This is a guy who is a veteran and a leader, has a letter on his jersey, and he's being counted on heavily by management and the team. I know he did a ton of charity work after hurricane Sandy and I commend him for it...but was it really that hard to spend a few hours a day in the gym?

I'm hoping for his sake it's some sort of nagging injury or illness.
There's no way he conditioned himself physically only to perform the way he has. He's slow, albeit, he was also a little "slow" last year, but especially slow this year.
