Nice article about ex-player Trent Dilfer

Recommended Posts

My dad was a natural born coach as well.  People like this touch a lot of lives for the better, and not only through sports.  It's been 4 years since he passed and I still see people randomly posting about dad and the difference he made in their lives.

 

I'm glad Trent listened to the people around him who told him to embrace his gift.

 

It sounds like he will make a difference for a lot of people.

 

Thanks for sharing this

As someone who has coached a lot, the last 6 years was a team that I stayed with from 3rd grade thru 8th grade.  And teaching football is really secondary, especially at the 3rd/4th grade level.  In the area I coached half the kids had no significant male figure in their life.  So, in additional to teaching how to block, how to tackle, how to hold the ball, you also have to teach, how to push themselves beyond where they think they can go, how to plan and execute, how to prepare and how to be responsible, how to be a good sport, how to be grow into a man.  Over the years I had to help a child who was being abused, help a kid get settled after his mom got arrested and sent to prison for a couple of years, helped a kid with dyslexia learn to read better, helped a family who's kid (the player) having a crisis of faith, steered a kid away from drugs... and yeah, I taught them a little bit of football as well.

 

If Dilfer really felt a calling to this, then great for him, coaching kids has to extend beyond the football field.

    • Bingo, Yoda nailed it. This is why so many fans are frustrated. Jacoby will do his best, but there is a significant drop-off there. Abso-Bloody Lootly Yoda.  You pinpointed why this presser is so hard to accept as fans IA17. Love of the game vs the pound of flesh that it ultimately takes in the end.  Yes, Luck truly sounds drained emotionally. Really difficult to watch. Mind & body not in sync anymore. Feel for ya brother.  Love me some Rivers man, but he's only got about 2-3 elite yrs left IMO. Drew's arm is beginning to weaken late in season now that's why the Saints rely on their RBs more now than ever before. Dak doesn't have the arm to win inside the pocket & I refuse to accept anything from the Cowboys franchise ever.  What size are we talkin' bout here though? Tiny or gigantic CSPR?   Johnny you wanna take this one? Thanks.      One can never go wrong with the "Man In Black" you know...
    • As far as Kelly, you can’t deny the way he just takes the offense down the field. I don’t think his size is an issue. I think character and leadership are and he would have to really prove himself in the locker room to ever be seriously considered by Reich and Ballard. He’s done well enough so far but JB has earned his leadership on the team.
    • QB + LT should be a priority right now. QB for obvious reason. LT because Castonzo isn't getting younger and we experienced how important it is to protect your franchise signal caller. 
    • THe Colts FO has been so high on Jacoby, plus Ballard has said we have a really good team...we have literally painted ourselves in a corner now.  They may back him to the point as to not attempt to acquire another high pick at QB.
    • Chad Kelly has elite arm talent.  Like Mahomes-level arm talent.   Think he runs a 4.6 40 as well.  The kid has some elite attributes, he's just raw and a little undersized compared to Brissett.
