They asked me to do a bunch of stuff that I had never done: covering running backs and receivers and basically almost never rushing the passer, which is what I did in playing defensive line, they don’t have fun there. There’s nothing fun about it. There’s nothing happy about it. I didn’t enjoy any of my time there, you know what I’m saying? It made me for the first time in my life think about not playing football because I hated it that much.
What he's done in the short time being an NFL quarterback, he's been awesome, it's the best word I can think of. He's been a great passer, he's been a great runner, he's been a great leader. You don't go 17-1 as a starting quarterback without being awesome, and that's what he's been this year without a doubt.
A lot of people see his scoring prowess, obviously, he can shoot the 3, he can post up, his medium game is the best in the business. But when he came to the Warriors, I was shocked by two things. The biggest thing was just his feel and intelligence on the defensive end of the floor ... and then on top of that, he’s a phenomenal passer.
He's just had an incredible year. There's no doubt in my mind that he's going to be the( season's) MVP, what he's done in the short time being an NFL quarterback has been awesome, awesome. That's the best word I can think of. He's been a great passer, a great runner and a great leader.
He’s another big that we really needed, we were thin on big men and he came in and did his thing. We can feed him in the post and he’s a great passer. He can shoot the ball and get to the free throw line. He can do a lot of things and he’s still a force.
