Go half speed , lull defender to sleep and turn on the burners.
His unwillingness to block also was evident , so I don't think he was ever studying the playbook hard on running plays.
Despite him being a Viking , he is someone who I will always stand up for and for being one of the most talented players I've ever seen touch a football. However I don't think his success in New England is because he came in there and studied hard and learned the system.
If he were a student of the game AT ALL his career could of been longer because he would of had more of the nuances and technique down to extend his final few years , instead of losing his world class speed and jumping ability and falling off a cliff.
