Emmitt Smith tells Pacman Jones how to follow what passes for the straight & narrow in the NFL:

"As long as you're not killing anybody, getting anybody shot at and going to jail, then I don't have any issues," said Smith, NFL career rushing leader. The former star running back for Dallas was visiting Cowboys rookie minicamp Saturday.

Glad to see the moral standards of the 90s Cowboys are being passed on to the next generation of Cowboys

I doubt Emmitt said that - after all, it's in English. I'm assuming ESPN did some translation from "Emmittspeak."

:dang: Dan, i was hoping you were kidding. but its obvious youre not.

so i have to side with 76's take that that couldnt possibly be coming out of the dancing with stars champions mouth.

i hope espn gets wise and fires this dumbass jagoff. michael irvin seems like a genius compared to him (and actually has a personality).

I'm surprised Emmitt didn't tell Pacman not to get "blowed up".

I doubt Emmitt said that - after all, it's in English. I'm assuming ESPN did some translation from "Emmittspeak."

Emmittspeak:


1) "My game-breaker go to Brett Favre." (Commentary: And my dictionary goes to Emmit Smith)

2) "And when defense felt my will, it was a total different game then." (Commentary: Scoring touchdowns? Easy. Using adverbs? Impossible.)

3) "This team have not played confident football in three weeks." (Commentary: I love it how Emmitt refuses to use contractions. Emmitt doesn't cut corners!)

4) "He gets the ball over to their third read than most quarterback can." (Commentary: I think Emmitt forgot a word here ...")

5) "He turn around and go deep on Dre' Bly" (Commentary: Career touchdowns, 175. Career rushing yards, 18,355. Career verbs conjugated, 0.)

6) "Brett Favre went into Dallas nine times and have a big goose egg." (Commentary: And I bet Emmitt had tons of big goose eggs on his grammar tests when he was in high school.)

7) "I love those style of play that the Tennessee Titans bring to the game." (Commentary: What a coincidence! I love those grammatical error that Emmitt bring to the Sunday NFL Countdown!)

8) "That offense does... do look good." (Commentary: He was actually about to say "That offense does look good," but changed what he said mid-sentence to "That offense do look good." I'm speechless. How can someone be so poor at grammar that they "un"-correct a statement? )

9) "He just need a runnin game to help him." (Commentary: And Emmitt just need Hooked on Phonics to help him.)

10) "I'm concerned about a guy who fall down before get hits." (Commentary: And I'm concerned about a guy who speak before he conjugate his verb and puts the "s" in the wrong place, but you don't see me making a big fuss over it.)

11) "Wes Worker is a possession receiver that make things happen." (Commentary: I don't care who "make" things happen, but who the heck is Wes Worker?)

12) "Norv Turner have a lot of experience in the playoff." (Commentary: When Emmitt uttered that statement, Norv Turner's postseason record was 1-1. Good thing we're talking about the playoff here, and not the playoffs.)

13) "Tom Brady is buyin' time for his lineman." (Commentary: And here I thought that offensive linemen were "buyin' time" for the quarterback. Lord knows if you hold on to the ball long enough, your linemen will eventually find SOMEONE to block...right? )

14) "The NFC West is probably one of the weakest... CONFERENCES... in the whole NFC. These guys over here, you have the Cardinals, you have the 49ers, you have the Seahawks, and you also have the Rams..." (Commentary: Thank God Emmitt's around, or else we'd forget which teams are in all the divisions... I mean... CONFERENCES.)

15) (On the Super Bowl) "The loss tonight... And the loss today is gonna hurt for a long time." (Commentary: So, apparently the Patriots lost to the Giants twice. Once at night, and once in the afternoon. Damn it, I only saw one of those games. If anyone recorded the second one..let me know)

16) "He was coming through line to make a move and got blind sided by Al Wi... Al Wi... Al Jackson." (Commentary: Don't bother searching for Al Jackson on NFL.com. He doesn't exist in real life - only in Emmitt's mind.)

17) "The leadership definitely have to come from the leaders." (Commentary: Wow, that's a really profound statement.)

18)"You have new offensive coordinator and defensive coordinator." (Commentary: That statement only works if you say it with a really cool Russian accent.)

19) "If it slip in Week 1, it slip in Week 8." (Commentary: I don't know what slip in Week 1, but clearly the same thing happened in Week 8. Let's just hope that when it slip in Week 15, the verb is actually conjugated.)

20) "You have to have the personality to match up with the Patriots." (Commentary: Just a hunch, but I think Emmitt means personnel; not personality. Unless, of course, he believes it takes a Capricorn who likes to take long walks on the beach to beat Tom Brady.)

21) "Not only does he have the NFC East record for touchdowns, but also the team record." (Commentary: Is it possible to have a divisional record that's not a team record? It's like saying, "Not only does Emmitt Smith have the World Record for grammatical errors per TV show, he also has the record for most grammatical errors per TV show in his family." More evidence that Emmitt is ahead of our time.)


22) "Last year there was a lot of things the Colts had to address. They couldn't stop the run... and all those... that was one of the biggest things they had to address." (Commentary: Brain fart, much?)

23) "The way you perform make them feel about you different." (Commentary: I think Emmitt's brain gathers the words he wants to use and rearranges them randomly.)

24) "I think it's his self-confidence in himself that make him so confident when it get down into the crunch time." (Commentary: So, in other words, his self-confidence in himself makes him confident. I guess that makes sense. Sure, you're saying the same thing three times, but who's counting?)

25) "They both can return kicks and punt return guys." (Commentary: I read this quote back 20 times in an attempt to figure out what the hell Emmitt was talking about. I didn't succeed, and making matters worse, my brain completely shut down and I drooled all over my shirt.)

If he gets fired by ESPN, I'm sure the Bengals organization would be happy to have him on board. He seems to be the perfect fit as a moral compass for the Bungles.
