Is there any other team sport where the burden of the game falls as heavy as on the quarterback?


I mean, even in baseball, although the pitcher has a very important role, every player also gets a chance to hit the ball. In football it's almost as if it was the quarterback and a bunch other guys. I might add that I don't follow football that much, but that question has always stuck with me from watching the way football is reviewed in ESPN and other media.

    Yeah, so if a team loses 2-0, even though the goalie "allowed" 2 goals, people are mostly going to blame the team for not scoring. However, the quarterback always gets the blame for not pushing the ball enough, not making accurate passes, etc.

    That's a good point, but I don't think the burden of the game falls as much on him, but on the scorers. At least not to the level that the media puts the blame on a quarterback if a football team loses.
