It's the midpoint of the NFL's 2022 regular season, and there's been just as much talk off the field as action on it. Here are some of the best jokes, trash talk and quotes in general from an exciting first half.
'This is going to be a 24 to 20 type of game'
CBS announcer Tony Romo, the former Dallas Cowboys quarterback (and possible psychic), during the first quarter of Week 6's game between the Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs. The Bills ended up winning the game 24-20.
'Rain, sleet, or snow -- the Eagles train to go!'
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts, in a postgame speech after the team's victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 4. The Eagles were, at the time, the only undefeated team remaining in the NFL -- and they still are.
'It's a combination of Mrs. Doubtfire and Jason from Halloween ...'
'I heal quick ... I don't know if it's Wolverine blood or what.'
'On the final play, you gotta run the ball. Man, I wish I had Marshawn [Lynch] up here. Like, 1 yard. You need 1 yard. Run the ball. Run the ball!'
Richard Sherman, on the postgame show for the Denver Broncos' 12-9 loss to the Indianapolis Colts on "Thursday Night Football" in Week 5, where his former Seattle Seahawks teammate Russell Wilson failed to convert on a short down after going into the shotgun. Sherman was on the sidelines, watching in horror, when the Seahawks didn't give the ball to Marshawn Lynch in Super Bowl XLIX against the New England Patriots. Wilson threw an interception to Malcolm Butler, and the Seahawks lost.
'What do I look like? A doctor? An orthopedic surgeon? ... Day by day.'
'Nah. It's just the first time they caught me doing it.'
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase, on a photo of him giving the finger to Pittsburgh Steelers safety Minkah Fitzpatrick in Week 2, when asked if he'd ever done something like that before.
