Yeah, we can say Rivers has an awkward delivery, Ken Stabler or Dan Pastorini threw a bit 3/4, Neil O Donnell patted the ball before every throw..........but they all had good footwork.

Good footwork is the basis for all good QB play, from stepping the correct way to handoff, the proper foot to reverse pivot for a pitch or a solid 3,5, or 7 step drop. Bad feet give more chance for bad results and that is what Green really hilighed in the case of Russell.
