TJ did show us something, helping the team to come from behind to win a game that won the division, and then winning a playoff game. Do you remember 3rd & 18 and TJ running for almost 19 yards for a first down? That kept the game winning drive alive, and then he nails Walter for the game winning TD. Dude is a gamer. Rough around the edges, but those can be polished. He's got smarts, he's a leader, and he doesn't crack under pressure.
This for a 5th round 3rd string QB without an off-season or any reps that was thrown into the fire.
I'm not going to hold Ed Reed in Baltimore during a playoff game against him like so many folks do.
