From the little bit I've read, it appears the comments he made about taking plays off is what got him kicked off other teams boards. However, none of the scouting reports I've seen mentioned taking plays off, or a lack of motor.
Hopefully this is a case of people putting too much stock in the words people use, & not enough in production.
As far as the other observations... tight hips & concerns in space, if this guy is who he looks like, he'll be asked to cover someone 3 to 6 times a season...
