A generic comment about a player is "He's a young guy with a lot of talent". The rest on there is not for no reason m8.
I hope he gets his head straight and takes it seriously this year. We need a QB to really step up, and it's going to take both he and Trevor pushing themselves as hard as they can to cause both of them to work harder and for one to come out on top as a much better product. If Lynch or Trevor phones it in, the other will get the job by default and will probably not work as hard. So lets really really hope there's nothing to this.
I think we have to take wishful thinking out of the mix on these types of things tho. People keep saying these things about him for a reason. He's young tho, and could snap out of it (if it is an issue); it'll be up to him tho. No one else can change what he is or isn't, but him.
