    On nfl.com they had a video on how to throw a perfect spiral. Don’t remember who said it, but if you additionally grab the ball with your index finger in between seam before the laces you got one more pressure point to rotate the ball.

    I tried it .. needs some practice, but I got a much better spiral with that. Thought I’d share that.
