As much as you want to point to "look at this small sample size" while ignoring ability, this story happens over and over again. Yeah, high end talent doesn't always translate. But low end talent production also almost never continues. Plenty of guys are good their first few years and fall off. It's not even uncommon. Lack of talent and increased exposure gets to everyone, eventually.
