Anyway, regrouping is what the offense, defense, special teams should be doing when they're on the sidelines....checking out the photos from above, discussing strategy with teamates, getting an earful from the coaches, etc. In the NFL, you don't get down by an unsurmountable sum within 90 seconds, so save those timeouts for last-minute drives, challenges, etc.
I am going to claw my freakin eyeballs out if I read any more about how good a "motivator" Coach Sing is, as if other teams don't f(&*(*&kin play hard. That is the dumbest thing on the world. What matters is can he and his staff coach, can they game plan, do the players have faith in the game plan on Sunday. IF he cannot then eventually they will lose faith in the coaches if they cannot.
That remains to be see, but I have my doubts thus far. He has gotten the team to play over their heads in one game and then been exposed in another. In three games we beat teams solidly (NFC west).
That is the way it is so far, and now we have a mid-season run that will tell us how things are going.
BUT PLEASE, stop talking about motivation as if Coach's speech making is some type of panacea for everything.
