As much as I like Jake T's defensive technique, his hitups are just not rep standard. Theyre not even close. I mean if he's the best defender in the world, fine, you make allowances for the Dallas Johnson-esque, defence-orientated player. But his defence isnt the best in the world and he carries the ball about as strongly as Darius Boyd. There's just no post-contact drive. And i think his ball distributing is both excessive and actually has a negative net effect on the attack because it prevents the halves from ever really linking together.
