the thing is these players are not staying on the field long enough to establish a connection with the fans due to constant injuries. that and the fact that this defense refuses to make crucial stops on 3rd down and get turnovers demoralizes the spirit of the fans in the stadium. also i would like to see more personalty from our players, similar to what DEZ shows on nearly every play. scrap the RKG/robot philosophy, play with more EMOTION. where is the kenny gant or deion sanders or michael irvin personalty on this team that gets the crowd pumped up? other than dez there is nobody and unfortunately even dez has been scolded by the country club elites in our organization and fanbase to tone it down.
I really like the Bruce idea and will roll with it... We also need to find someone on offense to cheer on like that. Or like Denver does when a pass is incomplete by the other team on 3rd down.. the announcer says.. that pass was.... IN-COM-PLETE...... and the crowd yells it loud. It is something that gets EVERYONE involved because it is catchy to say.
Also agree with you that players here need to show emotion, passion, and swagger on the field. The problem is, most of these guys look to the veterans and the veterans are quiet non leader types. That is why this team needs to be blown up. Just a bad mix of players.
