Then when they saw it happen once, then twice, then a third time.... that it got to them.

He went on to talk about how each game is different and the game plans are game specific & things like that. How they can't listen to all that & trust their game plan.

He went on to say how he still believes their game plan was a good one, that it was an execution thing. However, I also got the feeling that he'd fall on a sword for Wade if asked to, so grain of salt & all that.
Maybe that's what he meant. They were defnitely "star struck" during that game. They were over-amped, and almost over-anxious. It was obvious. They were totally mentally intimidated.
