I really didn’t get that many tweets screaming “Super Bowl!” … Seems fans have let go of that dream, at least temporarily.
I asked Jarret Johnson (who played with the Ravens for nine seasons and knows a thing or two about toughness and consistency) what makes him think this team has what it takes to turn it around. He said this:
“Because I see the way these guys come to work everyday. I get here at 6:30 in the morning and I’m the 12th guy to show up. It’s unbelievable. These guys on this team love football, and we have a lot of talent, and when you have that combination, you got a good team. We just hit some circumstances the last two games. We had a team down, and we let circumstance and momentum get the better of us and we didn’t finish.”
You know what I love about the NFL? Anything can happen. There’s no saying that the Chargers can’t come back and win the next 10. There’s no reason fans should be optimistic it will happen. Root for your team and let the players prove it to you.
Success on the field trumps EVERYTHING.
Side note: I saw Kris Dielman at an event this week … He looks great. Said he’s spending a lot of time with this family, though he would rather be “cracking skulls” on the field. 🙂 I asked him if he watched Monday’s game, and he laughed and said of course, and that he screamed so hard at the TV that his wife had to leave the room.
You can take the player out of the NFL …
