Pet Peeve

Something that has been irking me lately is the use of the term "QB Draw".  Basically, whenever anyone talks about any play that DRob runs the ball and it isn't a scramble, they call it a QB Draw.

A draw is a play that looks like it is going to be a pass, but is actually a run.  QB draws don't usually have quite the movement and flow as handoff draws do, but when the ball is snapped to the QB and his first action is to take off, that is not a QB draw.  A quick step back, or passing motion or something else would make it a draw, but many of DRobs reported "QB draws" are not draws.  The 46 yards TD run last week was not a QB Draw.  I'd probably refer to is as a QB sweep.
