The Times' NFL columnist sorts through the best of what was said.

September 29, 2009|Sam Farmer

A common response to questions after NFL games is, "I have to wait to see the film." Times NFL writer Sam Farmer sorts through the best of Monday's film review:

Jim Zorn, Redskins coach, whose team became the first to lose to the Detroit Lions since December 2007:

"In the big picture things are

progressing. We're getting better."

::

Bill Ford Jr., vice chairman of the Lions, on the end of the 19-game losing streak:

"I don't have a voice left. I was screaming as hard as I possibly could."

::

John Herrera, Raiders executive, on quarterback-turned-analyst Rich Gannon failing to get to Oakland in time for a production meeting at the team's facility last week. The club attempted to ban its former captain from the building because of his critical comments about the Raiders:

"This was a win-win for us."

::

Mike Singletary, 49ers coach, on how to deal with losing on a Brett Favre touchdown pass with two seconds left:

"All I know is right now, you come back and do you dwell on that? I think you're man enough to take it, you're man enough to chew on it, to spit it out and you learn from it."

::

John Harbaugh, Ravens coach, on Sunday's coaching matchup against Bill Belichick:

"The good thing about the game is that the coaches won't be

lining up and teeing off on each other

during the game. I don't think anybody would pay to see that right now. I'd like to think I'd have the edge, though."

::

Brad Childress, Vikings coach, on his team's playing host Sunday to Brett Favre's old team, the Green Bay Packers:

"It won't be crazy in here. The place won't be vibrating or anything like that. We just kind of go about our business and see what they are doing schematically and they play off of. I'm sure they are going to do the very same thing. . . . All the rivalry stuff, that will take care of itself."

::

Terrell Owens, on Twitter, after hearing NBC's Rodney Harrison made some critical comments about him Sunday night:

"Hey Rodney! Send me sum steroids 2

the Bills facility next week!"
