Al Bundy Saints Fans?
 
I often wonder who has played the game at any organized level after reading threads.

I am curious as to how many fans have played the game. If you wish to put your experience in your reply that would be great. Also, please do not think that not having played is any reflection on you or your football IQ, there are a lot of high football IQ people that never played.

I for one am a fan of women's beach volleyball, cant say that I have ever played. :-)

I played for 7 years, Jr. High through High School. I had scouts looking until I tore my hamstring middle of my Sr. year.

I went to a small A school so we did not have the luxury of playing one position. I played OT/DT , and special teams on both sides. In my Sr. year I switched to OG after dropping down to 225lbs.

I also played 9 years of baseball (Catcher) for what ever that is worth.

Played for a local, NOLA Catholic school, freshman to Senior year. Average at best. I know a LOT more about football now than I ever did back then. If I had the appreciation for the sport then, as I do now, I feel like I would have been a lot better. But as they say, hindsight is 20/20...

Never played,not even once.
This type of football wasnt popular over here when i was at school.
Anyway,not much call for someone 5`7 without blistering speed.

I played in high school for only my senior year. I was a LT/DE/Special Teams player. I also played basketball for three years after I decided that I was tired of playing the trumpet in band. :-) For whatever it is worth, I have also coached basketball at the peewee and AAU/YBOA level for 10+ years now and pride myself on being a constant student of several games.

I have played rugby football for 32 years. Our team played six man football in high school. Back then I could not even break that little roster. The only sport I was into growing up was Martial Arts. That doesn't really translate well to football except for tackling.
I didn't really understand football until I came to the BNG and read what our members had to say and started studying. God I love this place!:saintsfan:

Don't count your self out brother, in the age where PRO football players do Pilates, martial arts do translate in areas like balance, agility, limberness, and it helped keep my joints and connective tissue strong.

I still cant figure out how after all those years of football and playing catcher my hips and knees are fine. My shoulders are shot.

In some instanced people that didn't play but learned on their own have a higher football IQ as they have studied the game more than those that have played. Those that played "usually" understand positional concepts, like especially on defense it is not so much as having skilled players as having players that play well together. Explains how Dallas could have big names on their defense and not have a highly regarded defense. The O-Line is another area where team work and synchronization are extremely important.
