    Which came first

    Marrdro's comment follows:
    Short, but interesting.......Thought I would make this into a poll.

    Shock suprise, I went with player, however, they quickly learned that someone needed to be in charge and made someone the coach after floundering about not winning anything.
    ;D

    Coaches can guide all they want but it takes players to execute.

    Begs the next question then, can a player execute if he isn't taught?

    :
    I think most players in the NFL are born with natural talent. Coaching might fine tune some of them but IMHO talent is not taught.

    You said execute, you didn't say talent.
    Haven't met a ball player yet who didn't need to be taught first the basics, and then the nuances at each and every level.

    Talent just makes that teaching/learning process easier.

    This article is not talking about different levels of the game. It is talking about the NFL level. At this point in their careers, I think execution is above coaching. Talent takes over.


    At the beginning of the season (pre-Favre), Coworker Bill and I debated what we would rather have: A new coach or a new quarterback. I argued for quarterback. It appears we may have gotten a 2-for-1 in Favre.
    ZING!

    Coaches do all the work in practice to prepare the team for the game. If the players are properly prepared, then during the game the coaches do not need to do all that much.

    Players came first

    All games were started on a playground somewhere.
    Thed players invented the games and made up the rules as they went along. when they got too old to play coaches were invented
