So I leave the other sunshine guys, like TKyss, here all alone without me giving them any support. That's what I feel guilty about.
Same here.
...well, except for the wife part. I'm single.
And I can understand the frustration that makes folks want to b!tch and vent. I really do. I even share that frustration. Especially when they're last second loses like the Jax game or the Jets game.
But I don't have to hear it.

Yeah, it's like the negativity sets up a feedback loop that just gets worse and worse and louder and louder with each iteration. If I take part in that or try to put some brakes on it when it's spiralling out of control, I just come away from the board with a negativity that infects the whole rest of my life.

I can't have that.

After a loss, I don't feel the need to dwell on it. I feel the need to shake it off and get positive for the next game.

I get frustrated as well. Right after the game, I'm steaming mad. If it's a home game, I've got about a 2 hour ride home to cool off, relax, & think about it.

Those last second losses are especially hard, but..... I've got a different perspective than most.

"Our offense didn't play 60 minutes"/"Our defense didn't play 60 minutes"

Well, neither did the Jets, or the Jags, or the Ravens. I think that means something, that we went toe-to-toe, down to the wire with teams like the Jets & Ravens.

We need to start winning those games. & I expect them to.

Now, I wouldn't have had one problem had McNair fired Kubiak at the end of the 2010 season. But now, I'm kind of glad he didn't.

This is only his second losing season.

The Saints went 7-9 in 2007, 8-8 in 2008, but there was no doubt in Benson's mind that they were on the right track & now he has a SuperBowl trophy.

& yes, I am saying the Texans success under Kubiak is relatively equal to the success Payton has had in Nawlins (minus the SuperBowl). I think we were that bad. I honestly don't believe any coach would have done significantly better (with this team) over the last 5 seasons.
