    I have never thought that Merriweather's problems were about willingness and talent. His problems are more geared to his lack of coachability and being geometrically challenged. As BB has said on many occasions, that playing for him is NOT an easy chore. So I thought that a change of coaches might be what he was missing. However, evidently the Bears under a more lenient Lovey Smith, couldn't crack the code, and Brandon went from starter, to benchwarmer, to out the door in very fast order. Maybe the 3rd time is the charm. I wish him luck.

    the funny thing is, when he went to the bears I heard some speculation that this was just what he needed, and that's the type of system he might actually be a good fit for -- now I'm reading that he supposedly wasn't a good fit in that system, and this washington thing should really play to his strengths.
    good luck.

    Hanyesworth said the same thing when he went to the Redskins... Patriots... Buccaneers... not sure where he'll be a good fit next

    I don't wish him well. Wasted a high pick, a few years and left our secondary in shambles. And it was entirely his fault. All he had to do was what the coach said and work with his team mates and he intentionally did the opposite.

    What's the difference between coachability and willingness?

    Yes. Year's 2 and 3 he seemed to the rock of our secondary in the making.

    I guess that Pro Bowl berth went to his head, and it was all downhill from there.

    » Brandon Meriweather Benched Because He Can’t Stop “Trying a Lot of Things” Barstool Sports: Boston

    You can celebrate players that have talent and waste it, I don't. I was a critic of BJGE because i didn't think he had the talent to be a starter in the league. He proved me wrong. He was an UDFA. No one gave him anything. He earned every start with discipline, team play and consistency. I hope he goes to the Hall of Fame, who knows.

    These me first players who can't be bothered to study and play as coached, I'll drive them to the airport. Their loss makes the team better. a lot better.

    When a safety goes to two Pro Bowls despite being fundamentally unsound -- yeah, you can be pretty sure he made a lot of good football plays along the way.

    I don't think BB's quote told us much we didn't know before he made it.

    What I meant by that is his willingness to hit and be physical. That was never a problem. But his unwillingness to take the hard coaching and his inability to take good angles on the ball were the reasons he got cut.
