Deceptive game speed. High football IQ. Reads the QB as good as Watt.

I want him held back in case we really REALLY need him down the stretch.
This is insane! Half the year is over and you describe him as a difference maker yet you want to sit him "IN CASE WE NEED HIM LATER"? You are starting to think too much like the old Kubiak. He needs to be getting 15 to 25 plays a game to develop and Phillips needs to start designing packages to take advantage of his special abilities NOW! This guy has flashed D Ware ability. You don't sit those type players. You fine ways to get them on the field and keep them there.
