@MarcusDugan@MarcusDugan I was definitely thinking about Roy, and absolutely thinking about Lance!
It's certainly my theory for why a guy who was, at one time, a MUCH better player degrading into a guy who is, well, a jumble of nerves. Trent is just so, so much better when he blocks, it is astonishing. He's a strong, willful, powerful, and direct player. But get the ball in his hands, and he seems to melt under the pressure, as he did in the playoffs. 
I certainly hope that coaching/confidence/stability can fix this issue. I would think Pagano's player-friendly attitude and Pep Hamilton's innovative schemes would be on the more effective side of 'ways to fix this problem', but who knows. We'll see it on the field.

All cliches aside, I liked the press conference. Some interesting points were brought up. 
-Sounds like he's calling out Vontae, to a certain extent. "He can be as good as he wants" is pretty close to saying "He doesn't always put in the effort to be as good as he can be.". Which seems awfully close to true. -REALLY interesting stuff on Trent. Confidence? Comfort Level? It sounds a little bit like he's saying what I've felt about Trent, which is that his issue is that he's a headcase, rather than this being a talent issue. Something about the trade, the scheme, the new city, SOMETHING scrambled Trent's wires and he's not comfortable on the field. 
Grigson certainly SEEMS like a sharp guy who understands football as well as business (as evidenced by our cap space), but we'll see how well that translates to on the field action.

Who does these graphics? They're really sharp. Much, much more fun to look at than a big wall of text.
