To be tied after 3 quarters and to give games away as they have been doing because of laziness---no hustle---no defense--then it is time to no longer reward the multimillionaires who don't even feel embarrassed by their D or lack of it.
Two suggestions: either trade for players who care about D or how about docking each player's paycheck based on every game for not hustling and playing consistent D? Maybe if the players feel it in their wallet, they may decide to give 100% every single game.
