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 14 below…


“In retrospect, I probably could have called something else or we could have kicked the field goal.” – Vikings coach Mike Zimmer, on passing up a 48 yard field goal try to run one more play to get closer which resulted in a game losing turnover.


“People thought this might be a trap game for the Jets. Not today.” – CBS announcer Kevin Harlan, fairly early in the Jets’ blowout win over Tennessee.


“These next three games, they’re kind of the start of our next season. We can use these games to start to develop the team that we’re going to put on the field for 2016.” – Ravens FB Kyle Juszczyk, saying “wait ‘til next year.”


“You don’t play football with your doggone mouth, you play with your pads.” – Bengals coach Marvin Lewis saying, in essence, that your play does the talking for you.


“I have nothing to say, excuse me.” – Bills RB LeSean McCoy, declining to speak to the media after the Bills’ loss to his former team, the Eagles.


“I don’t want to go out this kind of way. I don’t want to go out as a loser. Winning is the way, ideally, you want to go out. I want to make one more run at it, and then if it doesn’t work, be like, ‘OK.’ That’s just my feeling right now.” – Chargers TE Antonio Gates, announcing that he will return for at least one more season.


“I believe, right now, it’s our moment as Panthers.” – Carolina QB Cam Newton, after blowing out Atlanta to reach 13-0.


“I remember looking up there and thinking. . .{h}ow would somebody ever reach those numbers? So that part of it just makes me look back and realize how lucky I am, and how grateful I am to have this opportunity.” – Saints QB Drew Brees, on passing Dan Marino in all time touchdown passes.


“That was pretty funny. He said, ‘Send me a jersey.’ He thought it was pretty funny too and said that he just went with it. He asked me to send him a jersey so I’m going to send him a jersey.” – Seahawks CB Richard Sherman, responding to an incident in which rapper Waka Flocka Flame was mistaken for him by fans.

“Maybe we took them for granted. Maybe we took them lightly. Them having the record that they had coming into today’s game, maybe we did take them a little light. By us getting a win last week, maybe we got a little big headed this week and thought that things were just going to happen.” – 49ers LB Ahmad Brooks, admitting that the Blaine Gabbert-led 49ers were looking past an opponent.


“They bit on it just like a fish.” – Raiders TE Mychal Rivera, on the fake screen that used the Broncos pursuit against them and led to his 16 yard TD catch.



The Players Tribune asked contributors what’s in their DVR queue. Here’s what Lions WR Golden Tate had to say:

“Walter White is a boss, man. A boss. He’s super, super smart. And then his counterpart, Jesse Pinkman, is all naive at first, innocent, just trying to make a few bucks. But their relationship ends up going in all of these unpredictable directions. I won’t lie, it gets intense.”

I’m with you Golden. I’m a total Breaking Bad fan myself.
