Look, I'm making it short and sweet for you. We're not talking about the intangibles that go into it, we're not talking about the reads on time, we're not talking about the footwork, the arm strength, the hands, all those things.
The bottom line is that guy doesn't have to the prettiest, but does he give you an opportunity to win football games and does he allow his players around him to raise their game up and go do that.
He's not discounting the importance of footwork, etc., at all, IMO. He's simply "making it short and sweet" in his response.
There are obviously a hell of a lot of specific details that allow a QB to win games and elevate the play of others.
