In reality, there's hope because we're not in yet. You don't get any gold stars for meaningful December games. Especially in this watered down league.
I don't think he was proposing to award any gold stars.
But while we're on the subject, I might. I'm pretty proud of this team. Would love to see them keep this ride going, but with all of the injuries on D, at some point I know it's going to come an end. If that happens tonight instead of next week or two weeks from now, I'll be disappointed, but still proud and grateful that the team gave me an opportunity to witness about 4-5 weeks of meaningful football that I would not have expected to witness, with the holes they have on the O-line and the way the D has been torn apart by injury.
Don't know if I'll be accused of somehow echoing Wade Phillips by saying that. Don't much care either. Just my view of things.
