How Quarterbacks Read Defenses

Aaron King

This past weekend, Nashville hosted a sporting spectacle. The NFL draft took place at the end of a long row of bars filled with live music. 

While in town, I was able to talk with Trent Dilfer's QBIQ founder, Chris Hixson. We did the entire podcast in the middle of the action!

This conversation made me rethink how I watch not only quarterbacks but elite players in any sport. 

There are routes that will work and won't work based on the defensive alignment. This means the quarterback can know where he's going with the ball before the snap.
