I've had tons of things in my life that motivated me to be who I am today.
I won't go into my Military during a war...but, something in the experience motivated me after I got out.
You're probably motivated everyday and don't know it, or that some of that could be manufactured.
Did you hear about that citizen that saw a light helicopter land in a small ditch? He ran over there and literally picked the helicopter off the pilot and got him to safety. Manufactured motivation...
No, I'm pretty self aware, so when and how I am motivated isn't unknown.
But I do my own motivation.
Let's win this for the Gipper applies only if you could win it to begin with.
I don't believe the Cincy game was a motivated win sine Cincy couldn't hold onto the ball late in the game.
Murray and the running game married with the Stealers defense sucking on ice had more to do with that win than some mythical victory for Brown.
The game is three hours long. The motivational speeches at the beginning of the game wane when the going gets tough.
I prefer to believe this team has found a groove because of the running game coming back and Romo now having the play action to work correctly versus an Alamo theory of do or die.
By the way, saw the story about the helicopter.
Where were the other fifty men with him and did they individually hold the chopper up for three hours apiece? Because that is what you are selling here.
