One Dog, Two Dog, Red Dog, Blue Dog

Robert Waldmann explains Basic Football Terminology:

To Red Dog (alternative phrase for to blitz):

Linebacker crosses line of scrimmage attempting to sack opposing quarterback.

Often works, sometimes risky. Shows that player (and/or defensive coordinator) has guts.

To Blue Dog (alternative phrase for To Benedict Arnold):

Linebacker crosses own goal line and spikes own helmet.

Shows that player forgot which team he is on.
