Chris Long on Robert Quinn: We don’t just carry any jackwagon off the field

The Rams won’t be going to the playoffs this season, but one member of the team may be in line for postseason honors all the same.

Defensive end Robert Quinn had three more sacks on Sunday, giving him a league-high 18 on the season. It’s also a Rams single-season record, albeit one that might still be out of reach if Deacon Jones played in an era where sacks were an official statistic. That didn’t stop coach Jeff Fisher from calling Quinn’s efforts this season “very impressive” nor did it stop his teammates from hoisting him to their shoulders after the game.

“In our book, we just don’t carry anybody off the field,” defensive end Chris Long said, via the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. “We just don’t carry any jackwagon off the field. This guy’s something else.”

Quinn’s going to be one of the leading contenders for the Defensive Player of the Year award once the season comes to an end. If he can get a couple more sacks in the season finale, he’d have one of the top-10 sack totals for a single season and that might be enough to push the honor his way.

  1. There’s a lot to love about Quinn and his game, but what exactly does “We don’t just carry any jackwagon off the field” mean precisely?

    Sounds like it means Quinn can really ball – but not real familiar with that expression.

  2. If I were a Rams fan I wouldn’t want to watch my team celebrating a single season performance, while notable wasn’t particularly incredible.

    Try celebrating winning, maybe?

  3. Best hire Jeff Fisher made was Mike Waufle for that defensive line. His track record speaks for itself going back to his days on Jon Gruden’s Raider staff, what he did with the Giants during their first Super Bowl run, and even what he did with the Raider line in his return there a couple of years ago without as much talent to work with. As long as he’s coaching them, the sky’s the limit for those defensive linemen.

  4. Well rams fans havnt had much to cheer about for a long time. Hard to criticize them being happy over an individuals performance when it is player of the year worthy…and the rams don’t have anything else to play for

    They did win the game and they picked him up near the entrance to the tunnel. And 18 sacks so far with one more game to play isn’t “particularly incredible”? Do you even watch much football??

  6. that awkward moment when the hundreds of people who thumbs downed me saying quinn should be the DPY last week realize that im right…even though he probably still will not win.

  7. The Bills have FOUR guys with 10+ sacks each…I’ll take that distribution over a one-person sack machine, though the individual recognition unfortunately won’t be there for them…

  8. You can take your pass rush.

    We’ll take ours.

    Being that Buffalo is ranked 1st and the Rams 3rd, I don’t see a big discrepancy anyway.
