INDIANAPOLIS — "He’s brought a team that didn’t win [many] games last year, basically without a quarterback, brought in a quarterback, a young quarterback, and they’re right in the playoff hunt. We played against [Peyton] Manning when I was at Buffalo his first year and I think they only won two games," Phillips said.
"This guy has made the team win a lot of games. Six times he’s brought them from behind at the end of the game. I can’t say enough about how good of a quarterback he is and how good of a future he has. That’s what is impressive is a guy who can come in the league as a rookie and say, ‘I’m going to drop back and throw it and beat you guys,’ and that’s what he’s done.”
