Took a week off

After the Seattle game I was so ****** that I didn't watch any video of the game, didn't look at NFL Network or watch any football for a week. I also didn't read any forums or do any GIFs. It was kind of nice. I get so caught up in the season that sometimes I need to be reminded that it's supposed to be fun.

I need to remember this the next time I start screaming at the TV or something similarly dumb. I'm going to try to learn to not take the losses so hard while still enjoying the wins just as much.

I did the same thing. Refused to read or listen to anything about the game. No use reliving the misery especially since I knew we would recover and live to play more great games.

Yeah. You surprised me Boutte. I spoke to Coach (Sir Sean Payton to you) and he said tell Boutte, and I quote
Any time you have a tough loss the next game canít come quick enough
.
Coach is always right.

funny how getting your butts handed to you on national TV can wake a team up.

Re: Took a week off

Last week spent as much time away from the talking heads as possible, Sunday I didn't watch any pregame garbage on NFLN or Fox and it was one of the best Sunday's I've had in a long time, I felt so refreshed come kick off

I'm a lifer man, been there since day one. This game was tough to take. I was expecting an epic battle which honestly I didn't expect to win. Getting spanked like that in prime time was rough.
