Sports Psychology And Football: How To Be A Great Quarterback – One Very Important Skill

I have been watching and loving professional football for many years.

I have also studied the quarterback position very carefully. This position is quite complicated and the outstanding quarter backs do a lot of mental and physical things very well:

They communicate effectively with their teammates, coordinators and coaches.

They have great vision.

They read defenses well.

They have great footwork, agility and balance.

They can throw a variety of passes-long balls, short balls, screen passes and medium length passes.

They have quick releases.

They are adept at faking with the ball.

They know how to manage the clock.

They avoid making costly errors and turnovers.

They can motivate and inspire their teammates.

They have a good sense of the talent on their team.

They develop a chemistry and special connection with their receivers.

They can scramble when necessary.

They can throw from the pocket and on the run.

They sell the running play effectively when they เว็บตรงทางเข้า มือถือ use play action.

They have good relationships with their teammates.

They take responsibility for their actions.

They can remain calm, focused and confident throughout the game.

They avoid getting too high or too low.

They can be resilient when they are down and after suffering a defeat.

Football fans love to talk about their top quarterbacks. My favorites are

Joe Montana, Peyton Manning, Dan Marino, Terry Bradshaw, Tom Brady, John Elway, Drew Brees, Ben Roethlisberger, Troy Aikman, Aaron Rogers, Roger Staubach, Fran Tarkenton, Joe Namath and Johnny Unitas.

It is a little early to know for sure, but I think Johnny Manziel may turn out to be the next great athlete to play the quarterback position.

One thing that the great quarterbacks do that younger and less talented players do not seem to be able to do is the faking out of defensive players with their eyes.
