I might just be a bear stuffed with cotton and I know I am cuter than the average bear, but let me tell ya I know a ittle something about holding my own, being there when I am needed and I do my part for my team at the Touchdown Club...and tonight on the last game of the season I felt like the boys had the wind completely knocked out of em... I am not sure what happened exactly, but I felt we just fell short as a team. Yes individuals efforts are fun to watch and we had some great ones tonight and we have had some great individual achievements this season we know who those guys are. But where was the rest of the team tonight? Everything seemed like it was a grind and hard to do...and not much about tonight was what we fans have grown to look forward to, whether we win or lose we know when the band of brothers show up it's a good time for all. I know it's hard to take a loss on the last game of the season.
But to me it's harder knowing not everyone gave 100%...Where were the solid wrap em up tackles, where was the blocking, the accuracy and where was the teamwork- the machine that was tuned by our coaches and held up by self starting individuals who know better to think you can't get it done if you have to go it alone. Let tonight's loss be a reason to make every game matter more, than the last.
Guy's at the very least you owe it to yourself to show up- not just physically, but mentally and with no distractions, you have to have the whole package ready to go at game time, everyone on the same plan to get into the game and make smart plays. And when everyone does, that's what makes a team. And remember no matter what game you are playing,
"Winnings not everything, but wanting to win is"
