Many quarterbacks feel that it hinders their accuracy and few are willing to change their normal routine to experiment with the gloves. Personally I don't throw with them on just because I like to be able to feel the ball when I throw.

Most quarterbacks in any age level is more comfortable throwing with no glove on their throwing hand. however if you where a glove, then you will have more grip on the ball. it depends on the comfort zone of the quarterback

Why do football players not close their gloves?

Typically receivers don't close their gloves because their hands have to snap shut around the ball and closing the back of the glove hinders how fast the hands can close. As a simple illustration, try on a pair of receiver gloves and try to make a fist with the gloves with the backs closed then with them open. You should be able to feel the greater freedom and quickness when closing down on the ball.

Why Football Gloves Are A Great Catch?

A mere thirty years ago, football gloves were almost non-existent. The gridiron warriors that did battle for the public's viewing pleasure sometimes wrapped their wrists and fingers in tape, but seldom if ever did they cover their hands in comfortable and all-encompassing gloves that maximized their performance. Fast forward to today, and a receiver or defender without gloves is about as common as a receiver or defender without a helmet. Here are some of the main reasons that football gloves can improve your performance on the field. The primary function of football gloves is to provide grip for the person that wears them. Being able to grip the ball more effectively can lead to more completed passes and less fumbles. From a defensive standpoint, gloves can mean more pass breakups and more interceptions. In short, they are designed to enhance the natural abilities of football players of all sizes and skill levels. Football gloves can also be a means of preventing or minimizing hand injuries, as they provide a thorough and flexible covering for the back of the hand and the palms. Cuts and bruises are likely to be reduced, and some football gloves even come with built in pads that will minimize the impact of certain hits. In recent years, football gloves have crossed through the realm of form and function and into the realm of style and team pride. Companies now compete for the rights to do official custom designs for professional and college teams around the nation. Some gloves are flashy displays of team pride that are full of bright colors. Others are stealth-mode, all-black versions that can complement nearly any color scheme. Many football players of all levels believe that if you look good you feel good, and if you feel good you play good. If it is indeed as simple as that, then getting your hands on a quality set of football gloves will improve your game.
