- Out of the pistol, two eyes wide open, [? Dante ?] Harris!
LIZ LOZA: Unflappable, because he plays with a toughness--
ERIC EDHOLM: No doubt.
LIZ LOZA: --and a poise and a confidence that is going to absorb hits, that is going to take risks with his body, that is very modern NFL.
ERIC EDHOLM: Oh, absolutely. Anyone who calls him soft or injury-prone, I just don't think-- look.
LIZ LOZA: They've watched any of it?
ERIC EDHOLM: Yeah. I mean, right. I mean, there are plenty of other players that could have applied to by that logic, and it makes no sense. I mean, he's a tough, tough kid. He's quiet. He's reserved. You met with him. You saw him. He's not one of these brash, showy guys. Those people can be tough, too, as he was.
Now, the fact that he didn't ever finish a season healthy, that he finished a complete season, rather-- it does lend some concern there. And this is the absolute worst off-season to have-- I mean if there's ever a good time to have it, I don't know. But the dislocated hip, the hip fracture-- for the doctors not to be able to get their regular battery of workups, tests, and more tests, and follow-up visits-- look, this is the absolute worst time to have it.
So everything from October 17 of last year till now has been a really tough break for him. But in that way, he's maybe the anti-Burrow. He's going to have plenty of motivation to prove people wrong.
So I mean, health is my one word. I couldn't go anywhere else, just because as you said, who knows where he'll be in five years? Who knows where he'll be in two years? That's just the biggest question, without a doubt.
