-- Jokingly comparing Johnny Manziel's half-game suspension to his hiatus from ESPN: "I got seven years for nothing!"
-- On the banners featuring Joe Flacco that the NFL hung in Denver to promote next week's season-opener: "Do you know where the easiest place to hide incompetence is, inside a successful organization. There’s no more a successful organization than the National Football League. This is incompetence from the league office. ... This is as bad as Janet Jackson’s nipple at halftime.
