Ferrall On The Bench Weekly Rewind 8/31-9/4

TIM BRANDO – 8/31/15
Fox Sports national sports commentator

“They’re not just about Boykin. They got great running backs – plenty of them. And they got world-class sprinter speed at all the wide receiver positions. They are Oregon Southwest. That’s really what they are from an offensive standpoint. Only Oregon is faster on the edge than TCU.”

“They’re a lot better off at quarterback this time than they were last year when Mallett was still in New England and the quarterbacks with Ryan Fitzpatrick, Case Keenum and rookie Tom Savage.”

JOEL CORRY – 9/1/15
Former NFL super agent

“If his future was in Washington, he’d still be starting, which was why I would be asking for a release. If they wouldn’t do that, (I’d want) permission to find a trade. The only way RG3 is going to resurrect his career, if that is possible, is someplace else. It won’t be under Jay Gruden, and it would be with the Redskins.”

“That’s a Ferrall month at the plate. There’s clearly something wrong with him at the plate. If the Angels don’t pick up some ground in the next week, they’re probably done.”

“If you’re playing this Alabama team with Reggie Ragland, A’Shawn Robinson and what’s probably the best front seven in the country, you’re going to have a pretty hard time running the ball. This is going to be another very low-scoring game. I’m not expecting either team to get into the 30s. I think Lane Kiffin is going to know where his bread is buttered here, hand the ball off to Derrick Henry 25 or 30 times, maybe get it to Kenyon Drake on some swing passes, some screens, not take a lot of chances with Jake Coker and just let that front seven do its thing and Alabama should be able to hang on for a victory. If Coker makes a mistake here and there, things might get dicey. I don’t think they’re going to let him do that, though.”

TIM GRAHAM – 9/2/15
Buffalo News Bills writer

“I think there were a lot of people in the organization that were disappointed that Doug Whaley didn’t communicate with other key people in the organization that we’re going to have to let Fred Jackson go at some point. Because there were a lot of people who were expecting Fred Jackson to be on this team this year.”

RICK HORROW – 9/3/15
Sports legal analyst

“It’s a question of how to deploy it and whether or not there was appropriate evidence – and that’s the thing you keep in mind. Because nowhere in any of this – (the) hearing or Judge Berman’s ruling – was there ever anything about did he do it, did he not do it (or) the whole idea of a standard of being generally aware. General awareness of ball deflation by others is not enough. That’s what he said. He didn’t reach any conclusions about whether he did it or how much he did. And I think it’s refreshing that we’re talking about who catches the ball, who throws the ball – not whether it’s blown up at 12 PSI or 14.”

DEVONTAE BOOKER – 9/3/15
Utah running back

“They kept bringing everyone in the box – about eight, nine, maybe 10 sometimes in the box. They were just bringing them. Every time we ran it, we were running into the blitz. But we just made some adjustments at half, (and) the softer the defense tends to get – because they don’t want to keep tackling me coming full speed.”
