The maturation process is difficult, hard on the orchard. Huge carbon life forms are flying around you as if you're standing in the middle of a NASCAR track. There are hit-and-runs, mistakes, mumps, measles, growing pains. Big, bad boogeymen are out to get you, because you're not only a dartboard, you're a fuzzy young peach hanging on that passing tree. </font>

    <font class="newstext">Brother, you are there to be prematurely picked. </font>

    <font class="newstext">Rookie Dan Marino managed, as did Ben Roethlisberger, although to a far less extent, not given nearly as much to do. John Elway? Uh-uh. Troy Aikman? Hardly. Peyton Manning? No. His Brother, Jughead? Nope. You could go on. It's like coming out of grade school and being asked to teach at Stanford.</font></blockquote>
