In news about myself and continuing my recreational sports playing, I am in a flag football league on sundays. I typically play DB, Kick/Punt Returner, and occasionally some wideout. Well this weekend our Quarterback was not there and since our line could not block anybody, we made the genious decision to put me at quarterback.
Let's just say that I've got a baseball throwing motion and I only throw 50% spirals. I'm 5 foot 8 while the lineman on both teams were 6 foot plus so I never could see down field and I had to jump throw to get the ball over the on coming rush.
So... Simon's statline looked something like this. 60 yards rushing, 7-13 for 70 yards. Zero touchdowns. Two interceptions. One interception that was batted in their air by an oncoming rusher and caught by a different DE. And one that was knocked out of a receivers hands in the end zone and bobbled in the air by a crowd and taken down by a DB.
Next game we gratefully move back to the comfort zone.
