Football 101: Jet Sweep vs. End Around vs. Reverse

Someone sent me this link on Twitter, and it's a really good guide to understanding one of my pet peeves about football on television: announcers who can't understand the difference between a jet sweep, an end around, a reverse, and a double reverse.

We don't write about it much at FO because it's all internal data that we can't get on the outside, but the best analytics are the sports science analytics that will improve player performance and help prevent injuries. We know how to prevent a lot of the non-contact preseason injuries that are caused by a "one size fits all" method of practice and a poor understanding of how to slowly ease into conditioning. But the data doesn't help if the coaches won't change their ways.
