Some students have a hard time understanding Algebra.
You can explain an equation to Matt over, and over and over again. His tutor can explain it over, and over and over again.
And on Test day, Matt still hasn't figured it out.
Now, that same teacher can explain that algebra problem to Andrew just once, and Andrew has it down. Now, over the course of the next 16 tests, new formulas will have to be explained, but it won't take long for Andrew to figure them out, he'll just need some practice since these tests are constantly throwing new and exotic equations at him.
Eventually, because of Andrews acute ability to solve math problems, he'll get it all down.
Matt on the other hand.....well....16 tests into the course, and he's still struggling with that first equation.
We need an Andrew.
Not a Matt.
And there are plenty of Andrews in the NFL. There might be only one Peyton, but plenty of Andrews.
