How to play foot ball
All about Football
Football is a sport with a couple of other sports in it. Those sports are hockey be cause of the violence and rugby witch is almost the same sport as rugby but with a different colored and shaped ball. Soccer is barley anything like football in soccer you are not allowed to use your hands but in foot ball you are use your hands all the time except from when you kick field goals punt it or kick the ball off. In Italy they call football soccer.
How to play offense
on offense there are usually 9-10 players on the field. Five of those people are blockers, the blockers job is to block the quarterback so he could have enough time to either hand the ball off or throw to one of his recievers. The runingbacks job is to listen where the coach tells him to go or if the blocker does not make a hole for the running back to run in he has to run where ever he can. the quarterback’s job on offense is to find receivers that are open and throw it to them and give the hand-off to the running-back cleanly without fumbling, fumbling means to drop the ball that is pretty much all that fumbling is. And last but not least is the wide receivers and tight end’s.Wide receivers and tight end’s both block but when they are not blocking they are trying to beat their defenders and try to make a catch and score a touchdown.
On the defense their is also 11 men on the field.The positions are conerbacks, line backers safety, strong safety, and the defensive line. The conerbacks job is to guard the wide receivers And try to intercept the ball intercept means for the defense to catch the ball instead of the offense to catch the ball.the safety and strong safety’s job is to make sure nobody gets past and scores a touchdown. The whole defensive line’s job is to tackle the quarterback or make a tackle before he pases the first down line. so pretty much the defense’s job is to tackle the offense before they either score a touchdown or get a touchdown.
Their are many penalties and rules in football.The penalties are holding,clipping,pass- inter- ference,off-side,
faul start,to many players on the field, and illegal formation. Holding is an offensive penalty that happens when a guarder holds the Jersey of the defender that is trying to tackle the quarterback. Clipping is a penalty when you are trying to block someone on a kickoff or on a punt and the guy you have to block gets in front of you and you push them in the back. Pass-inter- ference is a penalty that happens when the corner back pushes and shoves the wide reciver so he can not catch the ball. Off side is when you go past the line of scrimmage, the line of scrimmage is where the ball is placed before the play is started off side is when the defense passes the line of scrimmage, and faul start is when the offense goes pass the line of a scrimmage.
Football is an interesting sport with a couple of sports combined in it. Football is a very cool sport, it is my favorite sport. My favorite team is the New York Jets I Hate the New England patriots.Even though the jets did not make the super bowl I am glad the giants made it.
