Re: Remind Me Not to Get Excited

My question is, how can you not be excited and ALL IN after yesterday. That game was completely off the chain. Even rickety old man Colston WALKED INTO the end zone for his TD!!! There was just no one anywhere near him, for like half the field!!! And Cooks strutted in for his TD, doing that straight-legged, kick-step thing like a drum corps leader with a baton would do. How can you not love that?

There's times to be cautiously optimistic and restrained, to measure, to pull on your goattee and squint, to be calculated, to examine the weaknesses and measure all the intangibles. And then there's times to just throw your whole bowl of popcorn in the air, and high five the people all around you, and this was definitely one of those times.

Nope. Not Karma, just Spags...

Indeed, I have pulled on my goatee and squinted a lot in the early portion of this season. More of the pulling than the squinting. It helps keep the walls around me intact.

But yeah, I wasn't excited about the defense yesterday, though the score made it look worse than it was. There were some huge mistakes out there that had nothing to do with the Giants. The Giants were lucky in that sense, but it still means the defense was responsible for screwing it up. That said, you can't not be excited about scoring 52. Offense has been this team's identity for a decade.

So even when the defense struggles, when you can score like that, it feels like the old days (not the old, old days). If the defense becomes somewhat consistent, this team has a chance to win any game on the schedule now.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

Re: Remind Me Not to Get Excited

Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!!!!!

Remember, the Defense allowed 48 points.

Keep the faith, just don't drink the kool-aid.
