Shuttle pass, or shovel pass?

And when did “the line to gain” become a thing?

    Shovel because the pass mimics the motion of tossing out shoveled dirt.

    Really?!

    So not a shuffle? Or a shuttle? How about the line to gain?

    It once had a much darker meaning.

    Line to gain is old timey. I like that.

    It all depends on the spot

    They might want to take a look at that

    They should. Could be melanoma.

    Line to gain sounds tuff. The Icky Shuffle was cool in its time. The shuttle drill is necessary to assess for great hips

    I’m with Damone on line to gain. Seems like every announcer starting using it out of the blue a few years ago. Don’t remember hearing it much from announcers before that and I’ve been watching football a long time — since Race was in his 40’s.

    Probably increased because every game has a giant yellow line on the field now.

    Our inbred QB and former OC are still trying to figure out how to avoid that yellow line.

    It's old timey, but isn't. It like The Rock Pizza in a strip mall. They makes it look an old brick building interior in a warehouse district, but it's brand new and fake.

    I’m adding “football move “ to new things announcers say that are annoying. WTF does that even mean. You know what a “football move” is? Catching the ball. Why is taking a step a “football move”. And why is it a football move and not just a move. These people sound like cliche dropping dip shits

    Football move is a more concise way of saying "performs any act common to the game (e.g., tuck the ball away, extend it forward, take an additional step, turn upfield, or avoid or ward off an opponent), or he maintains control of the ball long enough to do so."

    Honestly I prefer announcers use the term football move than the full definition.

    Isn’t catching the ball a football move

    It's not a completion unless you... make a football move. The process of completing the catch is finalized once a football move is made. The ball hitting your hands isn't sufficient - that is just the start. Have you ever seen a game of football before? You clearly don't actually understand some of the basics of the rules.
