Now granted, we got beat down but I still like to see that edge. I think it pays if more often then not WHEN its harnessed the right way. Guys like Houston, Flowers, and Berry need to bring that. Especially with our fart DL. Hali and DJ are great, but they don't really bring the wood in terms of attitude.
I think it goes a long way, and it showed in the GB and DEN games two years ago late in the season.
Truthfully, ego is like oxygen for positions like CB. If you don't believe to a metaphysical certainty that you are King Shit of Turn Mountain each and every play, there's an edge you lose that is imperative. A team with Mark McMillan in its history should know this.
It can backfire when you fail, but it buoys a precarious boat in the preponderance of plays.
