NFL quarterbacks come up with audibles all the time to counter against unfavorable defenses. Most of the time, when we hear these audibles we are left with the question: What does that even mean?
Well, these quarterbacks made some strong references when they yelled out their audibles.
Matthew Stafford: "Kershaw"
What's the best way to remind everyone that you have a lifelong friendship with All-Star pitcher Clayton Kershaw? Obviously by using his name as an audible.
Derek Carr: "Seattle"
It's first-and-goal from the 2-yard line with Marshawn Lynch in the back field. What would you do, run or pass?
Peyton Manning: "Omaha"
Thanks to Manning, Omaha, Nebraska might have had an increase in visitors. A future Hall of Fame quarterback and a Nebraska spokesman, who knew!
Tom Brady: "Rex Ryan"
When you have a 12-5 record against Rex Ryan, I guess his name is fair game.
Eli Manning: "Balboa"
Calling out one of the greatest fictional Philadelphian athletes of all time, that's bold. Next time Manning is in Philly, he better be on the lookout for Sylvester Stallone.
