I believe my length and instincts for the game. And having played quarterback for most of my life always helps.

When you are breaking down film, what do you look for?

Tendencies mainly. What does the WR tend to do to get separation? What does the off coordinator tend to do on 3rd and long? Anything that will get my hands on the ball I’ll find it in the film room.

Lebron on 2k17 is unstoppable!
