No, I haven't.
I'm not sure I can find the right words to make you understand.
Everyone has their doubts. I don't think any reasonable person could not have doubts. The difference is that doubts don't rule the fanatic. The fanatic sees the silver lining, the implausible and believes that his team can do it.
He sees beatable teams and believes his team can beat them. He sees the possibility of losses by other contenders and holds on to that possibility.
I have far from given up. And if Dallas somehow loses to the Eagles, I still will not as long as there is the sliver of a chance.
