Been happening for too long now to be just a flat spot.I see what you're trying to say, but I don't buy this.
Every team has flat quarters/games. We've been in every single game this year (Collingwood game was probably the least competitive game this year) because of the method.
We've hit a flat spot with our form, but when was it realistic that we were going to essentially win every game for the year? If Adelaide had truly worked our system out we wouldn't have beaten a red hot Brisbane, Dogs first time round and Port in Adelaide.
We've become too shy with the ball in hand. Like Trac said about our first half against Brisbane - we were/are boring.
We've been playing dour, boring footy and unable to fully click into a fluid attack. I think it's largely a mindset thing, though. Feel like we're a really good win away from finding form and confidence again.
Come out breathing fire and punish GC from the opening bounce and I think we could find our mojo again.
