I love my team. I really do. I'll scream at the top of my lungs until my vocal chords bleed and/or rupture for this team. I'm so happy that we're making progress and that we're in the playoffs. So happy.
But let's be honest here.
Is there anyone on these forums that thinks we're going to win this game against the Saints? I'm not saying is there anyone who thinks we HAVE A CHANCE to win. Because even I think we have a chance to win it. But if you held a gun to my head and made me search the deepest parts of my soul and made me answer honestly, I'd say no. I in no way shape or form believe we can beat the Saints in the Superdome. At Ford Field? ....I think we give 'em a run for their money, but still lose. I just don't see how we're going to do it.
And I feel like an asshole because of it. I feel like I should put all of my faith into the team, but I can't. It'd be like having 5 guys with guns pointed at me from 5 feet away, and me armed with a butter knife, then saying 'Yeah, I'm getting out of this alive'. I dunno. I don't know if I'm depressed or jaded or what's up. But I truly don't see how we're not going to be one and done in the playoffs.
I'll stop being a debbie downer now I guess.
