What does QB stand for?


QB means quarterback, which is a position in football that runs the offense by passing, running, or handing off the ball. It is the most important position in most levels of football, especially the NFL.

QBs are responsible for communicating plays to the rest of the offense when they huddle or when the team is at the line. It often appears as QB1 or QB2 in fantasy football leagues to indicate the starting and second starting quarterbacks on a team. Some examples of famous QBs include Joe Montana, Brett Favre, John Elway, Dan Marino, Terry Bradshaw, Johnny Unitas, Peyton Manning, and Tom Brady.
