We know the NFL is full of characters and one-liners. So each week, we’re going to scout the post-game press conferences to find the best reactions for your reading pleasure. Check out the NFL’s best quotes from Week 13 below…
“I don’t have the words to explain this.” – Lions S Glover Quin, after watching a 60+ yard Hail Mary completion by the Packers to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.
“Who wants a touchdown?” – Bucs QB Jameis Winston, to his teammates in the huddle, right before throwing the game winning touchdown.
“I’m happily married to one woman. I love my wife, Michi Marshall, and I will fight to the end for her. So there you go baby. He’s 500 pounds and I went after him for you.” – Jets WR Brandon Marshall, after complaining that Giants DL Cullen Jenkins had crossed the line by trash talking about Marshall’s “girl.”
“I actually feel like I hit it perfectly, it just didn’t go through.” – Ravens K Justin Tucker, on his 55 yard game losing miss.
“Everyone felt like he was going to miss. Guys were taking bets on the sideline. ‘I’ve got $20 he going to miss it.’” – 49ers WR Anquan Boldin, on usually reliable Bears K Robbie Gould’s 36 yard miss that would have been the game winner.
“It’s a dagger, it’s a dagger. They have bigger personnel, so you should expect run. They took a shot and obviously caught us by surprise.” – Texans LB Brian Cushing, on the Texans’ defense misread that led to Buffalo’s game clinching 40 yard touchdown pass.
“He was fired up today. I’d never seen him like that in front of everybody. ‘Play with a fire! Play angry! Go out there and let it rip!’ It’s probably something built up over the years.” Eagles LT Jason Peters, on the inspirational pregame talk given by Eagles owner Jeff Lurie, before the Eagles went out and upset the Patriots. Lurie is originally from New England and tried to buy the Patriots before he bought the Eagles.
“Besides my Madden team, I have never been on a team like this.” – Broncos DE Malik Jackson. The Broncos must be hoping Jackson’s Madden team was hella good.
“The 16-0 thing isn’t important to this team as much as getting that first seed. I think home-field advantage is a big deal for us and that’s what we’re going to be working for, not the 16-0.” – Panthers C Ryan Kalil, showing that the Panthers’ heads aren’t in the clouds.
“We’ve gotten used to it, unfortunately.” – Chargers QB Philip Rivers, on chants of “Let’s Go Broncos” coming from the San Diego stands during Sunday’s loss.
“I don’t know if waiting is the word. I think we’ve been working toward it.” – Seahawks TE Luke Wilson, being asked if the Seahawks’ blowout win over Minnesota was what the team “had been waiting for.”
“Losing in embarrassing fashion five games in a row, guys in here are not happy. I can guarantee you that. That does not make it OK. That doesn’t make it OK at all. We’re getting what we deserve. There is no need to be shocked. We’re all grown men in here. When we’re playing like this, this is what the outcome is.” – Rams DE Chris Long. But tell us how you really feel, Chris?
“It just sucks when you don’t win.” – Raiders TE Lee Smith. The Raiders didn’t win.
