At least twice in recent times, coach Lancaster has cared to remind the press that Maas is not a "raw raw" guy. He states Jason leads by the quiet full effort style. In my opinion, Ron recognizes that no player has stepped up to be a team leader on the field or in the dressing room, since Danny Mac departed and Ron knows the team badly needs a raw raw leader to be more successful. I'm sure he desires Jason to take on a more vocal leadership role, both in the dressingroom and on the field. particularly with his receivers.
Perhaps Jason mistakenly feels he can't really take on that role right now, which would be a new role for him, if a nagging injury is preventing him from delivering his own goods. Perhaps it is that Jason is not of the personality to ever be that way.
But the team needs a vocal leader! Somebody has to step up!
May be a rouster like Word or Mihelic could serve a purpose. LOL!
Bob, give me the entire roster for February and March, some prime woodland in N. Carolina, a GOOD budget, logistical help, and access to National Guard training facilities, and I will GUARANTEE you that I will build teamwork and develop leadership on this team...
Jason will never be our knight in shining armour until he learns
to put aside his frustration with the last play that was unsuccessful
and switch his mind over immediately to concentrating on the next play.
If Jason tried to make a table in his workshop at home
he would never get it finished. He would smash it to pieces
as soon as he made a couple of mistakes on it.
I would rather have a QB like Dunnigan, Flutie, Dickenson, Auston or from what I've seen recently Buck Peirce.
The qualities I want a QB who is confident, focused and can lead a team.
You menton Henry Burris, well I wouldn't want Burris for the same kind of reasons you mention, however, right now I don't like what I see from Jason either. He doesn't leave me the impression that he has the ability to motivate and raise the level of effort from his offense. The other names i've mentioned (outside of BP) were able to raise the level of play from their offence and lead.
yeh im the same way, jason a bitch and cries all the time, i cant stand that he whines abuot how he had a bad game and says he'll do better, dont say it unless u can deliver, we've waited half the season now lets go, jeez
