    KB was just on the Midday 180 for his weekly segment. They were talking about the Bears loss. As well as the 59-0 loss from 2009, which KB was a part of. He said that some guys "Just don't care if they lose. The game is just a means to a paycheck for them." But then the last thing he said before he left was "I just don't see any fight in this Titan team. Even earlier in the season when they had chances to fight back."

    I wish they would've followed up with "What do you think is the cause of that? And how do you fix it?" So I guess I'm asking it here. And first and foremost, do you even agree with what Keith said? I most certainly do. And I think it's been a problem for several years, pre-dating Munch. So this isn't meant simply to be another Munch-bashing thread. Although I do think at the end of the day, this is his team and it's up to him to change the culture.

    Is it all on coaching? Or do we REALLY just have that many turd players who simply don't care? That's always been hard for me to believe but I suppose it's possible. Is it a broader problem with the culture of the team? Is it a little bit of everything?

    Every team has their bad games, some worse and more often than others. But you just don't see many teams seemingly accept defeat so early in a game like we do (at least I don't). Too often we look lethargic and like we're just going through the motions out there when we get down a couple scores, even if it's VERY early in the game. And again, it's been a problem for years IMO. I just don't get it and want it fixed. When did this team become so damn weak-willed?

    Coaches inspire fight, Munchak clearly does not.

    Griffin definitely doesn't care. CJ doesn't care. Britt probably doesn't care. Outside of those three, I think our players care about winning.

    Every team has turd players that quit.

    But where we're different is that we rarely get those plays that change the feeling, and if we do get 1 here and there, we shoot ourselves in the foot later on and negate whatever momentum we did have.

    The way you fix that is to get off to a fast start.

    Notice how things went vs Detroit, Pittsburgh, and Buffalo? We came out hot and that's what keeps turd players in line.

    CJ doesn't care? He's our best/most productive player. How much more can he care than others?

    So just because he puts up good numbers means he cares about winning?

    He only cares about his numbers.

    I believe he does care, but on some plays there's no denying he's simply going through the motions.

    I deny that. And I'd win the argument in any court because you have no evidence to make such claims. HATER.

    Whats the difference? Production is a means to winning.

    He plays hard for his numbers vs he plays hard to win. He plays hard either way.

    Of course you'd deny that, you have blind love for him.
