Memorable press conferences

Arkansas interim head football coach John L. Smith’s rant on smiling brought up the memory of some past press conferences that really did make us smile. Or fall out of our chair laughing, to be honest.

During our hunt through memory lane, aka YouTube, we decided this would be a question best posted here. What’s you most memorable press conference outburst?

We’ll get you started with a few choice favorites, but we’ll warn you there is some foul language being spouted so turn the volume low so the boss won’t hear, and put the kiddo down for a nap.

Who was the coach that was asked “How do you feel about the execution of your offensive line?” and he answered, “I am all for it.” That was classic!!!!! As a colts fan, my favorite is still Jim Mora and “Playoffs?”

I think he was the Arizona HC when “they were who we thought they were…if you wanna crown them, then crown them…” rant came out. And is fourth behind in IMO:
1) Playoffs?
2) We talking about practice. Not a game, no not a game. We talking about practice.
3) I’m 40. I’m a man.
4) If you wanna crown them, crown them.

@Execution – That quote was from the old USC-w coach John Robinson when he was with the “Cream-sicle” Tampa Bay Bucs…

The McRae incident happened in April! The season was three weeks old!

“Execution”, that was John McKay of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Great line. He also said, “We didn’t tackle well today but we made up for it by not blocking” and “Emotion is highly overrated in football. My wife Corky is emotional as hell but can’t play football worth a damn.”

I don’t know if this qualifies but Ryan Leaf’s “knock if off!!” meltdown was freaking hilarious.

How can anyone forget John Chaney interrupting John Calipari’s press conference?
