On "You can't teach ......"




Today during the draft, Bill Polian was talking about Logan Thomas and said "I believe you can't teach accuracy." I have been hearing this A LOT about a million different things.

'You can't teach leadership"

"You can't teach instincts"

"You can't teach feeling the rush"

"You can't teach speed"

"You can't teach _______"

In a previous post, in the comments, a poster was writing about Stevie pouting a lot. In the otherwise great post, he mentioned "He has a "why me" mentality once a play goes bad, rather than doing something about it, you can't teach that".

Really? It is simply a bad habit. It can be taught, the same way someone is taught to stop biting their nails. With awareness, knowledge, mindfulness, and practice.

Draft picks improve their 40 times by .1-.3 during the offseason by eliminating mistakes and teaching correct form. That is teaching speed. Instinct is developed with practice and experience, some players require less than others.

In my opinion, anytime someone says "you can't teach ___", they are doing nothing but limiting themselves to what is possible, simply because they've never done it before.

I believe that EVERYTHING can be taught. Maybe except height.

Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of BuffaloRumblings.com.
