3. Player X can’t be stopped on the practice field.
We’ve all heard this one before. Player X is so good out there and he can’t be stopped! He’s having a great training camp! So on and so forth.
Well, beware of the actual circumstances surrounding the player’s great performance. Does he have Aaron Rodgers throwing him the ball? Is he wearing shorts and a helmet? Is he going up against Donatello Brown on the fourth team?
The answers to these questions usually give us our answer about why this player can’t be stopped and that’s because of the circumstances. Don’t get me wrong. It’s encouraging to hear certain players are having good Summers, but in the long run, it means absolutely nothing if they don’t do it on the actual field.
