While every member of a football team is vital to its success, quarterbacks have a uniquely important role in the offensive lineup. They control where the ball goes and are thusly the focus of just about every opposing player. If you are a new quarterback, there are a few things you need to know if you want to serve your team as best as possible. Here are ten important tips for quarterbacks who want to be successful in the game of football.
Last year, a team from the Central Division were the Eastern Conference champions, but with LeBron gone, that seems very unlikely. However, some of these teams show a lot of promise. So, how far are the teams from the Central Division gonna go?
The NFL's current rule allowing teams to only use one style of helmet per year has restricted teams from breaking out some of the best uniforms of all time, so we are going to look through some of the NFL throwbacks that need to become team's full-time uniforms.
Let me be clear: I believe Ben Simmons was the best rookie (yes, he was a rookie; this is not up for debate) and deserved to win the Rookie of the Year award. However, Donovan Mitchell came out of nowhere and made it a much tighter race than anyone anticipated heading into the season. The Utah Jazz had been written off by many following Gordon Hayward's departure for the Boston Celtics, but as the year progressed, Mitchell began to show flashes of greatness; those flashes turned into stretches and those stretches turned into wins, playoff wins in fact.

With just 441 hits, a career batting average of .243, and only six career home runs, Moe Berg is hardly worthy of his own exhibit at the MLB Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y. However, it is present nonetheless. In fact, it not only is there, but the curators of the exhibit are even proud to showcase it. Why is this? What could possibly merit this man having his own exhibit? The answer to that question is as convoluted and unique as Moe Berg's life itself. You see, even though as a baseball player he was at best average, he was an extraordinary man who encompassed so much more than the game he loved. He played a 15-year career during the Great Depression and World War II, and it was during this time that he demonstrated a great love for his country as well. The crux of the matter is this: Moe Berg also made his mark as a World War II spy. Moe Berg did intelligence work for the Office of Strategic Services, which was the forerunner of the CIA. Even though this man never played a full season in the MLB, his work in the war effort is what has earned him this unique exhibit at Cooperstown.
