And then they rolled over at the end of the season against lesser opponents with so much on the line.
Yeah.... getting healthy at the end of the season wasn't going to help this team win at home. Unless the Bengals pulled one out of their butts & came to Reliant, we'd have got beat at home.
Playing well at the end of the season...... that's another myth. The Bengals won 5 of their last 6 but were 1 & done thanks to a poorly playing Texans team. The Ravens lost 3 of their last 4.
The important thing, is to know
that if you play the best game you've ever played in your life, you can get to the next level & trust that the guy next to you will play his absolute best.
That's why you see Shane Vareen & Steven "Who" Riddley play out of their minds in the play offs, Danny Moorhead.... JAG on any other team, just like the Patriots entire secondary... but they beat us.
Jacoby Jones is one play away from being the Super Bowl MVP (in my mind & for this argument), because he "stepped it up" That aging defense had one more game in them & they let it all hang out on the goal line.
Maybe it was because they were close for the last 4 years & they knew that however "good" they were those previous years, it wasn't good enough.
