This book, the second in the Football Morsels series, picks up where the first one left off and expands on the subject of the value of NFL quarterbacks in the modern era. This time around, we will focus on how “The Supporting Cast” of the QB affects their performance and winning in general. We will review and quantify the quality of the rest of the offense, defense and special teams as well as the impact of different offensive schemes run in the NFL today. In order to identify their influence on the offensive side of the ball, we will rank and rate the best skill players at the running back and wide receiver position then circle back to how they helped or hurt the QB performance. Finally, we will again present our favorite Bonus Morsels. This time around, we will take on frivolous subjects like the missed field goal for touchdown, the fair-catch kick rule, a shaggy-haired wild bison and review some outstanding teams that missed the playoffs. A thorough analysis of winning records, offensive and defensive ranks and point differentials will yield a fact-based discussion on The Best Team Ever. We will also tackle a more serious subject – the balancing act the Commissioner faces between player safety, rule changes and handing out of stiff fines.
