I think you have to blame some of that on the coach. Myers has all the tools and as a rookie was as composed and confident as any vet. Since then he has only gotten worse. Coaching has a large part to do with that IMO.
Maybe its more about teams knowing Myers better. Maybe he will never be a huge offensive threat ever again. What I care about more is that he becomes a shutdown defensive player. If he can be a mix of McKee and Campbell in the future, then great, but right now I would like to see him play a more simple game.
I guess that would be blaming Ruff also because IMO RUff wants him attacking, although some fans here think otherwise. Myers is ultra aggressive and its hurting him. IMO he is the same player from his rookie year but teams play him differently now that they know what he wants to do. Plus Miller isnt saving him anymore like he did his rookie year.
