I’m not saying this pertains to OBJ, but a high maintenance player can stunt the growth of a young QB. There were more than a few people who felt Shockey getting hurt in 07 wasn’t the worst thing in the world for Eli’s development. Some would even argue his hot streak coinciding with Shockey’s injury wasn’t totally unrelated.
OBJ’s talent can make the life of which ever young QB we have so much easier, if they’re on the same page. It depends whether their personalities are high maintenance, yet inclusive of their teammates, or high maintenance and selfish. So far you can say what you want about OBJ but you’d be hard pressed to find a teammate to speak poorly of him.
