The strongest part of his game is defense and I think he should focus on that. Obviously it's nice to see him join the rush more often right now since he usually recovers nicely..
QFT.

Early in the year he was giving me headaches. Those turnovers made me rip my hair out. I'm glad he's been "finding his way" back since then... we will need him to continue playing like this down the stretch.
