5 Reasons Why Quarterbacks Should Totally Go into Business for Themselves

football.headerresized.png

We all know there's no "I" in team, but yakking about the Super Bowl with @Racecar75 got me thinking that there are several reasons why star quarterbacks should rush - not run - toward self-employment post-NFL.

 

1. They know how to prepare. Quarterbacks watch miles of footage during the season, studying the competition for gaps in coverage and other weaknesses they can turn into opportunities come game day.

 

2. They have a padded playbook... Quarterbacks must memorize novel-thick books of set plays designed to address every possible circumstance on the field. 

 

3. ...but can think on their feet. If Plan A doesn't work, there's always a Plan B. 

 

4. They delegate wisely. Quarterbacks know exactly where their guys are on the gridiron and must decide within seconds who gets the pass.

 

5. They learn from, but don't dwell on, their mistakes. Mid-game, there's no time to fixate on a fumble. The best quarterbacks are able to process what went wrong and adapt as necessary in time for the very next play.

 

What do you think? Will you be watching the Super Bowl this Sunday?

Emily, 

First off, quarterbacks in the NFL dont go into business for themselves. Rather, they go into business OWNERSHIP for themselves and hire managers while they collect checks. Not only do they already have the start up capital, they also have a recognizable name. Which bodes well for investors. Many of them do own busninesses post NFL. However, their involvement in day to day actions is limited

@Racecar75, great points all! But if Tom Brady ever wanted to start his own small business in my town so he could enjoy the simple life, I wouldn't say no :smileywink:

Hi Emily,

 

With that kind of money I would retire to some place far far away.

@Sangeethmathew they won't be needing a Kickstarter campaign for seed funding, that's for sure!
