Packers receiver Davante Adams on the controversial pass interference calls that went against his team in the 34-23 loss to the Falcons: Nobody gets called on that like we do. But it is what it is. The rule is just it’s a judgment call for the refs. We didn’t violate anything, so that should have been four more points on the scoreboard. At the end of the day, it’s up to them and they’ll come and talk to us in the offseason about how they messed up on certain calls and things. That’s part of the game. We can’t be the ref. If we could, then it would have been called a little bit better on that.
Chargers coach Anthony Lynn on Koo: We’re still riding with him. And we’re hoping that he’ll bounce back.
Bengals backup quarterback AJ McCarron on Dalton: Do you think he wants to have tipped balls that turn into interceptions? Has he worked his whole life for that, has he worked all week for that? No… Listen, I think I’m a great quarterback and I think he’s an unbelievable quarterback, I love him to death, but he’s our quarterback, stop making it into something else.
Briscoe aced the tryout, ultimately set a Broncos rookie record with 14 touchdown passes in only five starts (Joe Namath threw 15 that year in 14 starts) and then wasn’t even allowed to compete for the starting job the next year. A quarterback since his Pop Warner days, Briscoe was forced to leave Denver and switch to wide receiver, a position he’d never played, because of the color of his skin. He became a star receiver for the Buffalo Bills and a two-time champion with the Miami Dolphins.
Athletes were always supposed to be barefoot and pregnant in my time, Briscoe said. We weren’t supposed to express our views outside of going on the field and playing football.
