Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle, Johnny Unitas, Michael Jordan, Tom Seaver, Rod Laver, Wayne Gretzky, and on and on --- virtually all the great athletes with "immortal" legacies ended their careers with a few years of very modest performance, but who thinks less of them today? These threads about hurting one's legacy always seem to lose sight of that fact. Have a little perspective. A generation later nobody's thinking about how your career ended. They're thinking about what it was at it's heights. Having said that, Blake has had an OK career but hardly the kind that people will be talking about years down the road.
