For any player to leave a TD on the field for the good of the team is impressive, but a rookie? Wow. This guy is turning into one of my favorites already.
That guy has patrick willis like maturity. He knows that we have been struggling with injuries all season and he has picked the team over personal accomplishments. I hope he is a niner for a while.
