“Generational talent” - way overused

“He needs to get his head around” - Announcer defending a PI call when there was no contact, but the DB wasn’t looking at the ball.

He’s got a “motor”… just say stamina

“Ball skills” - unless referring to a cheerleader

“Free football” for overtime- not that cute

“Insert team color …out”
