He is also a very good running quarterback, is tough to take down when running the ball, and is very athletic. On the other side, he put up too many interceptions, he does not have great speed, despite being a good running quarterback, heÊunder throwsÊsome passes, doesÊnotÊget the ball out in time at times, takes some unnecessary sacks, over throws his receivers at times, and tends to throw into double coverage at times.
