I’m a big fan of London Fletcher’s hype work. RGIII’s, though? As evidenced by yesterday’s pregame speech, he may need to practice in the mirror. Here’s what Deion Sanders had to say during the NFL Network’s Redskins-Bears segment (via Chris):
Deion: “That sounded like that was off a teleprompter.”
Chris Rose: “What’s the matter with reading something off a teleprompter?”
Deion: “Not when you’re speaking to your team. (Imitating RGIII’s voice) ‘We’re going to get our breakthrough.'”
In a related story, a Google search for “Deion Sanders pregame speech” yields … nothing of substance.
Later on they showed Devin Hester’s punt return TD, over which Marshall Faulk said, “Fire the punter,” not once but twice. Would that be the same punter who boomed the ball and pinned Hester to the sideline, right where Niles Paul was waiting (but failed) to tackle him? Maybe Faulk was just reading off a teleprompter.
