Top 10 NFL Terms Women Should Know Heading into Week 2

As women and most importantly Jersey Girls I’d like to think that we’re always prepared, but I know that’s not always the case. While watching the first week of football at a local Atlanta sports bar, I overheard so many things that were ‘so loud and so wrong’. So ladies, I have put together 10 football terms that will help you make it through next Sunday’s Game Day. So here’s your assignment for the week, read, learn and know these terms so I never have to sit and listen to another woman explain to her friend that that an audible is the sound quality in the stadium. Each week I’ll bring you more terms, so the more you read the more you’ll know. Now let’s play ball!

1. Audible. Like I said this is not referring to the sound quality in the stadium, or your ability to hear the ref. It’s when a play is called at the line of scrimmage that changes the play that had been previously called in the huddle or from the sideline. So to simplify even more, it’s when a play is changed at the last minute at the line.

2. Delay of Game. This one is a huge no-no, even in football you need to be courtesy of everyone’s time. A delay of game is when a player or coach on either team intentionally delays the start of the next play, which is accompanied by a 5 yard penalty. So let’s not be so rude.

3. False Start. False start is a terms that I think all women should know, understand and be able to identify when it happens. Now don’t get this confused by when men start something and don’t finish, but in the NFL a false start is an illegal motion called against the offense when a player moves off the line before the ball is snapped…unlike its defensive counterpart – encroachment (which is my ultimate “Rock Star” term) – it doesn’t matter if the offending player actually crosses the line of scrimmage or makes contact with an opposing player. Again this is also a 5 yard penalty.

4. Blitz. This is an aggressive, as if they needed to be more aggressive, defensive strategy of rushing six of more players at the quarterback. This usually happens in short yardage situations, because if a quarterback manages to complete a pass to one of his downfield receivers, the defense is vulnerable to an offensive long gain.

5. Clipping. I wanted to use this one because this was a term I heard a lot yesterday while watching the Oakland/Tennessee game. This block happens when an opposing player hits an opponent from behind and below the waist. This in any game is frowned upon because it has been known to cause serve knee and/or ankle injury sidelining a player for weeks or an entire season. With the severity of this action it has a 15 yard penalty and possibly includes a personal fine given to the player. So in addition to no puling of the hair, there’s also no clipping.

6. Interference. This is one of those terms that can be used as good or evil, it all just depends. The most common case of interference is “pass interference,” which refers to a situation where a defensive player hits a receiver while a ball is on its way to him, inhibiting his chances to make a catch. If this does occur the team in which the infraction occurred against will receive at first down at that point on the field. Now interference can also be used to describe a block or a series of block, as in the “offensive line ran interference for the running back”. Ladies you can also use this terms when you’re out with your girlfriends and a guy approaches one of your friends and you see that she’s clearly not interested, so you need to run interference to help your friend out.

7. Pocket. Now here is a term I know you hear all of the time, for example “Tom Brady is a great passer inside the pocket” but when you hear it your first response is usually “WHAT!!!” What the actual pocket refers to is the ring or in some cases a semicircle that is formed by the offensive line to protect the quarterback as he moves back to pass.

8. West Coast Offense. Here’s a offensive style of play that was popularized in the NFL by coach Bill Walsh of the 49ers during the Montana-era, but has gotten a lot more attention in recent years. This type of offense has a number of short passes underneath the defense coupled with a quick-release, high-percentage passing attack on first- and second- down. The ultimate objective here is to move the ball downfield and eat-up the time on the clock.

9. Two-Minute Warning. This is an “official” time-out called by the officials when there is only 2 minutes left to play in the half. If a play is in progress when the 2 minute mark occurs then the play is allowed to continue, and the time-out being at the end of the play.

10. Sack. The simple of this term is when the quarterback is attempting to pass, and is tackled behind the line of scrimmage. Now that was simple wasn’t it?

Check back each week on http://jerseygirlsports.com as we help you to navigate your way through the NFL, with our weekly top 10 terms. By week 16 you’ll be ready to coach your own team.

Until Next Time…
