skill position player only differentiates between Linemen and those that can touch the ball.

Cancer. Who has access to the locker room or the inner workings of an NFL team to determine this

I can surely respect this thought process. However sometimes it's used as legitimate term, and more times than not, the candidates are obvious. (T.O in Philly, Jacobs in NY/SF, Favre in NY, list goes on)
Playmaker. Any player with decent stats is a playmaker. Always sounded stupid to me.

I remember back in the mid 80's the 49er offense was referred to as a "gimmick offense". Now look, most of the NFL is using a version of Walsh's offense. There was one ex-player who used to call some of the 49er games on TV. I remember him specifically stating numerous times..."Yeah, but it's a gimmick offense." It used to irritate me every time I heard him say it. Can't remember his name though.
Now their saying the Read Option is a gimmick and defenses will figure it out but if that's the case why are more and more teams adding it to their packages?
