  • Talent

    Here's the question. How long does a player have to perform before he wastes his talent? Can talent be wasted or do players have it for life and it takes the proper coaching to bring it out? Also do some guys just have "it" and can perform regardless of influences?

    When people talk about wasted talent it usually refers to a player (usually a decent one) who plays on a team that is consistantly bad year in and year out.

              I dont think of a waste of talent as someone who is on a bad team year in and out. I think of a waste of talent as someone who has the talent, just doesnt work hard enough, or is just stupid enough not to do anything with it.
              Example:
              Charles Rogers
              Ricky Williams
              David Terrell (WR)

              Underachiever is the best word that comes to my mind when I think of a waste of talent. Ranting on, there is a kid, sophmore on our football team, he has all the talent in the world, could play DE or OLB and FB. Big guy, around 220, runs a good 40 time, great player, but doesnt work....at all. Lazy as can be, that kid wastes all the talent he has by not working at all.

                  Exactly how I view the term "waste of talent".

                    Ok what about guys like Trent Green or Rich Gannon? They accelerated later in their careers, did it take a great coach to bring that out? Just Luck?

                      Priest Holmes as well I think it is right place right time plus some luck.

                          But he dominated for so many years....

                          When these people are suggesting wastes of talent they are centering around draft busts.

                            If you mean a bust, I ususally wait three years. But you can tell when a guy is wasting his talent after one year in a case like Randy Moss.

                              The Leafster had all the talent in the world. Too bad he actually had his brain surgically replaced with a horse's ass. Case closed.
