Rob mentioned this in the links, but I wanted to do a separate post about it.  Justin Hunter is a special talent.  There is no doubt about it, but if he doesn't focus and do things the right way, he will be "just another guy."  I am glad that the coaching staff is pushing him they way that they are, and I am glad that Hunter is taking it so well.  Here is what he had to say after practice yesterday (via Wyatt):

"The receivers have been talking about that for a minute, since last year, just playing around," Hunter said with a slight grin. "But then coach Whiz said something about it in a meeting … and said, 'Justin, you can be a great player, but after that play, you look like 'Just Another Guy.' "

"He (receivers coach Shaun Jefferson) has no remorse for me," Hunter said. "He holds me to the highest standard, so he asked them to put it on my jersey. With coach Jefferson, it is all the same. I take it all in."

It is good to renew focus at this point during camp. Hopefully this is the spark that Hunter needs to take the next step.
