Part of becoming a great broadcaster is having a great vocabulary and finding ways to vary your verbiage. That is why a regular feature on this site will be “Announcer Alterations” where we take short clips of pre-existing play-by-play synced to video and come up with five different ways to call the same sequence of events.
For this edition we use the outstanding call of Aaron Rodgers throwing a last second TD pass to Randall Randall Cobb by Wayne Larrivee.
Rodgers gets the snap. Blitz is on! Rodgers scrambles left. Winds up. Rainbow. HE’S GOT COBB AT THE 10, TO THE FIVE, TO THE ENDZONE! TOUCHDOWN! AND A DAGGER!
And Five Ways To Alter The Call
Shotgun fired back to Rodgers. Under pressure! Escapes to the left. Cocks back and lofts one deep. COBB’S OPEN! COMPLETE AT THE TEN, FIVE, TOUCHDOWN! AND THE PACKERS GO AHEAD WITH LESS THAN A MINUTE TO GO!
Exchange made back to Rodgers in the gun. Bears bring heat! Avoids the mob to left. Unleashes an arcing spiral. REELED IN BY COBB AT THE TEN, FIVE, END ZONE! SIX SHOTS TO THE HEART FROM RODGERS TO COBB!
Snap to Rodgers in the gun. Bears storm the backfield. Rodgers dodges left. Fires the Howitzer. AND FINDS COBB AT THE TEN, FIVE, AND ACROSS THE GOAL LINE! AND THE FATES PREPARE TO CUT THE THREAD ON THE BEARS TONIGHT!
Rodgers the snap. Bears breach the line. Eludes and rolls left. Hangs one deep towards Cobb. SNATCHES IT IN AT THE TEN, FIVE, PROMISED LAND! THE PACK MAY HAVE JUST LANDED THE KNOCKOUT PUNCH!
Rodgers back waiting to load the shotgun. Snap. Chased out of the pocket. Slips away left. Plants and heaves downfield. COBB RECIEVES THE PRAYER AT THE TEN, FIVE, PAY DIRT! ONLY A CALL FROM THE GOVERNOR CAN SAVE THE BEARS NOW!
