He'd have to show it on the field on a consistent basis for me to make such an extraordinary statement. Tools and potential is one thing. Consistently performing on the field when it counts is a totally different equation. I've seen plenty of "five o'clock" performers over the years.
Talent is God Given: be humble.
Fame is man given: be thankful.
Conceit is self given: be careful.
