I just watched the Mic’d up video of Deandre Hopkins and one thing stood out to me like crazy. It looks like he is jogging through his routes yet he gets himself open. Is that a function of a good play call or just good route running skills?
Also it cracked me up that after a last second thriller win he turned and jogged it into the tunnel like the five o’clock whistle had sounded. ??. Just business, I love it.
