Literal Translation: Quality or Power of Turning ~ of Revolution ~ of Rotation.
In Fanatical Yankee's Deeply Demented & Twisted View of the FootBall World: A Defender's Capacity ~ or lack thereof ~ to Flip Hips or Turn & Burn in order to Mirror a prospective Receiver as he bolts DownField.
In Man Coverage, Core Strength and Combat Craft play a large role in a CornerBack's Success or Failure.
In Man Coverage or in Zone, you can be sure that Fluidity, Acceleration, Ball Skills, and ~ above all but Verticity ~ Processing Speed impact the Fortune of any CornerBack.
Run Defense is very important, as well.
...At least in my Perception.
But, above all, Processing Speed ~ Rapidly Reading & Reacting as the Play unfolds and ~ particular to Corners above all other Players ~ Verticity...are what carve out the difference between Pro Bowler and Putz.
Frankly, I don't give a rat's ass what a CornerBacks's "40" Time is.
And I care even less about'is "Ball Skills". Interceptions are nice, but just Gravy. The idea is to play Defense.
But it was!! Hah!!
Processing Speed ~ Absolutely phenomenal. Whether in Run Defense or Pass Coverage, Milliner Rapidly Reads & Reacts at blistering speed, and seems constantly a step ahead of everyone else.
Verticity ~ Awesome. Milliner is blessed with sweet, serpentine Verticity, and can Turn & Burn with the best'f'm.
Run Defense ~ Magnficent. Milliner takes to Run Defense with the sweet, savage voracity of a MidFielder.
That's "LineBacker", to you Earthings.
This is a guy who clearly simply loves playing FootBall, and has a genuine Gift for it.
He is a brutal, violent Run Defender.
He is an athletically Gifted Pass Defender.
He is a wily Opportunist with great Ball Skills...but never forgets that'is first job is to prevent Completions.
He is a brilliant, fanatical Student of the Game.
He relentlessly pursues Perfection in every little detail of every Aspect of the Game.
And he trains hard, studies hard, and plays hard...at all times.
I don't generally attribute nearly as much Value to Corners as virtually everyone else does...But Milliner is special.
