Savages used to be scared and respectful of the sun, until science came along and explained it. Very similar.
Also, there's the knowledge that despite what happens on Sundays, this team's a timebomb who'll eventually slay their opponents, at will. Unlike Seahawks teams of the past, where it's a question of "if"...this team's dominance is only a question of "when".
Great post. And that first line is signature material. Well said.
I think it's due to the sleepy offense a little. Just think, the most exciting aspect of football (passing offense) is what we are worst at. We also make other teams passing offenses very bad, without getting many INT's. Makes our game's pretty boring.
That's a good theory.
My theory is that we've played 7 games, and 6 of them have been very close. That's a lot of stressful football. High stress over a long period of time tends to break people's spirits a bit. I think my "sleepy" feeling right now is a sub-conscious defense mechanism to counter all the stressful football we've seen this year.
Take a nap, Kip. You sound overworked.
