And then all of a sudden he does something and you get scratched.» head and think why,» Theismann said. «And then he goes and sits on the sidelines, and he has this look on his face, and it seems like in his head he’s doing the same thing I’m doing, saying, ‘Why did he do that?’ Why do that?’ What kind of decision?

«I still think he’s an untapped asset for the Buffalo Bills. I’d love to see him slide a little more. I don’t know if that’s in his nature,» Theismann said. «I’d love to see him throw the ball. He tries to make every play, and that’s a double-edged sword. If you try to make every play, good things won’t happen. If you make a great play, everyone says ‘woo,’ and you say, ‘ Okay, I got it.’ And then all of a sudden you make a couple of mistakes and now you’re kind of back and forth.”
