When evaluating MidFielders, these are the Attributes to which I pay most particular attention:
Processing Speed ~ How Rapidly do they Read & React to the developing Play?
Combat ~ How effective are they with their Hands ~ their Punch & Placement?
Fluidity ~ How Serpentine are they with their moves, as they try to get free and make a Play?
Lateral Agility ~ How Adept are they at skittering right and left to respond as the Play develops?
Verticity ~ That's "Capacity to Turn & Burn in Pass Defense", to you Earthlings!!
Intangibles ~ Motor & Diagnostic Capacity & Processing Speed
Pass Defense ~ Decent Verticity but dubious Processing Speed ~ Slow to React.
Pass Rush ~ Not really.
Intangibles ~ Heh. But, seriously: Impressive Diagnostic Capacity but subpar Processing Speed.
But it's as a FootBall Player that I believe the real Fantasy lies.
He simply isn't that good.
His Run Defense & Pass Defense are both mediocre & flawed, and there's no Pass Rush to speak of. Furthermore, the lies he told in exacerbating the Scandal ~ and the humiliation of the Scandal, itself ~ are certainly going to undermine his Credibility in the Locker Room and on the Field...where he's tasked to be a Leader.
