We all put in so much time and emotion into this team for the sweet payoff.......the sweet payoff of winning a superbowl, it can only be the sweetest when you put your heart into it fully lot of us on this forum have done that for years.......but i'm not gonna lie, today hurts. I am trying not to think about it but it brings some tears to my eyes when I think about how close we were.
I feel for Frank Gore and Justin Smith. It hurts so much more because as we got down to the goal line I could sense the victory, it was going to happen we weren't going to be denied...
Our offensive line was BLASTING the ravens backwards we wanted it more, our run game was killing it.....I felt the elation of a sweet payoff entering my mind as we got down to the 7yd line and BOOM in a matter of 4 confusing plays at the goal line it was all over.
No, we didn't stay aggressive and let our O-Line continue to bully the ravens, instead we started backing up and pass protecting.It hurts....it hurts bad. The countless hours I've poured into this team hoping for the final sweet payoff of a superbowl victory, the special feeling that only true fandom can experience of winning...the feeling where you feel like you are part of the team, you feel like you won the championship born out of the countless hours of reading every beat writer article, watching every press conference video of every player/coach that is posted online....watching every game and then re-watching them during the week.
Those are the true fans, and for us the super bowl win will be that much sweeter, we have to suck it up today...as Jim would say SUCK IT UP and carry on, carry on to next year and do it all again w/ the hope of the sweet payoff
But today it hurts, i've been in tears 3-4x already when I allow my mind to focus and think about what just happened last night
