Quote of the Week I
"Let me just say this: If any of you are thinking we're going to use this pick now to leverage it, the answer is no. Calvin Johnson is staying right here in Detroit. Calvin Johnson is going to team with the rest of this offense and turn it into one of the most dynamic offenses in this league. I firmly believe that. You can scoff at it if you like. I really don't care, because I think it's going to happen.''
-- Embattled Detroit general manager Matt Millen, after choosing Johnson with the second overall pick on Saturday.
Quote of the Week II
"Brady Quinn is a great quarterback, and just to be in competition with him and for me to beat him out -- it was a great thing from God.''
-- Ohio State wide receiver/kick returner Ted Ginn Jr., after being selected ninth in the draft by the Miami Dolphins, much to the chagrin of Dolphin Nation.
Quote of the Week III
"Savage = Genius. Miami will be haunted 4 years.''
-- HBO "Inside the NFL'' senior producer and not-so-closeted Browns fan Brian Hyland, in a text message to me Saturday afternoon at 4:23 p.m.
Quote of the Week IV
-- The sound greeting Miami coach Cam Cameron at a south Florida draft party when he stepped to the mike to tell them the team had used its first-round pick on Ted Ginn Jr., not Brady Quinn. The sound was interrupted by one fan yelling, "What a dumb pick!''
Quote of the Week V
"It's my hair, and I have nothing negative to say about it.''
-- ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr., on his puffy coiffed 'do, to The Baltimore Sun.
Quote of the Week VI
"We just caught the biggest fish of the day. It looks like it's a brown trout.''
-- Wisconsin offensive tackle Joe Thomas, aboard a boat in Lake Michigan, fishing with his father while conducting a conference call with the Cleveland media after being picked third by the Browns.
Game of the Year (Suddenly)
On Oct. 14, Miami plays at Cleveland.
I christen thee: "The Brady Quinn Bowl.''
