I saw this sentence in the book ,dont know what does it mean
"I am just a rabbit at football"
Though certainly not a common phrase, to be a 'rabbit' at something most likely means to be uninformed, unenlightened, and not terribly proficient, since it seems similar to the more common term 'dumb bunny.' Since the word 'rabbit' is modified by 'just,' used in this instance to mean 'merely,' this seems to support a pejorative connotation for rabbit.
Could mean quick, as in the expression "quick as a rabbit".
