    "Forced to Punt"

    Does this phrase drive anyone else nuts when commentators use it? A team isn't forced to punt, they elect to punt. Frequently, they do so even when it's a demonstrably bad idea, because of the generally risk averse nature of people and management generally. I feel like commentators just tacitly agreeing that coaches have no choice helps reinforce this bad decision making.

    no. But apparently a post on this forum requires 10 characters.

    Merged this. I feel it's in the same vein.

    All of my loathing for this one. I cannot STAND this phrase.

    and I'm suddenly reminded of...
    Quite often, the difference between an idiot and a genius is simply a matter of success rate.

    I am sick of hearing Andy Reid say " I take full responsibility" and "we gotta do a better job" after every loss, several times.

    Taking responsibility is good, but it is meaningless if you just repeat it over and over at every press conference.
