RSP Boiler Room No.85: QB Processor Speed


More examples that reveal how a tap or too of the foot can be the difference between a winning and losing quarterback.

The feet tell you a lot about a quarterback’s feel for the game and how he’s feeling on the field. I’ve been saying this for a few years.

If you understand what the quarterback should see and how he should act, his footwork will indicate several things about his demeanor—including confidence, trust, preparation, impatience, nerves, and doubt. Good quarterbacking is accurately reacting to what happens before one’s eyes without unnecessary hesitation.

The three plays from Sefo Liufau and Cooper Rush in this RSP Boiler Room illustrate when hesitation is a product of preparation and when it’s an indication of doubt.

Most of the quarterbacks in this class—an many starting in the NFL—have film in their portfolios that reveal doubt on specific plays. Pro defenses can be excellent at creating it in even the best passers.

But the best don’t let it creep into their head and set up camp there.
