The what nosetackle? John Madden said that?
Yahoo!'s Shutdown Corner thought he heard John Madden say the words: "Cock nosetackle." He played it back and there it was again: "Cock Nosetackle." The headline on his post pretty much says it all: "The cock nosetackle, and why he's not such a bad guy." Shutdown finds a quote from Rod Marinelli, who describes it as: “It’s how we tilt them and we cock him." Shutdown gives us a history lesson in the phrase.
