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 15 below…
“Keep our Rams! Keep our Rams!” – Throngs of St. Louis Rams’ fans, attending this season’s final home game, which could be the Rams’ last game in St. Louis if they move to Los Angeles in the offseason, as rumored.
“We have two games to prove that we belong here. That’s every coach, every player, everybody. And that’s just the reality of the business.” – Bills coach Rex Ryan, on his team’s wholly disappointing season.
“Truth be told we shouldn’t have been in that situation. It was a big stadium, but it wasn’t a big team, you feel me? We should have beaten them a lot more than what we did. We made that game too close.” – Jets DL Sheldon Richardson, on a close call vs. the Cowboys.
“We’ve won three in a row. It doesn’t matter how you win ’em. The fact of the matter is, we’ve found a way to win.” – Packers OG T.J. Lang, on the team’s win over Oakland.
“We’ve had about 45 quarterbacks the last two years.” – Texans DL J.J. Watt, on recently signed QB Brandon Weeden coming through with a big win vs. Indianapolis.
“You have two alpha males out there. . .I don’t think they’re gonna be playing patty cake.” – Panthers QB Cam Newton on the battle between CB Josh Norman and Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr.
“We’re a team. That’s what teams do. They pick each other up.” – Bengals DE Michael Johnson, on winning with backup QB A.J. McCarron.
“We have to find a way to play winning football. If you’re a young player, and you want to stay in this league, you have to have a team that understands how to play winning football. The Chiefs understand that. The Ravens have not gotten there this year, yet. We’ll keep fighting to get there.” – Ravens coach John Harbaugh, after losing to the Chiefs, coached by his former boss, Andy Reid.
“I don’t got no words to say.” – Dolphins RB Lamar Miller, after an embarrassing loss to the Chargers.
“I want these guys to be here next year. I want to have these receivers and the people that we have on this roster on the staff, so we can go through the spring and not have to learn what this call is and this play and be able to go through a spring and have some of the continuity, so it definitely would be a luxury for sure.” – Browns QB Johnny Manziel, showing Browns coach Mike Pettine a lot more consideration than he deserves.
“Number one it’s bullshit. Number two it’s insulting.” – Broncos QB Peyton Manning, angrily denying a report that he refused to act as a backup to Brock Osweiler.

It’s almost 2016. How do we not have. . .flying cars.
In 2016, I’d be good if I never heard the word. . .Bae.
