Kerry got the best possible shot in the arm for their three-in-a-row All-Ireland hopes when they they were decisively dumped on their backsides by Derry at Parnell Park yesterday.
It had become obvious in recent months that complacency was going to be Pat O'Shea's biggest problem as the season progressed, but that is all gone now.
It is clear that if Kerry want to go all the way they will need to play their strongest team, show more versatility in response to dominant opponents and forget the notion their forwards will always be fancy enough to cod the opposition.
