To develop the complete player, you must be able to teach the complete technique. Long time NFL quarterback coach, Kevin Gilbride, does just that in this comprehensive look at the quarterback position.

Coach Gilbride takes you through various fundamentals that he has used to help quarterbacks such as Eli Manning and Warren Moon. His focus is on teaching the four most important considerations for building a successful quarterback: judgment, accuracy, vision and arm strength. He not only offers instruction for developing players' physical qualities, but also the mental aspects of the game.

Building the "Ultimate Throwing Machine"

Coach Gilbride demonstrates his vast experience and knowledge in coaching up quarterbacks as he dissects every aspect of the QB position, starting with the proper stance and grip of the ball. Several key throwing mechanics are covered, as well as proper footwork and how to throw from the ground up to maximize power.

Drop Back Techniques

Each type of drop back is covered, including the 3-, 5- and 7-step drop, as well as how to throw on the move either rolling out or moving within the pocket.

You'll learn how to train your quarterbacks to:

  • find throwing windows
  • make reads
  • tie in footwork with route depth to improve throwing accuracy
  • adjust their weight distribution to create the optimal release

Mental Side of the Quarterback

Successful quarterbacks understand the mental aspect of the game just as much as the physical. Coach Gilbride lists the order of thoughts a quarterback should use every time he approaches the line of scrimmage. The quarterback must recognize the time, the front and the coverage before the snap. Following the snap, the quarterback will learn how to look off the coverage before taking their eyes to their primary key.

Coaches and players at any level will benefit from the experience and teaching from this two-time Super Bowl champion.

Go on the field with long-time NFL quarterback coach, Kevin Gilbride, as he takes you through drill progressions that teach the quarterback position from the ground up. You'll learn all the tools that quarterbacks need to improve their mechanics, footwork, accuracy and decision making from the former coach of NFL players like Warren Moon and Eli Manning.

Footwork Drills

The entire foundation of improving quarterbacks is built on training them to be more confident on their feet. Coach Gilbride preaches the importance of footwork and believes throwing the ball starts from the player's base. The drills included work on foot speed, agility, hip movement and flexibility.

Multiple drop drills are shown as Gilbride coaches up the quarterbacks on the 3-, 5- and 7-step drops. Your players will learn why keeping their feet and body pointed in the right direction will help them throw accurate passes with more zip.

Movement Drills

Quarterbacks won't have the luxury of a clean pocket on every drop back, which is why learning to step up in the pocket and scramble to find open receivers is essential in the development of elite passers. Movement drills train the quarterback to move up in the pocket with a tight base, which allows for a quicker release of the ball. By training your quarterbacks to keep their eyes down field, they'll be able to scan the defense and spot teammates while evading pressure.
