The Announcers Said What?!

We all saw the outcome of Sunday’s game. I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to put it behind me and move onward and upward! But first, a look back at what the announcers had to say. 

“He Came to Play”

What it means: The star of the game is performing splendidly, better so, than usual. He’s incredibly focused and isn’t messing around.

Why they said it: We’ve seen this one before. But the way Adrian Clayborn played, it’d be a crime not to give the man his due props. He set a new single-game sack record for a Cowboys’ opponent in sacks and also registered 2 forced fumbles, 1 fumble recovery, 3 tackles-for-loss, and 7 quarterback hurries. He had the game of his life.

What we thought of:

”They Couldn’t Have Written A Better Script”

What it means: The way the game went was perfect for the winning team. Script like, almost. Complete with action, thrill, and a happy ending.

Why they said it: With Zeke out, Tyron Smith out, Sean Lee out, and Dan Bailey out, it’s like the cards were perfectly set for the Falcons. And they sure made it count.

What we think of:

“Backs Against the Wall”

What it means: A team or a player is in a serious situation where their next move, could possibly doom their season, or to put it less dramatically, the outcome of the game.

Why they said it: Sounds about right. But you know what they say about adversity right? “Adversity causes some men to break and others to break records”. Looks like it’s record breaking time.

What we think of:


 What it means: When the quarterback is tackled behind the line of scrimmage while the ball is still in his hand. Or in other words, before he can get a forward pass off.

Why they said it: Welp. This one’s pretty self explanatory. Especially if you read number one. Read on for some, hopefully, comedic relief.

What we think of:

“Us Against the World”

 What it means: It seems as though the world, and everyone in it, is rooting for the demise of a particular team. Now’s the time for camaraderie.

Why they said it: Who cares about the outcome of the game. We have seven games left to finish this fight. Let’s do it!

What we think of:


Down, but never out. See ya next week after our home game against the Eagles!
