Throwback Thursday: Learn to play quarterback with Bill Walsh and Joe Montana

Last week I gave you guys a gem of a video where former 49ers coach, Jim Harbaugh gave a long presentation on quarterbacking. Well when I set that bar, I always need to raise it. So I found another quarterback video to continue my epic on quarterbacking. Obviously we're due for some tension and drama, so I'll be on the lookout for  Episode III: Jimmy Raye's Revenge, but for now, this is pretty cool.

This wonderful feat of cinematic entertainment involves Bill Walsh discussing QB fundamentals like the snap, and the quick step. But Walsh can't stop there. Most of these things have hired actors you'd see later in unrelated workout videos like Insanity: Now we're not kidding you will throw up, and Zen and the art of bashing your head through cinder blocks. This is because the guy doing these videos has eaten up the entire budget just for the appearance payment. No, here we get Joe Montana doing the various motions. It's pretty nostalgic seeing these two again and makes me really miss the good ole days of when they were exchanging signals.

There are other parts of this video I didn't put up, but head over to YouTube if you want to check them out and learn more about Walsh's philosophy. I just love this stuff.
