Rex Grossman, "quarterback" of the Chicago Bears recently said:
"He's come in and specifically worked on the things I didn't do so well

Let me count the number of things wrong with this quote. First, this is not something that the leader of a team would ever say. That may be the biggest issue we have here. Just like everyone else in society, nothing is his fault.

If you're not doing these things as an NFL quarterback, you should be working on them on your own.
