I'd love to win games today because of Matt & Arian & Andre & the defense, not just on whichever one happens to be hot that day. They should all be "hot" at the same time as often as possible. That's when we are at our best.
Now we got a defense & a run game, he doesn't have to be that guy. I get it. But we're a better team when he is that guy.
I like him better this way. You don't need to be a gunslinger when you have a good defense. Just play solid percentage football and win.
