I want to be a Quarterback But...

Intimidated by intense football threads? Don't be... learn about football, the Washington Redskins and more.

^^ Dude I'm sorry but at 5'8 131 pounds with small hands you're out of luck trying to be a varsity QB. My only advice to you is to just work hard and try to prove me wrong :)

Well actually I've been measured and weighed...since the time of my first post, I'm now 146. I'm not 5'8 I'm actually 5'10, and expected to grow more the doctor said. I've also got fairly decent sized to large hands.

All this was shown at the Doc's office. After which I asked him, "Could I make the team as QB?" To which he replyed "If you keep training and gaining weight like you are, you'll bulk up quickly and easily be able to play the position." So I dunno. I was better off physically than I thoguht. I must have underestimated myself.

Well to put out the good news, I'm now 151. I've also improved my drops. The question still remains can I read a defense well, and learn how to manipulate safeties. Only time will tell.

This squad is just simply a backyard football squad. We play every year... When were all together it's great competition!
My younger brother is the best out of all of us but he wont be there, he's going to dental school in NYU now... He'll be at practice today though, hope you guys are there, like I said before, I want us all to meet. A lot of my boys are on this site as well, they just dont post.

For anyone who wants to get together and run a game, lets do it. I already have someone else on this site who has offered 5 ppl. With CLL, Me, and CP, that's 4 on 4... not bad. We can do better though. Can anyone here throw 55 yards?
