So take heed of the advice in this guide to make sure your rookie will grow, in time, to be a full grown veteran quarterback!
Did you know? That many rookie quarterbacks that start in their first year are prone to permanent damage to their confidence and bodies that may not be repairable? You probably didn't, but it is important that you do. Often times when a rookie quarterback becomes a starter they are walking into dangerous situations. Many teams that place a rookie at the helm do not have the surrounding pieces in place to ensure their success. This leads to formation of bad habits in the rookie, where he may be prone to taking to much of the workload and blame on his shoulders due to his youthful exuberance and desire to make a difference. When things do not go his way, he is prone to lapses in concentration and confidence, which can lead to worse fortunes for himself and the team as a whole.

So by now you know about all the pros and cons of starting a rookie quarterback on Sundays, and you have selected your ideal prospect to play the position! That's fantastic!

NFL fans are the true lifeblood of your franchise and the league in general, as they provide the necessary ticket and TV revenue that you need to keep your team going. However, they are an impatient lot, as it is rare to find a fan that is willing to stick by a quarterback through thick and thin. Even if your decision to start a rookie quarterback is at first popular with the fan base, it may not always be so. Your rookie quarterback is DEFINITELY going to have moments where the common fan will look, from his seat perched on high, at the decision he just made and shout "WHAT THE (bleep) WAS THAT?!?! BOOOO!!!" Do not allow this to discourage you, as you know what is best for the team, however... it is important not to damage your young quarterbacks confidence. Know when it is appropriate to let him learn from his mistakes, and also when you should sit him down to prevent doing any damage that will last long term. Remember, to the common fan, the most popular guy in town is the #2 quarterback.
