The Season is right around the corner and WE ARE PUMPED TO SEE SOME ACTION!
How important is ball control? What would it do for a team to have less turnovers? If your special teams dropped less kick returns would it lead to more victories? Does a fumble equal losing the championship game?
The fumble is the instance when a ball carrier loses possession of the football and at the same moment their fans lose a bit of trust in that player’s security with the football. When the fans lose trust, the team loses a little piece of itself. The second that pigskin is dropped that player creates despair in the hearts of 1000’s of fans and his very own teammates. Not to mention the effect it has on the confidence of the player that just lost the ball and witnessed his opponents pick it up and run it back for a touchdown. No one wants to see this happen especially in a game that is critical for the team’s season. No one as much as your team at Edge Sports where we create the latest technology in ball control.
The design team at Edge Sports spent months watching plays, going over fumble after fumble, dropped kicks and footballs being stripped from the hands of some of the best players out there. We wanted to create the best most durable product that would reduce turnovers, create more opportunities to score and have less opportunity to lose the trust of their fans and fellow teammates.
Who can forget the infamous fumble by running back James Stewart of the Jacksonville Jaguars? It was the 1996 AFC playoffs against the New England Patriots. With 2 minutes left the Jaguars had possession around midfield Stewart had the ball on a run and lost control, you can imagine the crowd and the heartbreaking reaction as they watched Otis Smith pick up Stewart’s fumble and run it back 47 yards for a game ending touchdown to clinch the AFC title and destroy the dreams of the Jags moving forward. If only Stewart had on STRONGHOLD Wristbands!
It was Super Bowl 28 Buffalo Bills and Dallas Cowboys were battling it was 13-6 at halftime in the Bills favor. Then only 45 seconds into the 3rd Quarter Hall of Fame running back Thurman Thomas had the ball ripped from his control by Leon Lett, Dallas defensive back James Washington picked it up carrying it 46 yards for a touchdown turning the momentum and the game over to Dallas from there on it was all Cowboys ending in a 30 -13 victory. That turnover cost the Bills the game. If Thurman had Edge Sports STRONGHOLD Wristband Grips that whole game could have turned out different.
These are 2 of the most memorable turnovers in football. Tom Herman once said, “If you win the turnover battle and the explosive play in the same game you win that game 98 percent of the time.” He continued with “Now, can you win it with only winning one and losing one? Sure. But if you lose both, you only win 2 percent of the games that you play.” Coming from a man that lead Houston to a 13-1 season and Ohio State to 38-3 over a 3-year run these are powerful words. One of our favorites here at Edge Sports is “Win the turnover battle.” Yes, it is a battle of power, strategy and ball control. “If you win the turnover battle, you’re going to win more then you lose. Quite a bit more than you lose.”
If you don’t believe Herman just look at his one loss the 13-1 season it was at Connecticut where Huston suffered a massacre in the turnover battle in 4-0 apocalypse. That was the only defeat of the season and it was the only turnover battle they lost all season.
STRONGHOLD Wristbands are designed in every detail to help prevent massacres like Huston had, they are made to help the greatest players accomplish more then a few extra touch downs. Edge Sports crafted these to take the game to a new level where turnovers don’t control who wins and loses but pure skill and amazing plays do. We want more action, more touchdowns, more players being able to trust that the ball is securely tucked and no amount of hits, 300-pound guys pulling on your arms or impact with the ground will let that pigskin baby come loose. With the confidence our players will have wearing STRONGHOLD Wristbands we know that amazing plays will happen. Plays that the world of football has never seen. Let’s change the game of football, give every player the best technology to score more, run more, catch everything thrown at them and plow through the biggest defense out there knowing they have the ball in their control. As a football fan I want to see the highest scoring, most exciting football ever witnessed. With Edge Sports fans from coast to coast and all around the world will get to see the most amazing game ever played hit new levels of excitement.
