Is This How NFL Players’s Talk?

I say it all the time, called me crazy, but man I really hope that the chatter on the field in the NFL is better then this:

“They were cracking jokes,” Lions running back Kevin Smith said. “They thought we were a joke. They said we (stink). They were saying that to me, that I (stink). And I told them they (stink), too. And they said, ‘Well, not as bad as (you).’ And I said, ‘You’re right.’ (Because) we haven’t won one game.”

Come on!!! That is brutal. How old are these guys, that is the best they can do? Assume the word is “suck” if i guy on another team says to you hey “you guys suck” the best you can is “you guys suck too”???

This can’t be true, how sad if it is….

… and then admit the guy’s right that “we” suck worse.

That’s weak sauce.

I remember watching a video in high school that came with a Sports Illustrated subscription. I think it was called “Inside the NFL” and it was basically a bunch of on field footage where all the stuff the players said was miced.

Pretty much the whole thing was bleeped, but it was amazing to see the trash talking that goes on during the game. It was certainly better than the quote above.

Actually, there was one piece of very old footage from the 50’s or something and it was much cleaner, but hilarious. It was something like:

“Hey number fifty-seven that was a rotten thing to do. If you do that again number fifty-seven I’m going to sock you one.”

People really did talk like Leave it to Beaver characters back then.

Hi Todd:

I remember watching those inside the NFL video’s every Saturday with the guy with the awesome voice that Chris Berman tries to immitate all the time, yet the banter was a hell of a lot funnier on those shows then this crap….

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
