Good Looks at The Quarterback Position a Coincidence? I Think Not!

When you look at the position of quarterback, at all levels of competition, have you ever wondered why the quarterback is usually the best looking one on his team? It is no coincidence. Starting at adolescense and pee wee football, the best looking kid is usually the "cool" kid and the "cool" kid, more likely than not, gets the nod at playing quarterback at an early age. The best looking kid usually has the most charisma and confidence, due to being blessed with good looks. Confidence is one of the most important qualities in a quarterback. The QB is the leader of the offense and must be confident, even when facing adversity. Therefore, it is easy to assume that is why most quarterbacks are good looking. Of course this is not always the case, I mean, look at the Mannings for instance. LOL.
