The first slate of nominees for the Dick Stockton Chronicles, more affectionately known as Straight Outta Stockton is finally here! To celebrate, NFL announcers around the country offered AA a smorgasboard of amusingly awful quotes. Particularly impressive was one Brian Billick, who leads the pack with 3 nominees. Dick Stockton, Jon Gruden, and Phil Simms also look like they will be among the frontrunners for the Dickies crown.
As to how the Straight Outta Stockton vote works, each week we'll nominate 15-20 quotes for you to pick the best 10. The winning quote of the week will earn that person 10 points all the way down to 1 point for 10th. Remember, you can vote for your favorite five quotes. Here are your Week 6 nominees...
