Momentum has a lot to do with it. The team started the season very slow last year and never gained confidence. The were something like 2-8 after the first 10 games and while they somewhat recovered into being an average team afterwards they crashed again when Martin was fired. I think the players are going to compete far more intensely if they see they have a chance of making it, which they should unless they start the season very slow again.
