Default Re: QB Footwork comparison of Jamarcus Russell and Drew Brees

Yeah, Al Davis is a stopwatch guy, but back in the day he knew his stuff before he went senile.

Fran Tarkenton knows noodle arm, but he knows that you can get more power with your legs to throw the ball.

I once attended a coaching clinic where the QB coach really emphasized footwork, transfer of weight and generating power from the legs, hip flexors, torso rotation and finally the arm snap. It kind of reminded me of a Shot putter with a 5-step drop.
