A Perfect Storm of Bad Cliches


I don’t mean to throw Tom Oates under the bus, but at the end of the day he’s left me no choice.  Now it’s the Green Bay quarterback situation that is the “perfect storm.”

En route to a 30-21 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Packers flew directly into the Bermuda Triangle for quarterbacks. In what had to be their worst nightmare, general manager Ted Thompson and coach Mike McCarthy saw all three of their quarterback moves form into a perfect storm, one so strong it even managed to drop a little rain on the Milwaukee Brewers’ parade.

I don’t disagree with much of the analysis here, but please can we rid ourselves forever of the dumb-ass “perfect storm” cliche?
