Nick Montana, Nate Montana, Barry Sanders Jr., Jerry Rice Jr., Trey Smith, Trevor Gretzky, Dylan Favre, among others all have one thing in common; they are related to famous people and are high school and college athletes. Considering that we are in our bye week, and most of us are sitting on our hind parts twiddling our thumbs, I thought I would create a fanpost and link some of these interesting videos that I found. Is it in the genetics? Quite possibly... I'll let you be the judge. Take a look.

Up above I made mention of genetics. Sometimes players like this work out and sometimes they don't. You have guys like Kellen Winslow Jr. and Peyton and Eli Manning that have proven that they are a force to be reckoned with at the NFL level. On the other side of the spectrum, a guy like Jarret Walter Payton who was released by the Titans after only one season but had mild success in NFL Europe for a couple years did not quite meet expectations.

Its my guess that some of the kids I mentioned above will not even make it past the High School level and others will fizzle in college. However, I do beleive that these kids have every opportunity to get to that level if they work dilligently and stay focused.
