His greatest ability right now as his running in his athletic ability -- like Mike Vick and -- -- when they first came in week he has to learn to sit in the pocket make throws. He's not very Ackerley accurate consistently. Is the problem he drove the ball behind receivers. He kinda has -- hero syndrome with a lot of good quarterbacks are athletes have to keep plays alive running around in the back field. Sometimes you just gotta throw away throw the ball away live to fight another down I think it's gonna take time we've got to be patient. We have all the physical attributes and just kind of the natural -- And patients with in the pocket this is gonna takes more time. Made a couple of -- slant throws Jude and areas more on Sunday that hideous interception of the Kansas City just don't forget eliminate tied Darren McFadden scored two touchdowns in the game he ran right over -- of hollow on the two yard line score in the wildcat Rory at the throw option I think. And he ran it did -- against this Philadelphia defense which is 31 in the NFL should run these EMC go off on Sunday -- I don't. Think you look normal the majority of the year last week that game he finally look like himself again explosive. He was downhill running guys over playing fast his touchdown run second one we had the pass option. You saw that second year that you haven't really seen from this year knows that the bad hammy.

Blaine Johnson hadn't played that well he's a big time athlete he went top five in the draft but he struggled against power Jason -- it hunter is a physical. Every down defense and and he's not a natural speed rusher he's gonna try to be to win this rank he's gonna come off the edge he should be able to push the pocket back.
