I Don't Think The Sex Cannon Even Knew What A 3-Step Drop Was

As reader hacocacyb said when he sent me this picture he made, "a photo speaks a bazillion words". I don't know much about fundamentals, but I doubt Grossman's drop looked like this.

Kyle Orton Textbook Three Step Drop

I do like Orton more and more to manage this offense, though I don't know if his neckbeard will be able to overcome all the glaring question marks.

Dyme has no idea what this photo means.

Ummm, in the time lapse photo, I am counting at least 3 instances where the left foot is planted... This is more likely a 5 or 7 step drop. But anyways, I doubt Rexy comes even close to setting his feet as well as Orton. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l_zs8DOMGos

looks like more of a hop, skip, and a jump to me.

I'm not versed in the fundamentals of a Quarterback's drop. Sorry guys. You all showed me.

One thing I notice that is kind of scary is that Orton's eyes did not leave the left side of the field. He was staring down his primary reciever... that, or he was watching Hester run the wrong route.

I count about 5 steps.

It takes a bazillion words to count his steps.
