What really sucks is that compared to the really good teams like New England and Green Bay the difference was crystal clear.
Me too. Probably most of us. I'm as die hard a green and white fan as they get and this sh*t is killing me. But it's true. Look at the consistently good teams: NE, Packers, Steelers. Tough-minded coaches. Tough players. Stay out of the headlines. Go to work. Be in every game. Don't buy into any of your own hype. I keep using the word HUBRIS:
Hubris ( /ˈhjuːbrɪs/), also hybris, from ancient Greek ὕβρις, means extreme pride or arrogance. Hubris often indicates a loss of contact with reality and an overestimation of one's own competence or capabilities, especially when the person exhibiting it is in a position of power.
The adjectival form of hubris is "hubristic".
I've enjoyed the Rex show but think he really doesn't have what it takes, in the end, to be a Mike McCarthy-type of coach.
