    The one missing piece to all this is can the player's "book" smarts translate to "field" smarts. Chad obviously (painfully) couldn't.

    I recall reading that BB had him go to the board to draw it all up and CJ could. I think CJ had a slight problem with maturity.:rolleyes:

    Read it a few weeks ago. It was a great book, highly reccomend it to anyone that wants to expand their knowledge of football and the NFL in general.

    CJ's problem wasn't football intelligence.
