Saints football isnt everything...

The whole ride to work this morning (enemy territory I might add) I am trying to convince myself that its over. Move on. Let it go. Saints football doesnt rule everything.

Not even 30 seconds later Im like "Yeah but we're not done yet". Then I pull out the phone to check this weeks schedule so I can start scoreboard watching lol.

Whats wrong with me?! Why cant I let it go!!

Am I the only one?!

Re: Saints football isnt everything...

You're not the only one. There is absolutely nothing wrong with hanging around in the bleachers until they officially turn off the lights, it's a part of fandom. But emotionally, yes, it's over -- let it go, don't stress out about it, don't invest energy in angst or worrying about stuff. I already know I will start to get amped up again this weekend, if a couple of these other teams lose their games, and that's OK.

The way it's been so far this year, I actually kind of feel like this particular team has one more shot in them, to claw their way back into possibly being distantly "in it" again, they might well get a couple of lucky bounces, find themselves vaguely in the hunt again, like around week 15/16, and then of course without Payton they'll crash and burn one more final dramatic time. But I'm not going to be heartbroken about any of it.

Very true

I just find it quite alarming brees has reverted back to his 2010 form and a player of his caliber that shows how great he can be, goes through these mental lapses for 2-4 games every season where he starts forcing passes

Great post, I think this describes how I feel perfectly. Deep down I know its over, but if they get on a hot streak and a few other teams start losing, Ill get fired up for a sec.

But when they inevitably crash and burn I wont be near as pissed because the expectation left last night.

This is the Brees way and Ive learned to accept it. Pure greatness 70-80% of the season, with favre syndrome the other 20-30%. He really reminds me of the 08 Brees at the moment. Picks down the stretch that year did our post season hopes in.
