    I disagree, harry. These guys are football players, not rocket surgeons. Odds are when a college football player sits across from a room full of professional football executives and coaches, the "kid" will not outsmart the "old men".

    They get paid to determine character every bit as much as talent.

You get his answer and then you get some of our linemen out there and see how he does.
    Or he had the flu, or a pulled muscle, or a really bad headache that day. Who knows. But I get your point. The bottom line is, there isn't really any good way to explain away inconsistent effort on the field if it happens with any regularity. Your effort on the field speaks for itself.
