Nonsensical gibberish or, alternately, blindingly obvious observations spouted by one of the most inept football commentators in the history of the medium. Fox thought Pat was the senile one when it was John all along.
"To win the game, you have to score more points than the other team."

"It doinked the post, and whenever the ball doinks the post, you want it to bounce back between the posts."

"Donovan McNabb is doing the things
Donovan McNabb does."

"First down is a good down."

"The quarterback's job is to throw the ball to his receivers."

"That was a dumb play. Dumb play. You know, that was a dumb play. I mean, that was a dumb play. I've seen some dumb plays, but that was a dumb play! (lampooned by the Simpsons. Sez Homer, "that team sure did suck last night. They just plain sucked! I've seen teams suck before, but they were the suckiest bunch of sucks that ever sucked.")."

<Maddenism> adj. --repetitive videogames that churn out the same product from the previous year cutting, pasting, and slapping minute additions that contains negligible improvements in graphics, gameplay, music, and other tidbits over the previous version of the game. Applies to most 2K Sports and EA Sports titles, and other games such as those from the Dynasty Warriors series.
"Ah man, NBA 2K6 for the 360 sucks, it's one of those maddenism games, it's the same version as what's on other consoles expect the player's faces are cut and pasted to look better, but everything else is just current gen video game graphics"
