Re: The loss finally hit me hard.
The reason why this one doesn't bother me that much is because of the way the season started and that no one expected us to even qualify as a wild card. So we did pretty damned good all things considered.
If we had started the season with a veteran receiver corps and all kinds of depth and the talking heads were picking us to go all the way and even the team believed it would and THEN we lost like this --- that would have hurt a whole lot more.
To me, this season was like going to play golf knowing that your game needs a ton of work but shooting a pretty good round anyway. Maybe it isn't the round you know you could play, but it was better than you expected.
That's a bonus in my book.
