Early in the second quarter, after a stupid Georgia penalty, Patrick gave us this classic line, which the Detroit Free Press caught in their live blog:
Is that over the line? Perhaps a little bit. Apparently Patrick's partner went dead silent and then the discussion quickly switched to another subject. But announcers often use the term "shooting themselves in the foot" so is it really that bad, especially if Plaxico didn't do any long term harm to himself? Probably not.
And besides, it's not like Patrick hasn't said much more ridiculous things on the air. Just check out this clip from last season.
Maybe ESPN should just never assign Patrick to another Georgia game ever again.
