There is no doubt that loosing Revis is like a kick in the gut but now Rex and the coaching staff have to find a way to motivate this team and convince them that they can win and stay in the hunt without Revis. If they come out flat and with a chip on their shoulders SF is going to have a great scoring day as they are anxious to show that they are not as bad as their last loss to the Vikes.
I like Rex, but I have to say, on Sunday, it really looked to me like a lot of players were lazy, for lack of a better term. Cromartie looks like he's barely trying, and half the D is jogging to the ball, not gang tackling like a tenacious D should. I thought to myself on Sunday that this team has given up. Don't know what it is, but they don't seem motivated, or seem to give a shyt about playing every play and playing hard. A handful of players seem to give a strong effort every play, but the majority just don't. I dunno, JMO.
I think the team is plenty motivated they just need a little more time to adjust. I'm assuming most people work for a living and have a set schedule. Well so do the Jets & they just changed it up so the players can sleep more. I can relate as I recently changed office locations & hours only I have to get up earlier and drive farther. (-;
Rex and the coordinators will make adjustments, the players need to learn on the fly because that's what they chose to do for a living and being at the top of the division isn't the worst thing in the world.
Darrelle is an elite player and will be sorely missed by those of us who weren't throwing stones at him a few days ago for being in a sports bar. Best part of that silly noise is the picture didn't even have him with a drink in his hand. If anythng I think the players would rally because Darrelle is someone who is very well liked in the locker room, is hurt and now someone else needs to step up.
I wish the team much luck & success in achieving that.
