I could make some guesses as to what was behind that, but there's no point in that. All I know is he came out yesterday looking like the same Kamara we've seen for weeks, and had that play where he just gave up and went out of bounds. And, as I said in an earlier post, you could see Drew was not pleased, and I think there was probably a "spirited" conversion on the sidelines, afterwards, because it was after that point that a light just seemed to come on and he looked like his old self again.

To me, that is a sign that there was more than just an injury holding him back. There was a lack of focus/fire, for whatever reason, and he just needed something to get him back in gear. I realize this is just speculation on my part, but I think basic understanding of human nature and seeing how that switch suddenly flipped makes it a plausible theory.
Sounds reasonable. Canít say Brees ever lacked Fire. Heís had bad days. Some really bad days. But drive and effort was never in question. I could see Brees sharing some ďfireĒ after Kamara stepped out of bounds, especially since we ended up punting one play later.

An injury doesn't have to be serious to have it effect you seriously. Ingram had turf toe and played like dry **** for at least half a season. For Kamara's running style, something very small can change his ability to run the way he should. What I noticed wasn't his fire being gone, it was his patience. That hand on someones ass waiting for the opening wasn't there for start of the season, he was running into holes that were not there... like, you know.. Ingram. lol Kamara is not a pinball style running back.

Every get an eyelash in your eye? That sh1t is crippling lol

Those comments probably coming from "fantasy" league players. Those guys along w/ can't guard Mike are the reason this team is about to when a franchise best 13 games. Drew is the most accurate passer in league history besides all the yardage and TD records he's setting. The league is changing to RPO QB's. Drew is not a running QB, and yet he is one of the least sacked QB's.
I ain't betting against him. There is NOT another QB in the league, that I would want lining up behind center currently!!!!!!!!
