What happened to Lance is exactly what happens when a happy but clueless couple decides they want to have a kid, so they go and have a kid, and THEN they learn the hard way about all the things that come with having a kid. The shine of “having a kid” wears off REAL quick once you actually have one. Similarly, the “exciting young QB” shine wore off of Lance when we got him into our practices and games and found out what he actually was, which is a small school QB not ready for the NFL. And just like having to raise that kid now, it is what it is, and all we can do is work through it.
