"Just put that phrase into Google. I’m sure you’ll get something." is possibly the worst advice given to anyone, ever.

We had something like a cheer in the early '80s that went:

"E.J.* up the middle,

E.J. up the middle,

E.J. up the middle,


The monotonous repetition followed by an abrupt and unsatisfying ending were an apt metaphor for what was happening on the field.

(*Fullback E.J. Jones)
