Keeping the guys focused for the entire game seems to be an issue, especially 3rd quarter. Is this a coach's responsibility or players? or both? Is the cause all mental or does fatigue & injury play a large role? Was Carr effected by the Vince hoopla? If yes, does this plus his being benched indicate a much better game Sunday? We seem to do better against stronger teams.

Both, what we do for our team, which seems to work, is condition, and then do something that takes a lot of mental focus. That way you can work on your mental focus while you are fatigued. It is easy to be focused when you are in a practice bubble nad you are loose and you have barely broken sweat...but when you just ran a bunch of sprints, pushups, squat jumps etc. and then you are asked where you throw the ball when the #1 receiver is caught up in a jam and the slot guy is running a post which is being carried by a linebacker, it is a challenge.

That is where it is the coaches fault ^^ get them ready.

It is the players fault for not practicing like it is a game. Games are won monday through saturday. Sunday just displays what kind of money was put in the bank monday through saturday. Players should practice every rep as if it was a game situation and when watching film put themselves in the film etc.
