    VanDerman on 610 reminded me this morning with, "A real fan hurts more with a team loss than they feel good with a team win" !!!!

    I've had teary losses, more than teary wins, so I guess I qualify as a real fan.:texflag:

    Sitting through every excruciating second of a 2-14 season is more than enough pain for this fan. I need some wins to remember what having a winning team even feels like.

    Well, I don't think we've had any teary wins yet, have we? Maybe the first one, but that's about it. The Indy win was nice but that just made us 5-10 with a game to go so I don't think that was anything to get teary about.

    The playoff clincher this year will probably be one.

    True, but those losses probably don't hurt as much as a costly mistake in the playoffs (like Romo's against Seattle). Who was the KC defender who got under Andre's skin when Andre threw the ball at him? Can't recall if Andre got thrown out, but he did get penalized. I think that was a blessing in disguise, like Orlovsky stepping out of bounds last year. We all laughed, but I think both players learned from those & that won't happen again. I want some wins, too & I think we'll get our share this year :texflag:
