I think 1 or 2, a few
Not really. Fire power a champion doesn't make. We've seen that many many times. It's far more mental to be a champion and we really haven't seen that and he's old enough by now it should have shown itself if it were there. And when you have to make a list of what needs to improve at this point, it's already probably a lost battle.
