Re: NFL - Teach a noob
I watch football, though not with keen eye that most posters in this forum do. What I'm always curious about is how to people judge players that aren't regularly shown on the TV screen, like cornerbacks and safeties. They're really only shown from snap to tackle when someone gets a reception. Are those reputations based on statistics? I've also found it very hard to judge O-lineman, what am I supposed to be looking for in terms of what makes a skilled offensive lineman? Of course not allowing a sack is a big thing, but I'm speaking more on technique and the like.
