Terrell has ADD

Article says that he refused to take his meds while in Chicago. That could expalin his play while he was there. Hopefully the Pats can get him to take it.

ADD stands for Attention Defecit Disorder correct?In Terrell's case it's the lack of attention he was getting,rather than the attention he was paying to things that was his problem.ADD distracts you,makes you unproductive,and as a child can make you very difficult due to frustration.As an adult,it doesn't make you act like a child.You learn to deal with the frustration.It's called growing up.Everybody has something that can be cured with a pill nowadays,and I for one feel 90% of it is nothing but bull.He wanted people to see him,recognize him.When he didn't get that,he became a problem.If he was praised for a good game,he was happy,all smiles.Doctors can claim nearly anyone has ADD anymore,and often do because it's the easy way out.

Not an excuse for bad behaviour, but a reasonable one for not getting through the playbook. That could be a big reason why he has not performed well in the NFL. It takes a lot of work, dedication, and studying to make it in the pros. If you can't sit down and study.... :-t

Right on the ball I think. ;-D I mean, I can't vouch for those who have this "disorder," but sometimes I think it's just another name for daydreaming. It's not like this hasn't been around since humans existed...just because they found a PC name for it doesn't mean it's a new problem.

Anyway, if the Pats give him a nice Ritalin bath, I'm sure he'll feel a little better...but I doubt they are going to make him the focus of the offense because of it.

I do agree with you on that point as well. But it can be a real issue for the "few" that are really affected by it.

There is such a thing as adult ADD, but I don't see how it would cause you to drop passes.

This sound like a lame excuse to me.
