Absolutely. Jimmy is a really good FOOTBALL player. Great athlete, good size for his position, good extinctive player...the proverbial 'nose for the ball'. He can tackle...can never be overstated how big this is. A lot of great athletes can run and jump and catch but can't bring down another great athlete on what is a really big field when that is the task at hand and said great athlete is trying to not be brought down. He may be lacking a fraction of a hundredth of a second when he is timed not playing football and simply running in a straight line but when the game is happening and you're geared up he can play.
