Dan Steinberg of the DC Sports Bog has a funny post about Redskins coach Jim Zorn's "worthless tricks," like juggling, twirling, spinning the ball, etc. The post includes some quotes from Colt Brennan.
"It's like all this old-school Harlem Globetrotters type stuff they used to do back in the old days probably," Colt Brennan joked. "We as young kids, we really don't know how to do it like he does, because we've got too much rhythm."
"They see it," Zorn said of his pupils. "They're jealous of me."
Brennan, though, said he does his own share of Worthless Tricks, dropping the ball and catching it with the same hand, then dropping it again and swooping his hand around the ball before catching it again from above.
"He's always trying to show off, he's always trying to show he still has it," Brennan said. "And he does. To give him credit, he kind of does."Davone Bess talks about his admiration for the Chargers' Darren Sproles in this Palm Beach Post article:
But Sproles - 5-foot-6 and 181 pounds - has stepped out of the shadow of 2006 MVP LaDanian Tomlinson to become one of the NFL's most exciting playmakers.
Dolphins rookie wide receiver Davone Bess has been watching. Bess, generously listed at 5-foot-10 and 195 pounds, pulls for the little guys around the league.
"You can't take his size into account," Bess said. "He plays much bigger than his size. He's one of the players I admire around this league."
"He gives me all the confidence in the world to actually know guys at our size can achieve," Bess said. "I just take everything he does on the field and try to carry it over to my game."And Pisa Tinoisamoa talks about what new Rams head coach Jim Haslett brings to the team.
``Things have changed around here, so I would say that it was different,'' linebacker Pisa Tinoisamoa said. ``In some good ways.''
Tinoisamoa said the Rams are back to leaning on their speed on defense after straying earlier in the year.
``We've got to use that as an asset,'' he said. ``This is our identity and it's a good feeling. We've got to swarm.''
