Tweet O' the Day: Aaron Murray in the Film Room

Any successful quarterback in THE. NATIONAL. FOOTBALL. LEAGUE would tell you that, to have any succcess in the professional ranks, you have to spend twice the time in the film than you do on the field actually making the throws. Having the physical tools to be a great quarterback aren't prerequisites as long as you can anticipate the coverage and make the correct read every time. It helps to have a howitzer on your shoulder, but it isn't a strict requirement.

By all accounts, Aaron Murray is quite a student of the game. He's always in the film room trying to spot tendencies and soft spots in the defense and determine ways to exploit them. Yesterday he was caught doing just such after practice by his bosom buddy, Christian Robinson.


He was either intently brushing up on Boise's 4-3 or Facebook stalking. I'm going to insist that he was checking out that All-American d-tackle Boise has, rather than spooling up Jenna Jameson's latest filmography.

Either way, keeping his nose in that film room is a very good thing.

  1. Spending time in the film room is not a substitute for proper execution. Murray had 3 weeks to study film of UCF and didn't score a TD. Hopefully, we'll see some better execution this season in big games from #11.

  5. Watching film won't build muscle memory, practicing will.
