Honestly, I don't get threads like these, at all. We're in contention for a playoff spot....until we aren't. It's not something to prepare yourself for emotionally. All you do is watch the games. We're beat up, and we just dropped a game we couldn't afford to drop. So did everybody else. It isn't a fan-card check moment. And I'm not a happy fan for thinking we're contending for a playoff spot. We simply are. Understanding that doesn't make me a homer. And it doesn't put me at risk for having my feelings hurt later. I'm a big boy. I understand how NFL playoff seeding works. And I've seen enough games in this league to know what a difference four or five weeks actually makes. You'd think we'd all be aware of that by now. Seriously. No? What am I missing that this stuff is an open debate? Is it really just boiling down to people who are depressed about the team wanting the people who are excited about it to feel the same way they do? And vice versa? Even though both sides really know they have to just wait to see how it plays out? Because that seems pretty silly.
