Snow takes Titans' 'manhood'
Time for the latest installment of our new Mondays-in-autumn tradition:
Making my TV p.r. friends feel appreciated by posting some highlights of the highlights they send me from their respective football studio shows.
NBC's Rodney Harrison on the Titans: "They flat-out quit. I've seen many teams comes to Gillette Stadium in November and December and quit. Because that snow, it's strong enough to take your manhood."
Fox's Michael Strahan on Jeremy Shockey facing the Giants: " Jeremy Shockey plays with a lot of pride and I’m sure he’d love to embarrass some of his old teammates and I’m sure some people upstairs."
CBS' Charley Casserly: "I talked to Randy Hanson this past week and he told me he's sticking to his story that [Raiders coach] Tom Cable punched him and said he was going to kill him."
NFL Network's Michael Irvin on the Giants (before the Giants-Saints game): "This is the next team that we use the word ‘dynasty’ around.”
ESPN's Ed Werder talked to the Saints' Darren Sharper, who said this about his success against Eli Manning:
The story of me and Eli goes back a long way. He was a quarterback in high school, and he had to be 17 or 18. But I knew he was Peyton’s brother, so I said this might be a guy I see later down the road so I started to do a little scouting back then, watching his mannerisms and seeing what he likes to do when he throws the football. Just so happens it’s worked out well for me. I started my scouting on Eli when he was in high school. Not too many guys can say that.”
