If we had lost just because of our poor redzone performance, I could live with that. If we had lost because we had played our asses off for four quarters and a good team just managed to beat us, I could live with that. If we had lost because of poor coaching, or poor decisions, I could live with that. But we lost because we gave up, and that the Grid cannot abide. We gave up..pure and simple. Our defense lacked passion, our offense lacked passion. You could see it written on their faces... there was no adrenaline, there was no anger... there was nothing but a calm and almost lethargic acceptance of inevitable defeat. The final possession by our offense was an embarrassment. Two and a half minutes to play and our offense was out there discussing plays like it was the first practice of preseason. No one rushed to the huddle, no one clapped their hands, or slapped their helmets.. they just limped out there and took their medicine. They were defeated before they were actually defeated, and that is the worst possible way they could have approached a tough game. You could see it written on their faces too. They were embarrassed for themselves at the end of the game. They knew that they had not given 100%.. they knew that they had let the game slip away..they knew that they had lain down and taken defeat. I was embarrassed for them, and for myself as a fan. This team will not go anywhere this year. And its not because of a lack of talent, or a lack of coaching, or a tough schedule, or injuries. It will be because they did not WANT to go anywhere this year. Gerald ford. Whether you think you can, or you think you cant, you are right. Well we think we cant, and we are most definitely right. Disgraceful.
