Re: QB Footwork comparison of Jamarcus Russell and Drew Brees
and this is not the first time this week I've heard the claim "a strong arm isn't everything".
Fran Tarkenton did a spot on a local radio show here in Atl., and they were talking about Stafford and if it was wise to make him the starter this year. Fran pretty much said, "what's the first thing you hear about Stafford? He has a strong arm. That's about the least important part of the game for him in my opinion. You hear about guys with strong arms all the time like J. Russell and V. Young, but how have they faired?" He even went as far as giving Joe Cox a better evaluation of being more of a complete player and leader.
If you didn't know, Fran is a UGA grad. So there's the connection.
