Matt Vasgersian Gives Us A New Football Term In "Clock Blocking"

Monday, November 03, 2008

I know this is a week old, but it's too funny not to have a spot on this site (thanks to DD for the clip). During last week's Cardinals-Panthers game, Neil Rackers was lining up for a 39-yard field goal, when Carolina's Coach John Fox decided to ice the kicker with one of those right before the snap timeouts. Well listen closely for what Vasgersian has now dubbed the tactic....



I approve! When coaches starting pulling this move about three years ago, I noticed announcers struggling for a term to use, but now they have it thanks to Matt Vasgersian. It shall now be referred to "Clock Blocking", for evermore.

Vasgersian is awesome. One of the best out there, IMO. Good blend of humor, expertise, and excitement
