The stages pf Grief Kubler-Ross identified are: - Denial (this isn't happening to me!) - Anger (why is this happening to me?) - Bargaining (I promise I'll be a better person if...) - Depression (I don't care anymore) - Acceptance (I'm ready for whatever comes) So here I am on Wed... and I am actually starting to get excited for this coming Sundays game against Miami. Am I just in denial here? I am looking at everything that has happened in the past and I keep coming to the conclusion that this team has more talent than it ever has had, is the second youngest team in the league, has played the toughest schedule of anyone thus far, has played 2 good teams to the point of winning recently, and we still have 7 home games left and an easier schedule ahead of us. So which is it?? Denial for not accepting the reality of our 0-4 team and the meltdown of last week? Or acceptance of what has happened and ready for the tide to turn in our favor finally? And is it possible to experience multiple stages at once? Like when I realize every once in a while we Houston fans have the great Buffalo choke and now this game in our back pockets to keep forever. I do ask why? What did we do to deserve this? For my own sanity, I am going with Acceptance (meaning I am selling myself on a better future) There is just no way this young team with so many bright spots for the future doesnt continue to get better and eventually make us forget all of our sorrows. We are no Detroit. Right? .... RIGHT!?!?!?
