The coach ends on saying that most people claim they'll do whatever it takes, but points to what Peyton did as the real 'whatever it takes' as if what he did is above other people on merit of his hard work.

What really puts this above others is money. Not everyone can hire freaking NFL players to come play a fake game with them so that they can get their groove back. Not everyone can hire a college coach to be their personal assistant.

Peyton was propped up by a full staff financially motivated for him to succeed. 99.9% of people don't have that and have to do things on their own. Peyton's story isn't more special than theirs.

Work hard like Peyton and maybe you can afford that stuff. Stop making excuses for your own inadequacies.

This is a completely irrelevant and empty point.

    • I am as big of a Cam fan as there is, but no he's not perfect. BUT, I will say, in his defense, a good deal of his shortcomings are due in part to offensive scheme and design.  You brought up Brady, whose offense is designed around getting the ball out quick and with timing and letting the receivers make plays.  The biggest complaint on this board since Chud left has been the lack of quick hitting, easy completions created by short, quick routes.  And while I see a lot of articles now about how Cam lacks accuracy on short and intermediate routes, and has ranked as the league worst, at least in 2016, he didn't struggle with such issues under Chud.  Our screens were a lot crisper for one and the routes were more varied and creative.  Furthermore, the last two or three seasons' decline in short and intermediate accuracy coincides with having a receiving corps among the leagues worst in getting separation.  Now, we draft two guys that are quick, fast and can get open in a hurry and overhauled the receiving corps with Shepard and Johnson as well.  I think people are going to see the accuracy problem was more due to scheme and personnel than it was Cam.  If healthy, he's going to have a ridiculous year.
