1- Ball Carriage
Holding the ball correctly on the dropback helps keep themovement smooth and efficient and will actually improvethe rotation of the football. Here, Carson Palmer does agreat job of carrying the ball in a relaxed and efficientmanner.
2 - Shoulders onDropback
The shoulders should be slightly open to the field withthe facemask down the middle of the field. This allowsthe quarterback full vision of the field and does notallow the defense to see where he is going with thefootball.
3 - Plant-foot
The back (plant-foot) should be perpendicular to thetarget area just as the quarterback is stepping into thethrow. This greatly increases the accuracy of the throw.
5 - Target-step
The target step should be short and across animaginary line just to the inside of the plant-step. Thisshorter step will keep the throwing motion quick,compact, and allow the athlete to use more of his legsand shoulders during the throwing motion, therebyincreasing the accuracy and velocity of the trajectory.
4 - Forward Shoulder
The forward shoulder should be pointed at thetarget area just before the quarterback steps into thethrow. By waiting until the throw, the QB will hold thedefense and not allow them to read where the ball isgoing. Pointing the front shoulder to thetarget area increases the accuracy of the throw.

6 - ThrowingElbo7- Vertical Head8 - ThrowingHand9 - ThrowingShoulder10 - Trail Foot
During the throwing motion, keep the throwing elbow at,or above the throwing shoulder.The head should be kept as vertical as possiblethroughout all throws.The throwing hand should pronate (palm down) during theend of the motion, and should end up at theopposite front pocket area. This is Marc Bolger of theN.F.L.’s St. Louis Rams. Marc also does a great job of using the shoulder-spin to get more rotation and velocityon the ball (see-below).The throwing shoulder should end up pointing at thetarget area after the throw (shoulder-spin). Thisproduces results immediately, and increases therotation of the football.The trail foot should stay close to the ground throughoutthe throw, and end up even with thetarget step after the throw.
