Call an audible

Football Concept: Call an Audible

This happens when the quarterback goes up to the line of scrimmage, sees a defensive alignment he wasn’t expecting, and adjusts by yelling out a new play. You call this calling an audible.

How the football saying can be used in real life:

You go outside for a run and then realize that it’s raining. You might have to call an audible and go to the gym instead.
Perhaps, at work and you are developing a new product and just a month before the product is to launch, your competitor beats you to it. Now you have to call an audible and adjust your product to be something better than theirs.
