    Talent vs Potential

    From Dictionary.com
    Talent-a special natural ability or aptitude
    Potential-a latent excellence or ability that may or may not be developed.

    Those are the definitions for talent and potential.

    Were i think we have talent
    RB-Jackson needs no words
    FB- Karney has opened holes for jackson this year
    Saftey- Butler and Atogwe are a good duo in the secondary
    O-line- I might take some fire for this but i think when we have all of our starters on the line we have a really good o-line
    ILB- Jlau has been a monster his rookie season, he will be regarded as one of the best if he maintains this pace.

    Were i think we have potential
    Wr- Robinson, Avery, Amendola, Martin, Gibson all have alot of potential that need to be tapped.
    Cb- Our cb's have the physical attributes and have shown "flashes" but we need consistency

    Places were i think we need a total restructuring
    QB- No one is denying that we need a new franchise qb at this point, the question is who do we go out and get.
    TE- We need a solid pass catcher, someone that our new qb can have confidence in at all times
    OLB- We need new people here, Vobora and the Grant, Lenon combo havent been doing us favors.


    Please share your list

    Re: Talent vs Potential

    I agree with you nearly 100%, however you did forget d line, so i'll throw in my opinion there

    Chris Long- Potential. He is starting to graduate over to the talent side of the debate, but still needs to prove it to some.

    Little - Talent. Old, but definitely has shown he can play in this league.

    Clif Ryan- Potential, I believe this kid will be a force if we add someone worth his salt next to him.

    Other DT spot needs to be addressed. Starting to lean towards Suh over a QB in the 1st round after watching a backup rb tear us up.



    The only thing I would change on your list is to add bartell to the talent side.

    Ya i agree. I didnt put them in their because i honestly dont no were to put them. As individuals you can kinda evaluate how everything is, but as a group that area has radical changes in play every week. From sub 70 yard game from AP to a 100+ yard day from justin forsett, hard to really get a key on what we have as a whole there.
