    My question is this-

    If Kenny Britt looked like that while playing for free at Rutgers, but Fisher can't motivate the guy to be in shape NOW... who's really at fault here?
    We saw the same thing with Lendale. Pete Carol seemed to have no problem getting Lendale to work and stay in shape. Yet Fisher apparently made the guy lose all work ethic?

    Is Jeff Fisher not only a crap strategist, but also a crap motivator? Sure seems that way. Hopefully his clock was ticking last year and someone's actually watching that clock... can't have much time left with him consistently failing in every area of the team.

    There's no if. Sometimes it just happens. Derrick Mason?

    I know this, Heimerdinger is a hell of a QB and WR coach. Any of our receivers have a chance.

    Being dropped when Washington returned after playing well. Got to be a tough thing to handle mentally for a rookie.

    In college he's used to performing being rewarded with a starting spot.

    Fishbag is a special kind of idiot.

    Hawkins just has the case of bubble guts when on the field. i think he is overwhelmed to actually be playing at the NFL level. i hope he gets over it. if not, Dominique Edison is next on the list and he showed good skills in preseason with VY.

    Maybe it has something to do with them getting their paychecks? Something like the Haynesworth situation?

    They get time off and think they have made it and can relax. In college, you've got guys riding you all the time. Plus, your teammates are always around you, so there is some peer pressure to stay with the program. In the NFL, players leave and have no one around them. So they develop bad habits, especially those who aren't great self-motivators. It's similar to the reason why so many decent HS students end up failing out of college. Without the constant structure, they don't know what to do and they end up wasting their free time.

    Lendale had the same thing. But blaming Fisher for that is silly. Lendale showed up to the Combine with man titties. How can you blame Fisher for that? And as soon as Lendale went to Seattle they cut him. Why couldn't Carroll motivate him then? Had Fish ruined him? No. Marijuana and a bad attitude ruined Lendale.

    Right now Fish is teaching Britt a lesson about professional responsibility. Let's hope it takes.

    Hawkins has a ton or more upside than gage. In my perfect world our starters would be britt wash and hawk. All he has to do is catch the ball more than twice every three games and he will instanntly surpass gage.
