Let’s keep the season in perspective. It’s tough to watch a game as lopsided as the Detroit game. It hurts because you want YOUR TEAM to win and if you didn’t want YOUR TEAM to win, you wouldn’t be a TRUE fan. If you didn’t get upset you wouldn’t be a true fan. If you didn’t care we wouldn’t be blogging. )
I like many of you get upset with the “L” word. I’ve never had that word programmed into my mind as I played sports my entire life and I still compete daily in my real estate business for new business.
Many of you do too, on a day to day basis, in some small way. We’re all competitors.
“L-ing” isn’t in my vocabulary and it shouldn’t be in yours. I use words like set-back or ran-out-of-time. Really though, the reason I went through the above drill, so-to-speak was because after I played for the Broncos, I went to play for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers where our record was as follows.
Talk about tough, that’s tough, winning a total of 14 games in 3 seasons.
That’s why I’m having so much fun reading the papers and listening to the news and blogging this season because I know what it’s like and how different a town is (feels & thinks) that only wins 4 or 5 games in a season.
Just one or two injuries on a team can ruin a season for most NFL teams. We’ve had MANY more than our share and personally I was wondering if it was going to (or really when) would it show up. Well, it has.
We’re not firing anyone. We’re playing with what we have and going to do the best we can under the conditions presented because you can’t change injuries or cry about them. It’s a violent game and unfortunately part of the game.
