If he's ready to apply himself (and hopefully he will be, not just for the betterment of the team but for himself) and he can make it through Payton's first few minicamps that have been known to lay low mere mortals, I wouldn't be surprised to see him make the team.

The more important question: If he does make it and we win the Superbowl, does he get a movie made for him a la Invincible? What do they call it, BEERMAN and BEERTRUCK? The Littlest Giant? These are the questions that keep me up at night.

Certainly didn't have any kind of college career to speak of and just worked his as* off to make it. Now, can WT do the same? That's the big question on this kid, his work ethic. We all know he has the physical talents to get it done. If he can work his butt off and stay out of trouble, the sky is the limit. BTW, the reason there is so much talk about this kid is because he's the kind of story that everyone is drawn to. It's like in old time baseball when scouts would scour the country and abroad to find that one phenom who noone knows about. Course, we all knew about WT but know that he's signed it's a damn media explosion. Everyone talks about different players to mentor WT, like Whitehead etc. I would think a guy like Lewis who had to work his way up for the VERY bottom like WT would be a great role model for him.
I mean you're right, if he puts his mind to it, the sky really is the limit for Walter. But I think the reason why myself, and other people are "being hard" on him is that he has not shown anything to make us believe that he will put his mind to it. In fact, he's given us plenty of reasons to actively doubt him. Does that mean I'm not pulling for him? No, I think his physical gifts could be a huge advantage for this team. But do I realistically think he's going to make it? Nope. Typically guys who have such glaring character problems can't just flip the switch and say "OK, now I'm going to be a high character guy and adopt a great work ethic." It just doesn't happen like that.
