Does winning a title matter much now?
of course it matters, but as I'm sure this year has shown guys, the unexpected (suspensions and injuries) can happen to the team as whole, let alone to that individual player.
Sam's already had an ACL tear. Chris Faulk was looked at as a possible top 15ish pick in the preseason and now that's gone (at least for this upcoming draft). that's likely to factor in to guys' thinking.
