He Said What?! The Best NFL quotes of week 10
The Broncos are frustrated; the 49ers are feeling good; and it was a positive weekend for a couple of defensive linemen.
The Broncos are a frustrated group and defensive end Derek Wolfe was very descriptive while summing up the team's frustrations following Sunday's blowout loss to the Patriots.
While the Broncos may be unhappy, the 49ers are feeling good; Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett is out for revenge; and it was a good weekend for a couple of defensive linemen.
Here's the latest edition of "He Said What?!"
— Wolfe on the Broncos following Sunday's 41-16 loss to the Patriots: "It’s like we’re a whole new f****** team. It is embarrassing. I am tired of being embarrassed... It’s real sad. It’s sad we went from being a championship calibre team to a team that stinks. Nobody respects us."
— Bennett on his release from the Packers: "After trying to get it fixed and getting waived, you've got that vengeance in your heart like, 'All right, that's how you're going to do it? F*** it, let's go ball."
— 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan on getting his first victory as a head coach: "I've gotten that monkey off my back now. Now I have to get a second one, and that will be another monkey."
— Giants coach Ben McAdoo on the loss to the previously winless 49ers: "The thing that was disappointing that showed up on film is the desire to finish on a consistent basis. There were plays we were capable of making and the desire to finish wasn’t consistent... We're disappointed, but determined. We're all in this thing together as coaches, as players, and I'm not here to throw anyone under the bus today, whether it's a coach, whether it's a player."
— Falcons defensive end Adrian Clayborn on his six sacks in Sunday's 27-7 win over the Cowboys: "I'm no Everson Griffen or somebody like that, my pass rush isn't as good as [his]. But I play the same way every game. It lucked out for me today. I only have one move and it works."
— Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott on Sunday's loss to the Falcons: "We got our a**** kicked... That’s what happened in Denver. We got better from it. We'll get better from this one as well."
— Saints defensive lineman Sheldon Rankins on his interception and sack against the Bills: "It was a great day to be me."
— Texans coach Bill O'Brien on turning things around after three straight losses: "The way that I was brought up in coaching is I never worked for or played for a successful coach that pointed fingers. I think the thing that I've always tried to do is look in the mirror... You're not a coach worth your salt if you just stand up here and blame players. That's not going to get you anywhere and that’s not going to get the team improved."
— Panthers tackle Matt Kalil after setting a franchise record with 548 yards in Monday's 45-21 win over the Dolphins: "I would love to do that every week. That'd be awesome."
