Yeah. That is what I remember too. Only I thought it was because he finally gained control of his cutter and it was moving more than ever before.
Kinda makes you wonder... Think he was scuffing? hmm... I doubt it...
Either way, it is possible
that he could regain his form, but highly unlikely given the other years of crappiness. He is undrafted and ww material in almost all leagues.
