Has Tebow seen this yet?

If you are over 10 and you don't already know this, there is no hope for you. You are either no American, or you are Tim Tebow.

Feck that noise, weve got a distinct size and speed advantage so we're running the Power I formation.  We're going to grind it out straight up the middle.  There are no refs so chop block like there is no tomorrow.  Remember the knee is the defense's weekest point.

Step 1: Have a penis.

CSB: on the beach in San Diego, i was mildly emasculated during a game of toss as my passes were those wobbly spirals (think Eli Manning) whereas my wife was throwing these Drew Brees lasers.

Sorry I've always been faster than you fatties and was always a RB or WR. My wobblers are possible to catch!

//Not Tebow
///Has a penis

It ain't all that hard.

...

NOW, throwing a nice tight fast spiral AND putting the ball on target, especially a small area, is a lot tougher, especially if you are moving.

But just throwing a spiral is quite easy.

If you're using your penis to throw, you're doing it wrong.

/and if you get sacked, you're liable to lose a ball.

If he's using his penis to throw, he has the wrong job and could be making a LOT more money in the entertainment industry.

I like your style, the trick is to load up your team with all the relatives you like that way there is no guilt when one of your relatives suffers a crippling injury

I tried for the longest time to hold the ball close to the middle on the laces like Troy Aikman did - that was how I always saw people throw. It helped a lot the last time I played to hold it a little further back like Tony Romo and Ben Roethlisberger do.

If you're having any issues, consider changing up the way you hold the ball.

Stupid diagram is stupid.

It's like those idiotic 4 pix on one page in Outdoor Life or Field and Stream magazines on 'How to make the perfect cast'. Farking useless. Just go out there and throw a football/cast a lure until you figure it TF out.
