Need to Improve
There is one big problem with James. It is a problem that is the worst possible
problem for a wide receiver to have. James can't catch the ball. Other then
that, he is pretty good.
There is either something wrong with James's eyes or, he just can't catch the
ball. He tries hard, but he just can't catch the ball. He is fast enough, but
he just can't catch the ball. I know he has a lot of big time stats, BUT he
just can't catch the ball. Every time I see this kid play he makes a great
catch and then it is followed by a ball he drops. What do you do with a kid who
has good size, good speed, runs good routes and just can't catch the ball?
First, you check his eyes out. If everything is all right, you don't draft him.
If he needs glasses, you tell him to keep his mouth shut until after you pick
him in the draft. Then you fit him with glasses and turn him into the sleeper
pick of the draft. Pow! You are now considered a genius player evaluator. Enjoy
your 15 minutes of fame…it doesn't last long. In fact, it lasts less than 15
minutes. By the way, make sure you check to see if the kid has memorized the
eye chart. This is a trick used all the time when kids don't want to wear
glasses or think they don't need them. (Duh) I know it's a curse -- and a gift.
