Talent can't be increased, decreased, or changed in any way.
It is what it is.
Nails, You are confusing "physical attributes" with talent.
You mean to tell me a "good" coach can't take a player with tremendous talent and then maximize that talent to the fullest extent?
So coaches can't improve a players technique, improve his instincts through situational study, or simply define his role to maximize effectiveness?
Maybe NFL teams don't need head coaches.[/b][/quote]
I'm not confusing anything.
Just reread what you just wrote and maybe it will dawn on you.
Talent is an innate quantitative aptitude determined at birth. It can't be altered. It can only be realized.
To realize it takes hard work and yes - coaching.
[b] But you don't coach talent. You coach the human being that possesses the talent. [/b]
If you don't get it, you don't get it.
