No position defines a modern NFL franchise like the quarterback, and in the past decade the boom of the specialized and high-stakes private quarterback-coach business, with its pageantry-for-boys vibe, has transformed the position and the game. In The QB, bestselling author Bruce Feldman explores this shift by chronicling a tumultuous year--the most significant in the history of the position's development--inside the secretive world of star recruits and gurus who are shaping football's future. Over the course of the year, we meet Trent Dilfer, the quarterback who, despite winning the Super Bowl, never became a superstar, as he channels his passion for reverse-engineering the QB position into running the prestigious Elite 11 camp and starting his own training business. The New Yorker profiles guru Steve Clarkson, and George Whitfield, whom Sports Illustrated calls the "Quarterback Whisperer," gets a regular spot on ESPN's College GameDay. Russell Wilson, at 5'11, wins the Super Bowl; and for the first time in more than 60 years a sub-6-foot QB, Whitfield's talented but antic-prone student "Johnny Football" Manziel, gets drafted in the first round, forcing NFL power brokers to reexamine how they look at the position. Along the way, The QB examines how advanced analysis has taken root in football, revealing what few know about creating the perfect QB. From the computer/brain analysis company trying to quantify how playmakers think to the biomechanics expert who "fixed" Tim Tebow, to Dilfer looking for the "Dude Qualities" he believes predict NFL success, Feldman shares findings that often run in the face of decades of conventional wisdom. Never before has the game so relied on the development of the quarterback, and in The QB, Bruce Feldman offers a compelling and highly entertaining first look at the future of football's marquee position.
