An insight on Eugene Wilson's fall
- From Reiss's chat today:
Can you please answer a historical pats question for me --what
happened to Eugene Wilson? I don't mean where is he now, I mean how
did a player who was a rising star in his first couple years turn into
a stinker almost overnight? Was he not really a good player? If you
can't answer this now, can you look into it and let your reading
public know? Thanks
That's an interesting one, Seth. I don't think Wilson is a stinker, as
he has had a longer-than-average career at this point. As for where
things went off course in New England, it might have had something to
do with the complete package and the willingness to go that extra
mile. The Patriots are a demanding program and I seem to remember some
veterans looking in Wilson's direction at times and wondering if he
was fully committed to what it takes to thrive here.
