    Does anyone know a good site that has football 101 for women? I seem to recall Phil Simms having a site for women to help them learn football. If anyone has a good site to share, I'd like to show my fiance. Thanks.

    I don't know about a website, but I know I heard about seminars put on by the NFL called Football 101, and they were aimed at women. Isn't there a link on this site that explains alot of the rules, positions and other football stuff?

    football isn't something you learn but something you breath and live.

    You, my dear, are definitely the exception. I wish my wife loved the game like you do. Your dad did a good job...

    I don't know of a website, but here's your book. I ordered one for my daughter when she became a cheerleader:

    "Get Your Own Damn Beer, I'm Watching The Game"
    A woman's guide to football.

    There is a little information on the main menu under "Fan Knowledge" if that would help.

    Just watch some games with her and explain what's going on yourself. That's what I'd do.

    Have you tried to Google "football 101" yet?

    I just did and a fairly decent site can be found at http://football.calsci.com/

    Or better yet, check out the NFL's new site called USA Football. Under the coaching section there seems to be a lot of info you may find helpful.
