Scouting Report
Assets: Brings elite clutch ability at quarterback: has ice in his veins and keeps his team in the game to the final whistle. Has elite field vision in the pocket and zips throws all over the field. An outspoken leader with great intensity and competitiveness. Also amazingly durable.
Flaws: Occasionally lets his intensity boil over, and sometimes tries to do too much himself (leading to interceptions and sacks). Has never been much of a scrambler who will make plays with his feet. In the past he's come off as abrasive at times, riling up opponents.
Career Potential: Clutch veteran Pro Bowl quarterback.
