The coach is the one who sets the tone.
If a team comes out flat in a big game, that is on the coach.
That sis what you have a coach for.
No. Leaders on the field set the tone. Rex is on the sidelines. You want him to go out there and tackle?
Gettting pushed around is coming out flat. Revis admitted it. Team wasn't into that game like they were the week before. Its sports....they put all their eggs in the Patriots basket and felt satisfied. Its unfortunate for the fans, but the players and Rex felt they won the SB that year.
The Sanchez fumble shouldnt have been a TD...and the offense finally got going in the second half....but still the defense just didnt have their usual swagger that game. The last drive was a kick in the nuts.
Meh, Ben was 10-19 w/ 0 tds and 2 picks. They just got pushed around in the first half at the LOS. Something they werent doing all year long. sh*t happens.
Nobody on defense stepped up. I dont blame that on Rex. I highly doubt he took that game lightly. He knew what was at stake and I dont give a **** what Revis says, so did every single player on that team. You're fool to think otherwise, especially since it was the 2nd time in a row in that situation and a 3rd time in a row for Rex.
