[quote=Big Kahuna Burgher]No, Ben and every other elite QB in the NFL calls their own protections at the line, Ben also makes the line calls he took over duties from Faneca 2 season's ago, half the posters on this forum probably knew that.Originally Posted by "mr.pittsburgh":2a2dq2az
And no Ben isn't just pointing at a LB at the edge, you really don't know what you are talking about, every NFL QB comes to the line and counts the number of defenders in the box , than he can redirect his protection strong or weak by changing who the offense is recognizing as the (mike) LB, if he wants his protection redirected strongside he will make the (sam) LB the new (Mike), when you see a QB calling out the Mike he is setting his protection.
You sure you played college football? next time you want to call people clowns and ridicule them make certain you know what you are talking about, there are plenty of posters here who also played college football including me, there were former NFL players at the Trib forum, if you feel the need to back up your opinions try using facts, and the rest of the board can decide if you are credible or not, otherwise you will just make a fool out of yourself.[/quote:2a2dq2az]
Okay buddy, since you are such an internet tough guy with a gay a** avatar I will set you straight. I played college football at the university of Alabama. I was a 2nd string center after walking on as a freshmen. I never got a start, but was on the kickoff return, and PAT teams. Yes, I do know what I am talking about. The calls are made at the line, usually a designate makes the call. That is usually done by the center. The QB's job, is to help out as much as possible. He will point to the edges and help the tackles, but it is the center's job to control the middle.
I do not know what your problem is with me on this site, nor do i care. I did play, I do not care if you believe it or not, but you armchair QBs don't know what goes on. Get a clue, trying to prove me wrong when I HAVE BEEN THERE. I know what it is like, and I know what I am talking about.
god some of you are ridiculous...
