In the world of modern football, no position defines a franchise like the quarterback. The QB is the story of a year in the making of those star players and of the most significant year in QB development in sports history. It is also the year five-foot ten-inch Russell Wilson wins the Super Bowl and, for the first time in over sixty years, a sub-six-foot QB, Johnny Manziel, gets drafted in the first round, forcing NFL power brokers to reexamine how they look at the position—and the game. To tell the story of all that goes on to create the perfect quarterback, bestselling author Bruce Feldman gained unique access to "Johnny Football" (that's Johnny Manziel), George Whitfield, and many other players in what has become a specialized and high-stakes business. The QB tells the story of the interlocking paths of the most fascinating characters involved in this secretive world, examining how advanced analysis has taken root in football. The stories of these men illustrate how high the stakes of the quarterback's game really are, taking listeners on a compelling journey into the heart of America's beloved game.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Bruce Feldman has an uncanny ability to show in rich detail the guts of the real world of football. Joe Tessitore, ESPN play-by-play commentator
“Whether it’s your NFL team or your fantasy team, nothing will make or break the franchise like picking your quarterback. In The QB, Bruce Feldman offers unprecedented, and at times counterintuitive, insight into what to look for in the NFL QB of the future.” Matthew Berry, ESPN senior fantasy sports analyst and New York Times bestselling author of Fantasy Life
“There are lots of sports reporters but very few great reporters who happen to cover sports…Bruce Feldman has proven to be one of the latter. His deep dives on recruiting and the University of Miami broke new ground and gave deeper understanding to fans of all stripes. His book examining the rising importance of the modern quarterback will do the same.” Chuck Todd, NBC News
“Detailed, technical breakdown of the modern QB with juicy inside stuff on Johnny Football, Trent Dilfer, and the world of gurus. Sports Illustrated
