    Martinez more comfrotable in front of the media?

    Just watched one of the videos on the OWH site where Martinez was answering some questions. He appeared to be much more comfortable and relaxed with the media. Smiling and just overall seem to be a better spoken person. Is it just me? And does this bode well for his growth in the offseason?


    The universe seems neither benign nor hostile, merely indifferent.

    He seems to be getting more comfortable imo.

    It looks like Taylor is maturing some to me as well. That was a short video, but he doesn't seem so cock sure, arrogant like when he was a Frosh. He sounded much more like a upperclassman. Time, age and experience do wonders for people. Let's hope it translates to the field.

    I dogged Taylor some last season. I've been on his bandwagon in 2012. If there is anything I have learned from this game is that kids mature at different speeds. Anytime you have a kid play early as Taylor has, you get a big swing of ability and comfort as you go through the process. It happens in high school. It happens in the college game and it happens in the pros. They scoughed at Namath and Bradshaw when they first moved to the show. They did a 180. They said Frost would never be a winner. That turned out OK. Martinez will make progress. How much is still to be determined. I would imagine there still will be two more years of growth before he's gone. That is exciting. The next group of quarterbacks through the system won't have to endure their entire learning process exposed for all to see and whine about. Martinez should be one tough mother before he's through.

    He should be getting more comfortable. Year three and lots of exposure to the media by now.
    I don't think America should elect any President in 2016. We need to be single for a few years and find ourselves.

    Watching that video, he is clearly more comfortable, especially during the "boot" signing question.

    Would expect that from a 21 ( almost 22 y/o) Man, Vs a 19 yo kid.

    Not sure it really tells us anything.

    We will find out soon enough. I will believe it when I see it.

    Scotty Frost did take a little heat that first year, didn't he? I was in Tempe when ASU drubbed us that night. Lovely experience

    Your statement about kids maturing at different rates is dead on, IMO.

    I'm expecting good things from the kid. I hope our OC can set him up for consistent success because I think he's got some outlandish tools.

    It doesnít matter if the glass is half full or half empty. What matters is you have a glass that has something in it. Some people have no glass, or have a glass with nothing in it. So appreciate all that is in your life and quit questioning whether your glass in half full or half empty.
