Quotes about dating a football player
Despite Mark Sanchez’s league-low 52% completion rate and league-high four red-zone interceptions, the players believe he should remain the starter over Tebow, who has accounted for only 132 total yards and averaged seven offensive snaps per game. We don’t really have a choice.” When asked about the team’s two other quarterbacks on the depth chart as possible alternatives — Tebow and Greg Mc Elroy — Slauson clarified that the Jets really have only one other quarterback.

Frankly, nothing Owen has done in the 18 years since then has done anything to change my mental image of what he must be like off the field.
Even now, in my mind’s eye Owen could quite happily spend an afternoon at home sitting silently in his living room – lots of beige, paintings of horses on the walls – or mumbling a little running commentary to an empty room as he plays snooker against himself, taking enough genuine satisfaction from his eventual hard-fought victory to put him in a great mood for the rest of the evening.
