No Guts, No Glory:
In the NFL, quarterback play determines if a coach ultimately keeps his job. It’s a simple concept that most understand. If the quarterback plays well, the team has a better chance to win and the coach has a better chance to keep him job. In contrast, if the quarterback plays poorly, the team’s chances of winning are dramatically reduced and the coach’s job quickly begins to be in jeopardy.

Yardbarker & The Cannons, Pat & Ben listen to some great audio from the website including Derek Jeter, more Rex Ryan and the crazy play in the Redskins play.
