Let me take both sides of this issue.
Sherman has shown signs of being an idiot. Let's say he get's motivated? What do we now have.... That is right! "A motivated idiot."
In Shermans defense....
These guys on the field are NFL players. They should be able to motivate themselves they are professionals.
The bottom line is there needs to be more motivation in all areas of the Packers. Motivation is not a sometime thing. Motivation is like taking a bath.... You have to do it every day or your thinking gets a stinking...
Brett needs to stop thinking (Or at least giving interviews.) about how his focus is not 100% becuase he is thinking about the people back home. When you have the leader of your team, saying in an interview that he has other things on his mind that is not a good thing.
Sherman needs to forget about friendship and give his good buddy a career adjustment for the sake of the 28 professionals that Rossley is directing. Sherman's namesake 140 years ago General Sherman, in the war of Northern Aggression canned some of his friends who were not commanding his troops in Sherman's march to the sea. This is the NFL and in the NFL he has to be a General.
Sherman also needs to hire an acting coach... or seek professional speaking advice... if he is going to inspire people. He is the master of seal talk and that makes him sound like he is dumb even if he is not.
Some of you may be asking what seal talk is... Well count the number of times he says "Uuumm" in his press conferences. The last press conference I listened to I counted over 40 "Ummms" Count em... He says "Ummm." every 5 seconds.
Seal talk.... Ummm... Ummm. Ummm..... Umm Umm. (Now imagine him holding his arms out and clapping them together every time he says ummmm.) Motivators of people do not talk like a damn seal! Listen to old footage of Vince.
Now do not get me wrong... I am not a Sherman hater... I think he is a man who knows his football, he knows his X's and his O's... I think he is a brilliant football mind. He lacks the ability to fire me up, and I would guess he lacks that fire-em-up leadership ability in the locker room as well. That is a guess based on how this team comes out for almost every game, I have never of course been in the room with the man.
I am not bashing Sherman, heck we could talk about Al Davis my hero, and I will be the first to tell you he has lost part of his mind. But at least Al knows still knows when to get rid of people and Rossley would have lasted 3 quarters of the first game of the season with the Raidahhs if he was on Al's staff. James Franklin would doing a better job than Rossley right now.
