    What is more impressive is that what he is doing on the field isn't smoke and mirrors. Phil is doing it with a marginal at best QB and an offensive line that wasn't that good before it was gutted by injuries.

    He is tough and versatile and is elusive enough that he take fewer really hard hits than would be expected.

    Based on what we have seen so far Phil is going to be tormenting NFL defenses for a number of years.

    Congrats to Phillip on a monumental accomplishment!!! Absolute hero story from a young man with amazing fortitude and character. Family should be so proud! Very proud to be a Buff/Bronco fan!

    Hope he gets another financial bonus for this?

    Can he get a raise? What does he get for making the pro bowl?

    Dude is gonna make $500K living at home with momma while being a celebrity. I’d say it’s been a decent year for Phil. Well deserved!

    Getting to watch Phil at CU was a real treat, now the Broncos will have to pony up the $$$ he deserves!

    Rudy is the worst movie ever made and I resent that any association has appeared in PL's amazing thread!

    Lying clown dbag claimed today that he wanted Lindsay drafted in the 3rd round instead of Freeman. Liar.

    Very cool. I believe a Bergner parent was on AB at one point too. Edit: @bombers519

    Phillip Lindsay will have no difficulty finding a police department to work for once his NFL career comes to an end. He may not want to take the pay cut, though.

    One underrated statistic in Lindsay's rookie line this late in the season is that he has a lot of touches (rushing, receiving, punt returns, kickoff returns) with zero fumbles. He never fumbles.

    Be careful. Absolutes put you in danger of B_Walk territory.

    The guy had one fumble in his entire career at Colorado (in 2015), with all those touches. Zero so far in the NFL.
