    Okay guys, this is a serious question.

    After a loss, when have you fully recovered from it? Using myself as an example..
    after this game...
    I skipped dinner
    shut off my cell phone
    and have shut sat here miserable.

    Tomorrow:
    people know enough not to talk to me at all until I speak first.
    wont eat breakfast or lunch.

    And then by tomorrow evening, I will eat a good dinner and get ready for Monday Night Football and will become less agitated. Then, by Tuesday AM, things will be back to normal....accepting the fact that my football team is a .500 team.

    How long will it take you to get over this loss?

    I used to pout at everyone around me, now I just do it on here. I've been in a bad mood over the Cowboys for 18 years.

    I give it the ol' 24-hr rule, so I'm usually good by Tuesday.

    It takes me about 10min before I'm done. You gotta move forward in all three phases.

    I'm in a foul mood... for the rest of the day. But I don't skip meals or go anti-social over football games. Not since I was a teenager anyway. I guess we are all different.

    I am over it right now............Garrett has made me used to .500 ball at this point so nothing to get upset about.

    Its all about expectation, just like I expect Denver to roll this .500 joke of a team next week so when that does happen, nothing to be mad about.

    I was the same way when I was younger. But after almost two decades of this ineptitude, I'm kind of use to it. I won't let our dolt GM or buffoon HC get the best of me. You'll see, it's a process........

    The losses no longer hurt. Breaking Bad has helped this season. But up until last season, the hurt from losses lasted until Thursdays.

    you appear to have a good grasp on things while having your feet firmly planted on the ground. Thats a good job by you.

    Good as new right as I type this, because believe me or not, if Ware, Selvie, Hatcher and the rest of the D is all healthy, I believe we can put some pressure on Manning and actually pull the upset.

    Me and a buddy of mines was talking about this after the game, it took a lot longer in the 90s. I guess my expectations were much higher then. Now I use this board and texting friends that are fans as venting so ill be over it before the MNF game.

    I'm good in the 4th quarter. This is an 8-8 team and has been my entire adult life. I'm 30 years old.
