"Motivation" under Stevens was never an issue...accountability for penalties (a continuing problem due to the culture he created), and accountability in general were.
You don't think that some of the players were shocked? Richards looked like someone just ***** his puppy.
But, yeah, Stevens is, by all accounts, a really nice guy who wants to be everyone's friend. I'm sure that the players loved him. Big paychecks and zero accountability. This coming offseason and following training camp are going to be a big wakeup call for a lot of players.
