Last year I was just really angry and upset; I kept going over the fumbles, the trip on AD, the broken up INTs. This year I'm just depressed...I'm able to forget about it for a moment or two but remember it again shortly thereafter.
Had we made the SB last year, I fully believe we'd have won. Of course, being this close, to come all the way back, and lose due to a combination of piss-poor, s**t ass playcalling (RUN THE f**kING BALL!!!!!!!!
) and missed calls by the refs really hurts. Every time I see a pic or a highlight or read an article, it hits me again.
I don't know how long this'll last...hopefully not too long...but I feel like I'm gonna keep remembering and agonizing over the what ifs when I know it's much more rational and healthy to just let go, as it's only a game played by people I'll likely never meet.
Other than the 87/88 Browns who lost on the Fumble and the Drive, I can't think of two worse consecutive playoff losses.
