They've neutered him badly though. Can't even choose his starting QB?? Looks like the Vinny/Zorn show a few years back.

when a ball carrier fumbles the ball out of bounds, its not luck if he switched hands so he was carrying the ball on the outside.

I believe that if you work hard enough you make your own luck but I need to know in your example ,why?

im not sure what you are exactly asking of me.

my best assermation is "why does it take a lot of hard work to get lucky in sports?"

- i guess i would point to my examples previously provided. fat boy running down the field futilely trailing the fast boys gets rewarded w a fumble recovery bc he continued to pursue the play and got rewarded for his hussle by being in the right spot at the right time . .

but i often say "it takes a lot of hard work to get lucky" bc he i heard patrick roy say it years ago. i personally havent had an original thought in a long time.


ohhh damn . i just thought of my very own original thought/cliche

"By always being in the right spot, your time will come" ..that kinda sucks ..

''by always being at the right spot at the right time, you will be the first to answer to door when opportunity knocks" ...

"the right spot is by the door, the right time is when opportunity knocks ..

"no one has ever answered a door while sitting on the couch . .

"if you stand by the door and wait, eventually you will be in the right spot at the right time when opportunity knocks ...

Looks like Packers RB Eddie Lacy threw on some pounds between OTAs and training camp....

Ok, why is it "not" luck for the fat guy to recover the fumble ?

The defensive lineman in OTM's example put himself in position to recover the fumble because he didn't give up and kept chasing the ballcarrier even though he knew he had no chance of catching him. I wouldn't call that luck; I would call it fortitude.

Not a good explanation from Lacy: "I guess Ive been splurging on too much fast food." Way to take care of yourself professional athlete.

My mind is still blown from the Eddie Lacy picture above.

And he wonders why he wasn't drafted in the first round..

Luckily for the Jets, Geno Smith isn't as bad as Lacy, but apparently he's not very fit either.

Amazing... these guys are called athletes for a reason. A big part of your job involves being in tip top shape. Just no excuses.
