They say the odds of an 0-3 team making the playoffs are "who gives a sh!t and shut the f@ck up, I hate this game". Or something like that. I'm not good with statistics.
But I am good with words and I've got some for you. It's time for my annual definition derby. Here are 7 more breakdowns of football lingo to buff up your football brain.
