I wrote a few weeks ago, this has been such a strange season for Mason. He's been so good at times, and so bad at others. I have no idea if there is something going on inside his head, something off the field, that's made it harder to concentrate this year, but it sure seems like it. Physically he can clearly still play, but mentally he's been all over the map. I remember once watching an interview with Jack Nicklaus in which he said that, when he was in the winter of his career, he felt like physically he could still do all the things he could do in his 20s and 30s, but mentally, he couldn't focus for four hours straight. Just a little distraction or breakdown here or there, and a whole round would be ruined. To me, that seems like as good of an explanation as any for Mason's erratic season. He still gets open, still runs great routes, still can make big catches. But sometimes his brain just isn't locked in, and when you're a professional athlete, that can make all the difference.
