Revis: “Intensity” Loss Hurting BucsNovember 8th, 2013
Superstar cornerback Darrelle Revis says a loss of “intensity” is a big part of what’s been dooming the Bucs in the second halves of games.
Revis made this revelation on WDAE-AM 620 last night. No. 24 was very clear that there’s been an unexplained dropoff after halftime, and it’s helping prevent the Bucs from closing out games.
Joe’s not sure how this happens repeatedly in professional football on a team that can’t find a win, with a coach, one would think, who would give his right arm for a W and obsesses about details. Intensity is one heck of a detail!
Hearing this also troubled Joe about the leadership on the football team. The voted captains and/or the new quarterback need to find away to deliver 60 minutes at maximum intensity. That won’t necessarily equal wins, but it’s got to happen.
This reminds Joe of the Bucs’ regular first-half funks during the Raheem regime. They inexplicably happened over and over and over again, much like the second-half swoons of the 2013 Bucs.
