BEST Football Coach Soundbite of the YEAR



By Paul M. Banks

This is why I’m proud to be from the same hometown as Pat Fitzgerald. Well sort of, he’s from Orland Park, IL and I’m from Palos Heights which are pretty much the same exact place in the grand scheme of things.

This video, captured by John Tsarouchas of ESPN UWIRE is a MUST WATCH! Fitz gets candid in describing the offensive line, which has not been very good at run-blocking or pass-blocking this season. (Other than that though, they’ve been just fine!) It isn’t a Mike Gundy or Dennis Green level rant, but it certainly will get more reporters interested in coming out to cover practice. And getting to hear this gem makes listening to 1,000 “we’re just focusing on what we do” and “we’re just focusing on our next game, not looking ahead” type cliches worth the while.

Good job Tsarouchas. Enjoy

    Doug Bartels’ stammering soundbite gives me a glimpse of how weak that offensive line must be. Where’s the fire Doug? You sound like a junior high kid trying to talk to the hot girl that sat next to me in English class…er…I mean a junior high kid trying to talk to the hot girl that sat next to him. Yeah, him.

    Ozzie Guillen is probably my all-time favorite press conference…I’m really glad to happy to see Coach Fitz take a step in that direction
