers: “I'll say it: I can't stand them. When they pull on their red and we pull on our blue, it's like the Bloods and the Crips. They talk too much, they want to flash ‘I'm a superstar.' Well, now that talk don't mean nothing.”
Birth of a big rivalry. With Vick completly healthy next year and Aaron Brooks & co, NFC South will probably be the toughest division next year.

He played awesome. Doug Flutie, he's just amazing. He's unbelievable.”.”
It is easy to say that after that stellar performance by Flutie. That was magic.

Thats the way men( Fred Taylor) seperate from the boys(Chad Johnson, Keyshaw Johnson). Let your performance speak for yourself not your mouth. It is a football performance that matters. It is not a elocution competition.

He's taken such a beating in the papers, and coach (Steve) Spurrier's taken a beating. Hopefully they can get a good night's rest tonight.”.”
The Coles tackle on Koren Robinson was great. Too bad Spurrier was benched to actually help Redskins win, good move.
Guttpuppy wrote:Raiders WR Jerry Rice on getting only four catches for 41 yards in Oakland’s 27-24 overtime loss to the Jets that dropped the defending AFC champions to 2-7, their worst start since 1964: “The coaches have to give you the opportunity. I haven't had the opportunities this year. It's just unfortunate. I have a hard time dealing with it.”
Second attack on Bill Callahan..Looks like he is really losing his team.
Guttpuppy wrote:Titans head coach Jeff Fisher on his team’s dominating 31-7 win against the Dolphins that left Tennessee at 7-2 and tied with Indianapolis atop the AFC South: “I guess the race is on as far as the players are concerned.”
It Mvp Nair against the rest of the league.
