Coach Jeff Fisher of the Tennessee Titans has given a lot of credit for Sunday's upset of the Dallas Cowboys to their world-renowned cheerleaders.
"The game was close all the way and as usual half of us on the visiting team's bench were watching the game with one eye, and the other on the cheerleaders", stated Fisher.
Fisher then told reporters in Nashville that all of a sudden he closed his eyes after a bad run play and 'LISTENED' to what those cheerleaders were saying.
"Those gals were right. We needed 'DEFENSE! DEFENCE!' so I got the guys to listen too, and from then on they inspired us to go after those Cowboys with everything those twisting, tail-shaking cheerleaders had told us!"
Team assistant physician stated that the Titans couldn't hear their own cheerleaders because of the crowd. "Besides, how many times do you get to go into Dallas and see their cheerleaders?"
One of the Tennessee (29) players stated the Cowboys themselves are so used to seeing the cheerleaders that 'they done become impotent'.
"It's like biscuits and gravy. We had them most of the time where we grew up but one day we ate pancakes. My life's never been the same since."
Meanwhile, Cowboy's coach (at least at this writing) Wade Phillips told us, "That's all we need. For OUR cheerleaders to be stirring up the opposition! But to be honest, we HAVE sort of taken the gals for granted. We'll be having a team meeting tomorrow morning and I'm inviting the cheerleaders."
"Maybe we can get them to DEPRESS the opponent by just standing there and yelling "I Can't Win!" or something when they have the ball."
