So, are you saying professional athletes don't need to be motivated period? You are saying that all NFL players are professionals? Just asking, because some are not acting that way. Professionalism is about more than working hard. Conduct is a part of professionalism. You are absoloutely right about not benching Britt. One mistake does not warrant that. And I was only giving an example as far as motivation is concerned. However, if you fumble twice in the same game after it was stressed during the week leading up to the game, you should ride the bench for being a moron. I am not even concerned with Hasselbeck's INT. It was dumb, but it happens. Hell, even Manning and Brady have brainfarts like that from time to time. Ok, maybe I was not clear about what I actually mean. All I am trying to say is that sometimes you need a little kick in the butt in order to get going again. Maybe you need a hug. People are motivated by different things and people should be able to motivate themselves. However, sometimes they do need inspiration in order to do so.
