Re: Josh Rosen Trade Rumors: Redskins Have 'Openly' Discussed QB If Made Available

They want to be scoring, celebrating, showing off, fame with out putting in the hard work. How did Rosen get to be a second year NFL pro and not have good footwork?
Below is not the video I was looking for, but it talks more about Bill Walshs always stressing footwork to his QBs and what I imeadiately see as troubling in Rosen. He has work to do to break his bad habits.
I will admit at the age of 16 I was guilty of that. I had already been boxing for a couple years mostly as a sparring partner for an older friend. More like a punching bag for an older friend, ha,ha. Anyway a couple of friends and I decided to try karate. It was a class of all beginners. I think the first 3 lessons were all on the proper fighting stance and foot positioning for balance.
Of course I had joined up to learn how to break boards and bricks, unhappy with the progress of the teaching I quit. It really wasn't for me anyway, required too much flexibility and finesse.
