Elway is pidgeon-toed. He lumbers in a fashion that earned him the nickname 'Duke' because he walks like John Wayne, not because of some overpowering personality or presence. No kidding.

Even so, he consistently ran a 4.6 or something close to that, and had an uncanny spidey-sense when the pocket was breaking down. He rolled out of more collapsed pockets to make remarkable plays more often than anyone I've ever seen.

I watched an interview with the legendary Sammy Baugh a few years back, anad Baugh said Elway reminded him of himself.
