LA Rams audibles cracking up football fans


The LA Rams are rolling in their first season back in Los Angeles (the team moved from LA to St. Louis in the 1990s, the team was originally located in Cleveland) thanks to Sean McVay, the youngest coach in NFL history, a roster of hungry players and a great offense.

Quarterback Jared Goff leads the Rams attack, and per duty of quarterbacks, has to call audibles (switch plays or assignments) at the line of scrimmage before snapping the ball.

McVay’s audible system uses a collection of very familiar celebrity names. Other teams use similar systems, most famously Peyton Manning, who would call “Omaha” often at the line of scrimmage. The “Omaha” call became a viral internet theme.

Goff’s calls include “Elvis,” “Obama,” “Tupac,” “Dusty,” and “Ric Flair.” 

Audible calls have been around football for half a century. With spread and quick snap offenses now the norm, sideline signs with different photos to send plays to the quarterback have become a common scene on many sidelines. The randomness makes for a good unintentional nap.
