No, this isn’t from last night’s Cowboys/Packers game, although middle school ball may very well be Wade Phillips’s next stop. The clip’s banked a quarter of a million views on YouTube in 24 hours, which means megaviral status is assured; might as well watch it now since you’ll end up watching it somewhere eventually. As for the metaphor, what else could it possibly be this week? The stimulus fizzled, ObamaCare tanked in the polls, and now they’re promising to bring back Nancy for Victory Tour ’12. They’re letting us walk right through the line.
Seriously: What happened here? Do linemen in middle school not rush when the ball is snapped?
