"The Eye Test"

I have had enough of this phrase. I can't listen to any broadcast or highlight show anymore with out having to hear someone justify their opinion by appealing to "the eye test."

What are some other things that people in sports overuse? What phrases get on your nerves?

A couple more to get started:

"Presence of mind" when referencing a guy doing exactly what he was supposed to do. Example: "Boy, the presence of mind of that quarterback to find an open receiver despite being under pressure."

"Elite"- don't think it needs much explanation. Sick of hearing the elite discussion about everything from quarterbacks to pizza.

"He's out with a knee"....rrrrrrrggg! He's out with a knee INJURY!!!! Al Michaels made that term famous, and now everyone uses it. Small thing I know, but it's just a pet peeve of mine. Can't stand it when they say "He's out with an ankle" or something like that.

It is what it is I guess...

"Ton of credit." Referring to giving a guy props for doing a good job. I picked up on Mike Mayock overusing it the past couple of years for ND games. But now I am hearing it from a lot more sports commentators and desk analysts.

When discussing QB's, "all he does is win games" or "he's a winner"

Football is a team sport, the Quarterback isn't catching his own passes and blocking for himself too
