Every so often, someone will ask why the BRB Glossary hasn't been updated. We then usually laugh heartily at how long it's been since an update has been created and forget about it afterward. With Summer coming, the hopes for a lockout at an all-time high, and the fact that I can't think of anything substantive to write about today, we finally bring you, at long last, a second edition of the Battle Red Blog Glossary.
Most of the terms on here have been ripped off from the original BRB Glossary which, in turn, took some of its terms from DGDB&D. I have added a few that I could think of off the top of my head as well. So before we go on, I want to give props to MDC and bfd for coming up with many of the original terms and tGC for compiling the original list.
I should add that this is by no means a complete list, so if you can think of a term that's not on the list, please include it in the comments and I will update them as quickly as I can.

Patrick Willis - Before the San Francisco game, we discovered that some of our friends at Niners Nation think a wee bit too highly of their (admittedly very excellent) linebacker. I'll let someone else explain it from here. Take it away, TexansForever:
When the ball is snapped, WIllis bursts out of his Jersey and flies 20 feet up into the air (spinning in a 360) as he is surrounded by a Holy Light and wings sprout from his back.

Each aspect then converges on an opposing player and blankets him in a radiant light of blinding glory while the offense falls prostrate in divine worship.
