That's football. That's what it boils down to. Once you get a talented team, once you've got good coaches.. this is what it comes down to.
You are absolutely right, & that is a very astute observation.
Remember when people were calling the Texans "soft" even though we had the best offensive line in the league & one of the more physical defenses? This is what they were talking about.
The Texans were soft & against Greenbay & New England, they showed they are still soft in comparison.
We didn't even put up a fight. We went fetal (figuratively of course). That's got to change.
Those guys that want Cowher for head-coach, that is what they are wanting the team to adopt from their coach. That's what the Jets got from Ryan, that's what the 49ers get from Harbaugh. The Jets have showed that they're just punks. Found a bigger bully & laid down.... but, the point is the same.
Right now, we punk the little kids. The freshmen. We run & hide when the Seniors show up. We need to (figuratively) put those lettermans back on & give the Patriots the double 1 finger salute.
