A great quarterback and his offensive line.
These two positions both require extreme skill, and are in my opinion, the most important people on the field. Most fans and players would probably agree with me about quarterbacks, but offensive linemen? Aren’t they just HUGE people? Not at all.
Offensive linemen begin and end the play. These giant human beings aren’t just pushing their weight around. It’s about a series of small things put together in order to overtake the defense. If one of these things goes wrong, then a defensive end or linebacker will make his way through and crush the quarterback. BAM! The play is dead.
When you’re on the offensive line, it begins with getting set. Your first step off the line isn’t a power move, but one of finesse. Actually, it’s about 6 inches. No more, no less. That first step out of their stance allows these enormous human beings to gain the proper amount of speed, momentum, and strength to defend their quarterback. After that first pop to the chest to the defense, the offensive line will drive their feet in short, quick steps.
It’s a series of small things done well that help them drive results.
Here’s my question for you: What are the small things that you’re executing today to achieve the results that you want 2, 3 or 5 years from now? How much do you want to succeed? Most people cut corners.
