Steve Spurrier's final press conference

(By Jonathan Newton - TWP)

This "Best D.C. Sports Quotes" thing is the blog post that keeps on blogging. It prompted Reader Chris, who happens to be among the smartest readers in Bog history, to send in the audio file of Steve Spurrier's final press conference with the Redskins. The first two minutes are a Greatest D.C. Sports Quotes tour de force. Just beyond amazing. At least five legitimate, unintended laugh-out-loud moments.

Also, the "5-11, not the best, but not the worst either" quote was slightly off in the previous post. What the heck, I'll transcribe the whole two minutes, for anyone who can't listen to audio at work. But please, do have a listen when you can. And thanks, Chris.

"Big crowd here! Hey Frank! How we doin' my man?

"Who's that guy with the Gator hat on? Yup. Florida Gator cap.

"Got a big crowd in here! Ok, we wound up 5-11! Not very good! But there was some worse 'un us. I guess that's one positive way to look at it, we weren't the worst team in the league. But it wa'n't very good. And we're disappointed. And offseason's here, so we'll try to regroup. And try to make this team, this franchise better.

"Redskin fans deserve a championship team. They're the best. I've said that many times, they fill the ballpark, scream and yell, and even though we didn't play very well this year I thought they were super. Redskins fans are the best in pro football. That's my opinion anyway.

"Some guys had pretty daggum good years. I think our kickers, John Hall and Bryan Barker, had exceptional years, they really did. And a lot of players played well. A lot of players. But overall, we simply didn't get it done, as coaches and players. We lose together. And certainly the close losses probably added up and we didn't have much gas in our tank last night.

"So I really don't have a whole lot of great information for you guys today to sum up the season. And obviously when you have a disappointing year changes are gonna be made, we all know that, and hopefully all the changes will be for the best interests of the Redskins, and the Redskins will be a stronger year next year. So, when the changes are official, we'll let everybody know, but right now, really, no official change in too much right now that I know about. So that's where we are."

I was so glad he left. There was no hope with Spurrier on the sidelines.

To paraphrase Walter Sobchak, Spurrier was out of his element.

My god. I've been looking for the 5-11, not very good quote audio for years now. Thanks Steinberg.

I agree with what Poopy said.

Glad to hear Junior, yesterday on TSR, rip into Andy Polley for piling on the OBC.

It's quite possible that John Hall and Brian Barker were the only two players whose names he remembered at that point. Talk about phoning it in.
