    Yeah, I can't say I agree that KB wasn't the kind of guy who cared a lot about winning.

    Although, I did see KB and Finnegan at the TigerMart on Broadway right after the '08 playoff loss to the Ravens and they were all smiles and joking around. They looked like two guys who just won a playoff game rather than lost one. But I gave them the benefit of the doubt. It's their job. And everyone deals with disappointment in their own way.

    But on the field, and in the locker room, KB always struck me as the kind of guy who definitely cared about winning.

    KB was pissed after that game... he was shoving everything aside on his way to the locker room and he said that was the toughest loss of his career.

    You witness this? I've never read such things reported by the media. If so, I'll back off my opinion.

    Bulluck, IMO, never was the leader he should have been. I certainly don't see him being someone worthy to judge this defense when he was part of quite a few which looked like they laid down.

    I didn't know about the crying, but he was definitely throwing barriers aside in the tunnel. That's what I was referring to.

    I'm sure you can find the clips somewhere. I was one of the brave souls who watched our highlights after the loss... they showed KB pissed going into the locker room.

    Yes I saw it live, he was throwing stuff in the tunnel, kicking stuff in the locker room, then when interviewed you could see he was very emotional about it all. There's got to be footage of it somewhere, the cameras were everywhere.

    Even when Fisher wore the Manning jersey for charity you could tell the person bothered most by it was Keith.

    Keith and Cortland gave our defense the edge we no longer have.

    Yeah I remember that as well. They must've smoked a big fatty in the car though, because about half an hour later he was all smiles and giggles. My wife and I were actually talking about how much more depressed we were than them. LOL

    I didn't know about the throwing stuff in the tunnel until later that night.

    Addressing the questions of the OP, IMO, I think it has everything to do with the professionalism (character) of the individual players on the field.

    Professionalism means rising up when knocked down—not just because you take personal pride in your success—but because you don't want to let down the guy playing beside you. It's about accountability. It points to everything that team is about. Anyone who places their own success above the team or doesn't care if they let down a teammate is a cancer and needs to be gone regardless of their talent.

    It might be unrealistic to expect this anymore in professional sports.

    How did he quit on that play? You want him to chase down Urlacher when he's 40 yards away?

    Good post.

    But do you agree that it's been a problem pre-Munch era? And if so, what does that say about the people who are in charge of putting the roster together? Is it just "bad luck" that we end up with so many low-character guys?

    I know every team has their "me-first" players. Or guys who are just in it for a paycheck. And I know certain teams are much more well-equipped to overcome adversity than ours. But it just seems like we roll over more than most other teams, even the bad ones.

    IDK, perhaps it's not as bad as I'm making it out to be and it's just a situation where I (obviously) pay a lot closer attention to our team than others. But it sure as hell seems that way.
