The Hall of Fame, though, isn’t always great about rewarding consistent players who are good in a number of areas but seemingly not elite at any. Just ask Trammell, Dwight Evans or Bobby Grich.
Baseball researcher and Cooperstown enthusiast Adam Darowski made note of this in an email and also offered a theory for Trammell and Whitaker’s differing popularity.
It probably comes down to shortstop being a bit more glamorous and Trammell having a couple seasons that put him in the MVP mix,” Darowski wrote. Whitaker was also remarkably consistent. If he had a few 8 WAR years and fewer 3 WAR years, he’d be in.”
Sports Illustrated writer Jay Jaffe isn’t optimistic about Whitaker’s chances. In his upcoming Cooperstown Casebook, which will be out in June, Jaffe writes, Like Grich, Whitaker faces an uphill battle, because as Cheap Barcelona Jerseys longtime Cheap Authentic NBA Jerseys Tigers beat writer Tom Gage reminded his supporters in 2015, ‘reconsiderations don’t start at the bottom.’”
You go into that level, and you’re calling out every single receiver, running back, offensive line protection. You’re calling it all out in a play, Fedora said. If you’ve ever heard an NFL play, it might be 7 to 10 words long. Getting that from the sideline or the helmet to his teammates will be the biggest learning curve, I think, for him.
With so much pressure on coaches and GMs to hit on the right guy right away, the patience to develop a QB in the NFL is a dying art. (Even when a QB class like this one doesn’t offer that guy.) Beyond a team helping Trubisky grow, waiting on him as a starter also would let it further get to know what kind of leader and winner he can be in time.
