5 Best Football Receiver Gloves 2

Posted on July 05, 2017 by Sivaram Sundarasamy

glovesFootball, being a very popular sport, does need its players to make an investment in the attires that they show up on the field in. Receiver gloves are one of these attires for the field. Both adults and kids require these gloves for the sport in order to lay like pros and make the games interesting.

  • When looking for receiver gloves, it is best to consider three major qualities that our chosen fit should pass in order for you to give your wallet a green light to let go of money from your wallet.
  • The range of sizes of the gloves. A proper receiver glove company should be I a position to provide for a wide range of sizes that fit very nice and snug. Both adults and kids have the size to age difference in size of the football gloves and they should be catered for by the company in question.
  • In addition to this, the gloves should also be of a high-quality material, capable of withstanding many games or rounds of games without looking like slippery eels on balls. The best gloves provide as much grip in their first game as well as they do five games later, still giving that wonderful grip that gives a receiver satisfaction every time the ball comes their way.
  • Other than that, the gloves should no doubt give the receiver good extra protection for his hands so that they are able to grip the ball as firmly from the beginning to the end of the game. Without this, they do not serve the receiver too well.
  • The ratings are given by customers for football gloves and brand of the company. The former customer is the most honest person while looking for information on how good pair of gloves is. Many good reviews and demand for a certain brand should automatically tell you that they help the job get done and efficiently at that.
  • The gloves should be light in weight and easy to work with. Such gloves are good because they help the receiver to remain at a steady state as the ball lands in their hands when it forcefully lands into their hands. Heavy gloves work as a disadvantage for the receiver.
  • Cost. Other than the good qualities and other praises people have for these gloves, it is your wallet that will decide which gloves you will select according to your budget. You should, however, be in a position to get good value for your money. Read the rest of this entry →

      December 10, 2018 | 3:36 pm

      Warfield-DolphinsThe Sports Then and Now Vintage Athlete of the Month was perfection personified as a wide receiver during his NFL career.

      Known for his fluid movement, grace and jumping ability during his 13 year NFL career, Paul Warfield was an eight-time Pro Bowl selection and key performer for the Miami Dolphins during their 17-0 campaign in 1972.

      Because the role of the wide receiver has changed so much and today’s star receivers get the ball thrown to them so many more times than in the pre-1978 era, Warfield is often overlooked when discussing all-time greats.

      But, think about this. Warfield averaged 20.1 yards per catch for his career (427 receptions, 8,565 yards) and 19.9% of his receptions went for touchdowns (85). By comparison, Julio Jones has averaged 15.5 yards per catch for his career and a touchdown in 6.9% of his receptions (46 TDs in 669 catches). Antonio Brown averages 13.4 ypc and a TD in 8.7% (70 of 804) of his receptions. Terrell Owens averaged 14.8 ypc and a TD in 14.2% of his receptions. Even Jerry Rice, considered the greatest receiver of all-time, averaged only 14.8 ypc and a TD in 12.7% of his catches.
