Lofa was short but bulky. Kiko is more streamlined and, well, I'd almost call him "shrimpy" if that was actually a real word. He's not extremely fast either. Fast enough.
But holy damn, the guy just makes plays. He's almost like the Ichiro! of NFL LBs. You are amazed by what he's doing in a body like that, but he makes plays so often and so consistently that it's impossible to think he's a fluke in any way. His play isn't dominating, and yet it is. Very interesting player. He is so legit. He could finish with 10 picks, 5 sacks, and 150 tackles, and if you watched him every week, you'd believe the numbers.
I'm with this. Dude's amazing, pure and simple. And, when you have the other
Williams sisters, and that DC, it's okay to be undersized. Lofa would've played longer if Tubbs hadn't flamed out, type thing.
Eventually the Bills will pay for that speed though. The Browns began making hay with delayed and/or stretch runs to use Kiko's instinct and speed against him.
I love both those teams last night. But, I still hate Jseahawks.
