Odd story about Aaron Ross

I think we can all agree that Aaron Ross took a step backward last season after being a large part of the playoff push and Super Bowl run of '07.

The Post ran a story today citing general malaise and depression as the reason. The story has direct quotes from Ross saying things like:

"I didn't even like playing football, to tell you the truth," Ross revealed to The Post recently from training camp. "Going to the games I wasn't excited. Coming to practice I wasn't excited. I wasn't happy."

and:

"I didn't like my second year at all," Ross said. "I knew I'm more of a playmaker than I showed. I really think it was more about me not being happy. It really is hard for me to explain, because I'm a young guy and to be tired of something I just started is sort of disturbing."

I guess it's good news that he "got his head straight" and is looking forward to making an impact again this season but it begs the question: How could a 2nd-year player making $3 million, coming off a Super Bowl win and tasting success, need to soul search for motivation? To be honest that worries me a bit.
