Cincinnati Bengals striker Evan McPherson became a Queen City legend after winning his match, but his words before kicking could have been better.
Joe Burrow may be The Geauxt, but Cincinnati Bengals Teammate Evan McPherson had a great quote.
McPherson scored a 52-yard goal as time ran out to sink the top seed Tennessee Titans in Nashville, 19-16. Burrow may have been very confident since his magical senior season at LSU, but what McPherson is said to have told him just before kick-off is the stuff of legend. Burrow said McPherson told him, “looks like we’re going to be in the AFC Championship Match.”
This might be the best post-season quote since Jalen Ramsey said, “we’re going to the Super Bowl and we’re going to win that b*tch” as a proud member of the Jacksonville Jaguars 2017.
Cincinnati Bengals striker Evan McPherson had an impressive quote about the winner before the game
It may not be as over-the-top as what Ramsey told all four of Duval County’s following four months, but that doesn’t change the fact that it’s an incredibly pessimistic statement. Making a goal on the 52-yard field is always a challenge. Doing it on the way to a chance to make franchise history as a rookie over the top seed at AFC is stranger than fiction. This was not your Bengals team yesterday.
This is the third trip to the AFC Championship Game in franchise history for the Bengals. The last time they did this, they won the AFC and faced the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl. Unfortunately, Ken Anderson and later Boomer Esiason couldn’t match Joe Montana’s West Coast matchmaking for a former Bengals assistant coach named Bill Walsh.
The last time the Bengal team went this far, Ickey Woods shuffled all final zones in 1988.
