feel free to discuss what you think is the 1 thing that would make this team a contender (or say that they're too far from contending for one thing to make a difference).
I'm leaning towards the latter, but if i had to pick one thing its passionate roster leadership.
Since AP and Strahan left this team, we've had variations of the same problems, late season swoons, horribly flat performances in huge games, massive confusion on defense, no passion on or off the field.
while i think you could make an argument for coaching, the ability of this roster to tune out the coachings staff means its only a matter of time before it finds a reason to tune the new coaching staff out.
that's harder to do when someone's waiting at your locker to tear you a new one, pick you up when you're starting to fold, and tell you to get in freakin' line when you need to.
more than anything, more than positional talent or coaches, this team needs respected onfield leadership again.
