Dear Aspiring Quarterbacks: Don’t Ever, Ever Do This

So, let’s say you dream of playing quarterback. Here’s Vikings playoff starter Joe Webb to demonstrate one thing you should never do.

1. This is Joe Webb. After not throwing a single pass during the season, Webb is starting for the Vikings in their playoff game against the Packers after Christian Ponder was ruled out.

Webb’s widely regarded as a great running QB, but it remained to be seen how he would handle throwing the ball.

2. One thing Webb has had trouble with is, uh, doing things like this.

4. Joe Webb was sacked twice in the first half. He completed three passes. That’s not good.
