The quotable NFL GameDay: Week 2

The quotable *NFL GameDay* on Week 2 in the NFL ...

"Sean Payton is getting it mixed up. You have to serve the entrée before the dessert. He's trying to serve you some Reggie Bush before Deuce McAllister. You've got to go with Deuce, then come with Reggie. Reggie is a role player, not an every down back." -- Deion Sanders on New Orleans Saints

"This New England team is so much better than last year's 12-4 team." -- Steve Mariucci on Patriots

"Get him involved early and often and he's happy." -- Deion Sanders on Patriots WR Randy Moss, who had eight receptions for 105 yards and two touchdowns

"Thankfully we've got digitizing equipment." -- Rich Eisen on camera shot of Browns fans after Bengals WR Chad Johnson leaped into Cleveland's "Dawg Pound" following his TD catch

"Tell me that's a replay from last season. I told you not to kick it to him!" -- Deion Sanders on Bears WR/KR Devin Hester's 73-yard punt-return touchdown

"I never could run that fast. I didn't have that type of vision." -- Deion Sanders on Hester

"The team that impresses me at 2-0 is Houston. Richard Smith really has that defense playing well." -- Steve Mariucci on Houston Texans

"What impresses me about Matt Schaub is his poise in the pocket…[and] trusting his receivers." -- Steve Mariucci on Texans QB Matt Schaub

"The team that impresses me the most is the New England Patriots. They have really separated themselves from the pack. In the NFC, it's the Dallas Cowboys even though that defense has given up a lot of points." -- Deion Sanders on impressive teams

"This guy is special. He is learning to be a pass receiver out of the backfield. He didn't have a chance to do it much in college, but he is learning it quickly." -- Steve Mariucci on Vikings rookie RB Adrian Peterson

"It had to be the wind." -- Deion Sanders on Vikings K Ryan Longwell's fourth-quarter 52-yard FG attempt hooking into the upright at Ford Field

"This is what I love about Jon Kitna. He's a tough guy. He was hurt. He came back into the game. He gave it up for the team and led his team to a win." -- Steve Mariucci on Lions QB Jon Kitna coming back into game after an injury to lead Detroit to an overtime win

"He doesn't blitz as often as he should. [The Bears] like him in coverage. He played safety in college." -- Steve Mariucci on Bears LB Brian Urlacher, who had his first sack since October 16, 2005
