Generally speaking, I agree with Morph's comment. But the exception that proves the rule is Oakland Raiders, Steve Sweeney. He was a phenom in college and hit the big money when he was drafted to the championship team. But had the misfortune to study with JW's his first year as pro. They convinced him to get on the Theresa Graves bandwagon and quit. He "took the council" and was in my in-laws' congregation. Guess what year? Wait for it...1974.
Wonder how he feels now about his life course. Prince, Larry, George et all? Hope he saved for retirement. LOL
