I'm not worried. I'm numb.
I check thread titles because I don't want to read anything Redskins fans have to say. Nothing against the current crop, I'm sure, but the group
that came out of the woodwork (and then slunk away) in '05 made me realize I don't care about the opinions of people who aren't fans of
the same team that I am a fan of.
We finished w/5 victories - ranging from a nailbiter, to a historic streak unmatched since the mid twentieth century, to a WTF? performance
against a division opponent. Wilson keeps racking up awards and accolades, so I know we have now become, or are on the verge of becoming
THAT TEAM - the one that the fans of all 31 other teams hate to hear about when Sportscenter reaches the top of the hour. At the same
time, I keep looking back at Miami and think of what could have been, remembering my pure joy at the NFCCG. No one was going to come here
this year and beat us. NO ONE. One more friggin' defensive stop and my mood would be much different.
I'm in a place where my expectations for the season have been vastly exceeded but I WANT MORE, and I feel stupid or greedy for that
So please Aros, don't be worried that you are not worried because it is the confidence that you and other fans have about this game
that keep me pushing on through this season and the "coulda beens" towards what is still quite possible. It is the image of you and I sharing
a pregame beer in New Orleans in February that helps me forget Miami.
