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.
That pretty much sums up what I saw. Or, to summarize what I've seen from him in games, as soon as the ball is snapped, Russell seems to panic and everything goes out the window.

I never thought Marinovich looked that special. But just so you dont believe MY opinion. Here is a quote where John Elway commented on the footwork that took 10 years to perfect.

Last summer Marinovich went to a football camp at Stanford, and John Elway worked out with him. He praised Marinovich's throwing mechanics but encouraged him to take deeper drops by using longer steps.

Ya know. I just posted a couple interesting videos from NFL Network about QB footwork comparisons and what they can result in.

No real need to be a "nattering nabob of negativism" about it, as you so refer to others as.
