Engrossing, albeit a little overwhelming at times. The quarterback is hands down one of the most important positions in football. Quarterbacks are generally the highest paid, the ones who lead and inspire the rest of the team, are the face of their franchise, and will always get all the praise... and the blame. John Feinstein follows 5 quarterbacks, their ups and downs, and what sets them apart as some of the smartest quarterbacks in the league. The five that he highlights are: Andrew Luck, Alex Smith, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Joe Flacco, and Doug Williams. Quarterback mainly follows the 2017 season while reminiscing about years past. It's an enlightening read and a wonderful play by play of games and player's careers. Feinstein makes sure to throw in commentary on kneeling for the anthem, Donald Trump, black quarterbacks, CTE scans, and many other touchy issues, which I enjoyed. A must read for football fans.
