It's funny, because as much as that would be such a vast improvement, I feel like my energy has pent up for so long that anything less than a Super Bowl is a failed season.I would love for us to have back to back winning seasons and make the playoffs both seasons.
That sentence in bold is insightful, IMO.I'm more nervous for tomorrow than I was for my SATs, grad school finals, and licensing exam all put together. And you know what? It's only going to get worse as we get better.

This is it. I'm gun shy. After 20 years of misery, one win against a wounded opponent isn't enough. But it's a start.Boone said:Maybe we need to see more. See that improbable performance against the Giants repeated. Experience the sights and sounds of something resembling success and good football over and over again to rewire our neural paths and synapses. Perhaps only time and consistent experience can replace our Pavlovian expectation of doom at the sound of the bell with something more promising.
