Jesse Palmer’s preseason homerism

“National analyst” Jesse Palmer has this to say about Florida’s 2014 chances:  “If Florida can stay healthy, then I think the sky is the limit.”

That’s mighty deep.

    what he really said:

    “If the Florida football team can keep their football players healthy this football season during football plays on the football field, they will not be limited in football success by the football field but by the sky. Football.”

    The sky is the limit…based on what? They are riding a 7 game losing streak with a loss to Ga Southern for crying out loud. They have very little offensive weaponry and a dangerously thin offensive line. UF is a very fragile team. They will crumble after the first set of adversity, which will occur on or prior to the day they arrive in Tuscaloosa. The wheels will come off after that game, and Muschamp will NOT be the coach when they come to Jax. Book it!

    Perhaps he meant the sky is the limit for how bad they can be?

    Wish I could get paid to spout nonsense for a living.

      And he gets paid how much to speak such nonsense? I need to be in a field where I have an agent…

    Maybe someday he will at least learn how to properly tie a necktie..

    University of Florida, preseason national champs, all USCe fans are heart broken.

    Jessie is a damn Canadian. He still thinks you can have 12 man teams. He can’t keep his mouth shut when doing the color on a football game. He will talk over the play by play to say nothing at all. On camera he uses his hands when he talks like an Italian begging for mercy. I will not listen to him call a game ever.

    Jesse was misquoted.

    He said, “If Florida can stay healthy, then I think this guy is the limit”.

    No one in the room was sure if Jesse was talking about Mr. Driskel, or Mr. Muschamp.

    Nobody stays healthy. It’s a stupid but overused qualifier.

    I remember Jesse’s outburst during the Capital One Bowl vs. Nebraska at the end of the ’13 season when, referring to Georgia’s sluggish third quarter, he quipped, “When does pride kick in?”

    Oh? A program with such names as Sinkwich, Trippi, Scott, Stanfill, Walker, Hoage, and two guys named David? With no pride? And this from a Bachelorette? You have GOT to be kidding me. I might mention that Murray finished with 427 yards and 5 touchdowns in a 45-31 victory. I guess Jesse’s inspired, courageous analysis lit a fire under Aaron, huh?

    No pride, Jesse freakin’ Palmer? Good GRIEF. In the classic words of Marvin Gaye, “Makes we wanna holler, throw up both my hands.”


  12. Jesus what a waste of time.

    Does this mean if the wheels come off the Gaytors in Tuscaloosa or on the Street of The Miracle that Jesse Palmer will get hooted off the stage?

    Yet another reason to hate the Gaytors early.
