    Never would have guessed either of these statements: Lindsay is getting it done

    "at Southern California last weekend, Lindsay had six catches for 105 yards — the most yards receiving for a Colorado tailback in nearly 15 years".

    "He's averaging 4.9 yards per carry this season and has scored six times".

    Always liked Lindsay and his passion and grit. He's a big spark to The Rise. This is meant as a compliment -- he plays and leads much bigger than his size.

    Does Lindsay get NFL attention with a good 2017 season? Personally I think he has what it takes. The dude is versatile

    He'll get a look regardless, but I think he has a chance to be a late round pick if he has a great year.

    That would be a shame as he'd need to cut that hair.

    I find it hard to believe that he also does not want to become an NFL player if the opportunity was there

    To be honest, I don't think he's an NFL caliber RB. He's a great college back, a true buff, and I will always remember him and the role he played in turning things around though. I love his heart, drive, and passion. If anyone can defy the odds, it's Phil. I hope he proves me wrong.

    Lindsay would be absolutely perfect in a ST role in the NFL.

    If I were a friend of PL's, I would grab his phone and change his ringtone to Gus Johnson's call of that TD.

    Well, it's been a pleasure to watch him play. NFL? Idk? The way he plays though, someone might take a chance on him and I hope so. Senior year is gonna be a big one.

    My sentiments exactly. He may not have NFL speed for his size. I hope I am wrong, as well.

    I feel this will only fuel Lindsay after reading. Dude is going to be a beast this season. He is easily motivated.

    And what I think is Lindsay's greatest contribution to the team is his ability to inspire his teammates. He settles for nothing less than perfect and I guarantee that the UW and OSU games to finish off last year still piss him off.

    You could be right but I don't think Lindsay needs anybody or anything to motivate him, dude is a baller.
