falken Posted September 13, 2010 Share Posted September 13, 2010 We lost to a championship caliber defense yesterday on the road in overtime. I find no shame in that fact.It is NOT the time to overreact.We didn't get blown-out 41-0. We didn't get embarrassed. We lost to a REALLY good team.I've seen Murlarkey, Ryan and Turner all rained upon with criticism. Sometimes you HAVE to be willing to give the other team credit. There is a reason that good teams win their home games. They have the ADVANTAGE.Seriously, did you really think we were going 16-0? There is a saying in the NFL that says the key to the playoffs is, "Win your home games and try to steal a few on the road."This team took the World Champs to the final round twice last season. We almost gave them their first loss with our backup quarterback. We have a better team this season. We still have many reasons for optimism. We have some things to work on but this team has plenty of upside with maybe the deepest roster in our team history.I still believe in this team. I still think we have a great chance for the playoffs and more. .........and I sure as #### ain't giving up after one game!Color me red.
