If they ever tell you, "You're too small to play quarterback." Just remember Fran Tarkenton and Joe Theisman. Great passers, both. Fran was a scrambling genius.

I like his quotes about keying on the middle linebacker and free safety. Time crunch decision-making in a nutshell.

As a former HS QB, I still can't fathom sticking my arm fully toward my target...good ol' 90-degree elbow.
