If players work hard and keep trying to improve and get the right system, their ability shine. Luther has shown he has a place in this league and a good work ethic, he just needs the right system to fit him.
your statement was that imagine if t-mac was gone, how well luther will do... t-mac is always gone and luther had his chances in houston... remember there are practices, drills, workouts, etc.. behind the scenes.. luther had his chances in houston.
im not arguing that he will not succeed and that he cannot develop as a player. i am SIMPLY stating as i have said over and over, he had his chances... if he goes and develop into a solid player and have a solid career, that would be great, maybe he will find a system that will fit him right but that does not excuse his current major flaws...
