Football Cliches

Postby Red D » Mon Nov 12, 2012 9:44 pm

Pet Peeve time, need to vent:

There are tons of sayings and cliches that football commentators and analysts use on TV, but one is really bugging me and it's really started to take hold in the lexicon these last couple seasons - "He went and caught the ball at its highest point."

No, catching the ball at its highest point would mean the apex of the throw probably like 20 feet in the air (give or take depending upon length of pass), exactly half-way between the QB and the receiver.

How about going back to the old tried and true "the receiver timed his jump perfectly."

Now back to your regularly scheduled rantings about how our offense is underperforming and Jacoby is better than Jeff... :razz:

"Depends on the spot." :angry:

"Now remember,it was ruled ______ on the field. So there's going to have to be conclusive evidence to overturn it." :angry: :angry:

Palmer is bad about the latter.

Watching the Eagles/cowboys game, they actually brought in this guy with glasses to analyze the challenge, who basically said if they could prove the ball hit the ground, it would be incomplete. Otherwise, it would be ruled a catch and a TD. Thanks, pal. :angry: :angry: :angry:

Correction: cowturds

What I called them when I was an nfl fan (Don Shula era). You cowturd fans don't bother with a retort cuz I no longer give a flying turd about the nfl, except for Timmy and former Gators.

I always like when they are stroking some team in the beginning, then switch and start stoking the other team (like taking a girl to dinner and then just get up walk over to another table to a different girl and take her home). It really gets interesting when the 1st stroked team eventually comes back at the very end (their back to the girl they showed up with at dinner) and carry on with out missing a stroke lol. Those guys are good, predictable but good.

I often imagine it being the other way around and it just wouldn't be right, they could try it one time at least and see if they could pull it off. :lol:

I hate when they talk about kickers making a field goal when the ball starts outside of the uprights and comes back in. They get all excited and say "he hooked it in" like that is what they were going for. Plain and simple, the kicker poorly hit the ball and it happened to work out, quit praising them.

On that note, I love when they thrown in the inside scoop comment about a kicker “booming them from 60 yards out in pregame”.

You mean when there was no defensive pile in front of him, and he had no one trying to block it? Yeah, we saw that too…on every kick off.

Well, I have the distinct luxury of watching UF's offense on Saturdays, and Philly's offense on Sundays.

Touchdowns are for suckers. :lol:
