As I stated in another thread he took control of the situation, bet on himself (and on the unfortunate possibility of an injury to someone) and his gamble paid off. The rest is determined by his performance.
Now why didn't we sign him before the season, and move Pouncey to guard......:facepalm:. It doesn't always have to be a home run signing, draft, etc. Little improvements are improvements regardless. The decision makers on this team (you know who you are) need to swallow their pride and do exactly what they tell the players to do every week, and that is put the team before yourself.
