Default Squirrel on a Freeway!

Just heard on great line on the Tirico & Van Pelt show from ESPN Radio.

They were discussing the Clowns decision to start Quinn tonight against the Broncos. One of them said it was probably good to start him against a weaker defense as opposed to throwing him in there against the Steelers.

Then the other guy said that throwing him in against the Steelers would be like putting a squirrel on the freeway. You're just dodging back and forth while there's trucks coming at ya from every direction.

I was at John Elway's first ever NFL game against Pittsburgh. Before Steve DeBerg replaced him in the second half to lead a comeback victory, the scenario you described above was just that.

Best football analogy ever came from Jay Moore. Back in the mid 90's when Heath Schuler (I believe) was making his first start Jay said that, "Heath is down in Washington sweatin' like Mike Tyson at a spelling bee."

I've never heard that topped since.

Woodley is more like a truck that drives as fast as a Ferrari.
