Esiason seems to have a long history of disrespecting Peyton. This is just one of the negative things that Esiason has brought up every since he became an announcer. I think he has always been jealous of Peyton because Peyton has found success where "Boomer" didn't.
"He's the smartest human I've ever talked to" [referring to QB Andrew Luck]. Understatement of the year.
"What job would you rather have than being a kicker?"
[The implication being that their job is overrated & they get way too much money for what they do. It's cool that Pat understands that his position isn't as violent as a LB though. He can keep his role on the team in perspective. It's a vital role sure, but not say the lynch pin role to victory in a lot of games.]
"Denver's like Amsterdam now."
[No, not quite Holland & Colorado are not the same in terms of access to narcotics & the anti-stigma attached to it in Europe. Not even close.]
"I have a dad body. If we were by a pool & you didn't know who I was, & you said who here plays in the NFL? I'd be selected around 950 out of a thousand people."
[ I love Pat McAfee's ability to poke fun at himself. It humanizes him & makes him beloved among the NFL masses.]
"Dungy is a fraud" [[Are you serious? Just because a man is pious & a good man he's not authentic? Please.]
"I'm getting old. I'm 28." [What? That's crazy. Kickers don't take a beating physically year after year.]
"I'm not well known outside of INDY...I can't even get into the NFL Honors Show despite my nomination to receive a Salute To Service Award." [Come on Pat. Everybody loves you dude & you are well known across the league.]
"Bill Polian another guy I'm not a huge fan of" [Who dislikes a HOF GM with 3 different franchises? The person in the plaid shirt on the coach is an odd & misguided fellow.]
That Jonathan Williams to me is an every down back to be honest. In some ways he reminds me of Edgerrin James with a little more burst. And oddly enough he wears the same number. Of the 2 Arkansas backs Williams is the guy I would be targeting if I wanted to select a back from that school. I think he'd go good with Gore. Add Varga or maybe even Robinson to that mix and I think we have a solid trio.
Collins kind of reminds me of Matt Jones from the Redskins. He seems like the bruiser between the tackles kind of guy in the RBBC. I think the other back Williams from Arkansas is what we would need to team with Gore if we chose to select a back though.
