Yes absolutely. It comes from practice and experience and the type of vision you're talking about is absolutely a learned skill. All the other things that factor into it such as fast twitch  muscle (how quickly you react to what you see) is a little different.

This isn't to say that some people don't pick it up much quicker than others, and their brains don't process things differently. But it's the same thing as an outfielder reacting to a ball right off the bat or a basketball player (Bill Russell) reacting to where a rebound is going to go when it's still leaving the shooters hand, nobody was born with that. Repetition, practice, and coaching help that.

Again none of this is to say that anyone with the right amount of practice can react to things like Barry Sanders, but there are a lot of other factors as to why that is.

Had to happen after that video came out. All the stories of how it happened were a mile from true. 

That said, I think he'll get another chance but not this year. As to whether he deserves it Idk.

He isn't counting the Raiders, because well, they're the Raiders.

Or the Bills, because after they move to Canada all bets are off.

Can't give JT the hook just yet, they started him because they thought he was the better qb, I doubt that's changed.

Just stop it, these threads are getting more and more ridiculous. Yes they'll be better than 6-7, no it is not a legitimate question. And I'd put any amount of money on that.

You people are nuts.

3 weeks ago everyone was talking about how awesome our coaching staff was, Urban Meyer was God, Ed Warriner was better than Ditka, and Tom Herman made Vince Lombardi look like a shabby attempt at coaching. 

Now we need to fire them all for their sins. It's just ridiculous. Teams lose games, particularly teams with new qb's who weren't expected to start till very recently, and an entire new o-line. Step back from the ledge, grab a beer maybe and chill.

Ok yeah yeah, but who do you think we should fire?

Glad you had a good time, and I get to read something positive this AM.

You realize they lost 9 games last year right? You also realize that they've only beaten UTM and Ohio right? And based off of this you say they can the B1G next year?

I've never had a problem with the crap you've thrown out there, the Timmons love, or the Kentucky love, but this is just stupid. If you actually believe that then there's something a bit wrong with you.

They haven't won an SEC game in about 30 years. Sober up man.

And he's made some darn fine throws, but those receivers have been really open all night.

I'm hoping you're wearing one of the E+R=O bands, or they shorted you.

Comment 06 Sep 2014

Trolling UK fans if I had to hazard a guess.

Comment 06 Sep 2014

If I was on there I'd pick scum to lose every week, and OSU to never lose a game, so I can't say much here.

Comment 06 Sep 2014

So you're saying if they ever play Gettysburg we're screwed?

Comment 04 Sep 2014

Boston and Carter are really the only acceptable answers. Plenty of guys deserve honorable mention like Glenn and Galloway, but this is a 2 horse race.

I'll take Boston because I saw him live and will never forget how he was just clearly better than everyone else.
