That's the thing. He always kills it in training camp. But as the season begins, real competition comes at him, and the grind wears on him, he fades. I've wondered if he just can't hold up to the grind of a full season (physically and perhaps mentally). He is also a quiet, borderline shy person. I've wondered if NFL defenders coming at him physically and verbally just takes that edge off him due to him not really being confrontational. He showed he can run with the big dogs in college, but maybe the pros are a little too fierce. Don't know. If he read this, he would tell me I know nothing and point out his big 130 yd game. And I would respond, "I hope you're right. Because this team really needs the best version of DVP every game." Here's to hoping his progression is real and his partnership with BFlo will bring the best out. In the meantime, I have no expectations for him though.We were all hopeful that he would be a difference maker coming out of college, but now that hope has all but diminished. The guy has talent, but,IMHO, not the grit to play in the league.
I dont know man... Seems to me like its really easy these days to just blame it all on Gase... Its not like when Parker was actually playing he was setting **** on fire. There are alot of mediocre and bad performers in the Dolphins org that are looking for an excuse IMO... Grier might very well be one of them... Time will tell...I really do wonder how badly Gase mismanaged this team. Some of the stuff I hear seems borderline unbelievable...but after you hear enough accounts like this one, things stop being called "coincidence" and start being called "evidence."
