But the guy clearly is not able to react out there. People are criticizing him for laying off at the line, but he is not able to react to WR cuts. Right now if he plays up too close, he will give up long bombs, then imagine the criticism here.
I'm not making excuses for him, I frankly don't think he should be starting either. But he's physically not really able to play his position right now.
He is not thinking about INT's or jumping in the hot tub of supermodels with Deion, he is just trying to keep up with his WR right now (and generally failing.)
