That's what Bob thinks I'm sure.
I only remember once seeing a football team that could be successful while looking so bad at the same time and that was the Glanville/Pardee era Oilers. Stacked with talent and always coming up short in the important games. Always coming up short in the games that you would give anything to see them win in.
It just sucks all the give-a-damn out of your heart when they do this kind of thing and they do it so often that you never grow to trust them. You never really believe in them the way that Cowboys and Steelers fans in the 70's or 49er's fans in the 80's (or Patriots fans now) believe in their team. You always know that they're going to screw it up somehow or go on national television and become the laughing stock of the league when they get a chance to establish that they're legitimate. It's stomach churning. It's heart breaking. It's the Houston Texans. Even when they're winning regularly they can still manage to find a way to make you slightly embarrassed of them.
It's like poetry. That's perfectly worded. All of it.
