The past couple of months, I haven't seen this team playing on the edge and therefore, they haven't been playing with passion and intensity. Based on the replys, I guess I am alone on this one. Guess everything is just fine how it is. We are in first afterall. With this style, I should have no problem getting onto a golf course in May. Sweet.
Maybe they haven't been playing on the edge because they are lacking passion and intensity because they have (basically, if not mathematically) had a playoff spot locked up for weeks?
