He's good enough to make it in the pass game as just a third down threat alone, but when you can do both of those, it gives you a lot of freedom as a coach," Shanahan said. "Based off of what downs you put him in and that when you do put him in, the defense doesn't know exactly what type of plays you're trying to run because he can do it all."
"Now the rush isn't quite the same," Shanahan said. "He can start from the beginning and start from the first page and not the 50th page. He can get a better foundation. When you have a better foundation of where you're coming from and learning, it gives you a chance to play at a higher level."
