Certain football broadcasters/analysts use the term "contained" in a manner that
irritates me like scratching one's fingernails across a blackboard"
i.e. "The quarterback broke contained"
or "The running back breaks contained"
I understand what they are intending to convey, but I cannot comprehend the use of "contained" in this context.
"The defense failed to keep the qb contained" ..sure.
Jesse Palmer is a great one for that.
