Exclamation Nfl???

Hi,
My name is Alex. I'm 14 years old. I would want to ask you about the NFL Game rules. I'm recent to the sport but it has grabbed my interest. I am a fins fan from 5 years and back then I didn't even know the basic rules of the beautiful game. But now I know basic terms or positions like Quarter Back, Running Back, Wide Receiver, Fumble, Interception, Touch Down etc. Could you please name the positions, terms and some of the basic rules?

I have recently bought a football and my "personal trainer" (friend who is interested in NFL) and I discovered that I would be a rather OK QB. I would love to follow the steps of my idol Chad Pennington and a number of you are probably thinking "This kid is stupid!" but there is nothing wrong with dreaming.
I'm quite happy with my passing. Approximately 15-25 yards. I'm not sure if that is good.

For any of you that will reply thanks for life!

That's about the same as Chad Pennington already!

I was only joking Chad P has a reputation for a weaker arm, but he is very accurate even over 40 yards, just he can't fire lasers at that range, more touch passes.

Hi Alex... due to the large amount to explain regarding NFL rules etc... as the others have pointed out, you would be best to learn as much as possible by reading up online, using those sites.

But feel free to come back and ask questions. More specific ones are a bit easier to answer!

The main thing to 'get' about the NFL is the 4 downs system.

Once you realise that the framework of pretty much the entire game is 4 chances to get a total of 10 yards, all the rest of it starts to fall into place.

Haha . By the way, do you know perhaps a youth NFL team near Reading, Windsor or Slough? I would really like to start playing a little more serious football .
