What a disgrace.
This. We've seen it time and time again, even with championship squads. Many would say "they'll flip the switch come playoff time" and it came true a couple of times, but we failed to do so in 2011 (remember Phil going at a reporter " .is it the playoffs yet? -well, no, but -is it the playoffs yet?" only to see our team not be able to click come playoff time?) and in 2012.
Teams keep getting better, our players older, and the record is worse.
We have MANY problems, but I've always absolutely HATED the fact that 'level of effort' is a HUGE question mark variable for this team.
