if you think these guys who are professionals aren’t trying you are crazy. these guys are in a business that their worth is measured by stats and game film. Not to mention that most football players have a sense of pride and respect for their own play and self that is second to none. So to think they have given up is a complete lack of understanding the professional sports arena and people in general. Dont get me wrong i strongly believe we look horrible …changes must be made. Better players or at least a better game plan that fits the players we got. We stink but the players care if anything about themselves and their own self respect.
It's not so much that their not trying, as it is that they seem to be playing like there already defeated. Subtle difference probably. Half the game is mental. (This from a guy who never actually played organized football).
