Tactless and inappropriate comment.
You know, Webb's career is a lot like Prefontaine's career. Ended real early, never to be heard from again.
Thanks for the post.

If he's stays in the Northwest too long he will be.
Neither does excess upper body bulk.
... Btw, talent does not just go away.
The only way he gets the fire back is to go work a desk job for a year?
He has to get his head back into it - this sort of half-in, half-out thing he is doing is not going to cut it. He had no fight last year.
He should quit competing and serious training for a year - he's only 27 so it won't hurt his long term chances. I don't know what his financial situation is - maybe Nike gets him a $50,000 a year actual corporate job. He works. He either recognizes that he loves to compete and misses it...or he realizes that it is over and he wants to do something else great.
That's the only way he gets the fire back.
I'm questioning the motivation of a guy who ran
why question the motivation of someone returning from achilles surgery? do you realize how foolish it sounds? it's like heckling a guy with a broken leg for not racing more.
When you're the best guy in the race by a significant margin it's easy to look ferocious.
And just look at him - watch the video of his AR mile. He was an animal - ferocious. Then watch one of his races in 2009. He never fought - he just tucked in the middle. He may have been hurt in all of 2009, but he had no fire.
