    Scouts know the most meaningless stat in football is passing yards. Scouts measure from point of reception only. Thus a screen pass thrown five yards behind the line of scrimmage and is run for a 80 TD is -5 yards passing. Hence the yards after catch is the most under-rated stat. Using those type numbers a guy like Alabama’s Tua is a so-so QB but Bama’s receivers are off the charts. That is why you see plenty of unknown QB’s go high in the NFL draft. Scouts know what is important. Give me the Niners QB any day to build a team around and you can have the Rams Goff.

    No. 10,

    (1) Arms help one find the best center of gravity in order to chest-trap a soccer ball. (2) They even help one pull back force and then release it for headers. (3) The arms allow one to find center of gravity so as to hit the ball just right, at the right time/place, especially for crosses. (4) Not least, Goalkeepers need/use their arms–like all the time. (5) Even goal kicks (see 3)…

    With the paucity of scoring in soccer, you’d think use of the legs was also prohibited. I get it: the guys who make the rules for this sports don’t want scoring, which is the guiding principle behind letting only the goalie use his/her arms, and also the stupid offside rule. Can you imagine having an offside rule in basketball? That wouldn’t happen, because basketball is an American sport, and Americans actually LIKE scoring.
