“Instincts” at top of list of things Dave Gettleman wants in a quarterback

Give a listen as the GM explains

There are a lot of characteristics quarterbacks need to be successful. For New York Giants general manager Dave Gettleman arm strength, size mobility and other charcteristics pale in comparison to one simple thing — instincts.

“One of the things that we really focus on are instincts. Instincts are very important.

“You can write a laundry list of things you’re looking for ... one of the things I focus on and we talk about all the time is instincts. Does he have a feel for the game? Is he a step ahead of everybody else?

“Instincts and play smarts allow you to play bigger, stronger, faster.”

Listen below as Gettleman explains. And, yes, I apologize for the awkward momentary sideways tilt of the camera.
