Technical Football Question


My Learned Friends if you could provide me with your knowledge/views/education/half assed opinions I would be very appreciative.

 

I have been discussing with a friend at work here in Oz who also has seen the light and follows the NFL a theory that never seems to get discussed.

 

With Running Backs alot of the credit for their success seems to go to the O-Line (quite rightly) and there own skill ability to find a hole, but the QB never gets mentioned in terms of a RB success other than when he scares the D with hsi deep threat and keeps them down to a Max of 7 in the box.

 

However on every running play (excluding wildcat) the QB is involved by handing the ball to the RB.  Now are there diffent skill levels for QBs in their timing of the handoff, or their hiding the handoff and buying the RB an extra half a second of hesitation from the LB's.

 

Now on a delay, I can definitly see the QB having a crucial role in waiting just long enough for the handoff for the hole ot open, but not too long so as the hole closes again. And I can definitly see some QB's being much more effective than others and contriburting massively to their RB's success

 

But even on the quick turn around and give are their differing levels of QB skill that help a RB gain an extra 1/4 of second to get through a hole or whatever.

 

OR

 

Is this just them nut cast Aussies talking again and not understanding football,
