    We have a slow start to the season. Gates and VJ were ignored for most of the game. We didn't throw much to LT. We didn't use Tolbert enough on short yardage. We have the same problem right now that we had last season, with a lack of focus on game time prep and season prep in camp. I don't doubt that we will build toward the end of the season, but this team needs to build an attitude of winning from game one. No player, including Merriman or anyone else, has the right to compromise the team with ego driven obstinance. You refuse consensus medical treatment, you go on IR immediately. You enter training camp with an injury that has been recommended for surgery by medical consensus you go on the pup. The team is the priority. You want to go on some egotistical, testosterone driven, monomaniacal campaign, do it from your living room.

    I agree. A team which wants to win the Super Bowl comes out with intensity and a take no quarter attitude from game one. This lackadaisical prep and indulgance of a media seeking player will not win enough games to make the playofffs much less the super bowl.

    I feel like I watched a replay from last season.

    I love my bolts, but sometimes, they have to hear the truth.

    We were ****ing sleepwalking through most of the game. Almost NO intensity.

    I'm giving 'em a mulligan for today. Different conference, no big significance in the standings.

    BUT .... it better be a wake up call. No 1-3 starts this year. That is not an option. :no:
