"For a rookie to do those things in the NFL is not easy to do," Briggs said. "You never forget that no matter how well a player's played, he is a rookie. He's young, and he likes to put his nose down in it. When quarterbacks are like that -- like to run and get their nose in it -- defensive players need to be licking their chops in order to get their shots in." "Yes, he's a rookie but he's playing at a high level, and better than most quarterbacks who've been in the league for however long," Urlacher said. "He's playing well, throwing the ball over the place. [He's] making plays, keeps plays alive with his legs. There are some things he hasn't seen because he's a rookie."
