This board is primed for a major meltdown when Troy Smith returns to being Troy Smith, not John Elway, as we saw last week.
He is simply not that good people, and we are simply not good enough to begin considering playoff talk. In fact, how about we hold off playoff talk until we win ONE road game.
I'm a little more open minded about Troy, but while I tend to agree with your other thoughts here, why bother to dampen the expectations of others? Let them find instant gratification and hope... however empty it may be.
MD is a realist and very grounded. That's expected and sometimes admired. Me? I am the crazy optimist always trying to find the good in a pile of crap--you know like fiber.
We have to continue winning in order for him to see the light otherwise in his eyes this is a flash in the pan with Troy.
I have always believed that life molds us in so many different ways when we pay attention and allow it, sometimes we don't have a choice in the matter.
Why can't Troy grow and mature while honing his skills? Why can't he be human and sometimes regress? Why can't we believe that Troy just may be able to pull this thing out and provide some daring consistency while doing it?
--Two games is not enough to showcase he's got what it takes?
This forum doesn't need Troy to fail to meltdown....
It does it on its own!
