    I saw a clip from that 94 AFC game where the Steelers had their last shot at winning. It was plain as day when Cowher said to O'Donnell... "Isn't This Fun?!!!?

    That makes me think of this whole season...
    What looked like a dismal season became a great season!!!
    Despite of ESPN and NFL's love for Dallas, New England, etc... we're the better team going into the post season!!!
    Rivers is the best in the business today!!!
    LT continues to make history!!!

    The list goes on but THIS IS FUN!!!!! :bolt: :bolt: :bolt:

    Perhaps some could use it as a life lesson. To sit back and enjoy the ride rather than complain incessantly about every little bump in the road?

    To perhaps hope for the best, rather than predict the worst?

    To maybe hold off on poison pen posts about players, posters, coaches and front office staff until the end of the season when the body of work is complete and able to be critiqued in a fair and complete light?

    Maybe? Perhaps? Anything? :icon_shrug:

    I will be able to relax when we win a SB. My father-in-law is a life long Lions fan. He may only have 2 years left to live. He will never see his team go to or win a SB. I don't want to be that dude.

    “It’s very important,” running back LaDainian Tomlinson said this week. “Because without it people are going to say, ‘What did they do? They won a lot of games. So what? They didn’t win the big one.’ … The legacy is we have to be able to win a championship.”


    So apparently, it is NOT just me that sees the importance of winning a Super Bowl!!!

    With that said... LT is absolutely right!!! I've ALWAYS hoped for the best. Though I'm not going to blindly jump up and down screaming "Yeah Team", "We're #1", ect. when we're not playing well.

    Maybe this will help... the process of it all does not get easier. So any weaknesses need to be corrected!!!

    For Example: If we jump out to a big lead on Sunday, we need to slam the door and end the game fast... as opposed to giving up 10-15 yards a play and allowing the Jets to get back into the game.
    ei: Eagles, Browns, Bengals.

    And it is OK for a fan to point that out!!! :yes:

    I don't need your help. I don't misunderstand you. You misunderstand yourself. Your constant, droning negativism reminds me of a spoiled child aching for attention in a room full of adults who are enjoying themselves. You will do anything to get attention, even if it means spoiling everyone else's fun.

    Apparently, you do. Not to mention, you and Conc lie. Look back on how this thread took a turn and YOUR contribution to make it happen.

    You both b*tch and wine when it's there, but when it's gone... you want it back!!! :yes:
    This thread is evidence of that... no point denying it!


    Anyway... I don't want to talk about this. Why don't you just PM somebody who shares your interest.

    You don't get the ridiculous irony of you of all people, after spending weeks mocking everyone else for enjoying the ride and having fun, starting a thread titled "Isn't this fun?" I know you aren't that stupid. This is just one more calculated ploy for attention. I don't believe for a second that you were sincere when you started this thread.

    Strange as it seems, I have to have B4L's back here. He started a thread with no negativism whatsoever. :tup:

    OTHER people threw a wrench into this thread, not B4L.

    Agree....I have no problem with the way this thread was started...I would think we can all let go of whatever past petty disagreements we may have had and get on the same team for the home stretch. We are all Chargers fans after all (I think)....and we are 13-3 and about to try to take the next step. If we are arguing with anyone at this point, it should be with Jets fans.

    OK guys, play nice now.:tounge::nana_love:

    As someone who's followed the team for 40 years, I side with the 'cautious optimists'. We've fielded some great teams over those years, yet been disappointed so many times that no one should blame ANYBODY for being a wee bit skeptical.

    OTOH, this season has felt different ever since.......oh, well, about that seventh or eighth consecutive win. We're doing everything that championship teams do---making the plays when it really counts, not letting up, and pulling victories from the jaws of defeat instead of the other way around. These guys are HUNGRY for it, in a way that no past Chargers team ever has been, and that's what just might give us the margin of victory in the playoffs.:tup:

    A gentleman of my long acquaintance has this to say about that. There was a challenge here, too.

    WESTMORELAND. O that we now had here
    But one ten thousand of those men in England
    That do no work to-day!

    KING. What's he that wishes so?
    My cousin Westmoreland? No, my fair cousin;
    If we are mark'd to die, we are enow
    To do our country loss; and if to live,
    The fewer men, the greater share of honour.
    God's will! I pray thee, wish not one man more.
    By Jove, I am not covetous for gold,
    Nor care I who doth feed upon my cost;
    It yearns me not if men my garments wear;
    Such outward things dwell not in my desires.
    But if it be a sin to covet honour,
    I am the most offending soul alive.
    No, faith, my coz, wish not a man from England.
    God's peace! I would not lose so great an honour
    As one man more methinks would share from me
    For the best hope I have. O, do not wish one more!
    Rather proclaim it, Westmoreland, through my host,
    That he which hath no stomach to this fight,
    Let him depart; his passport shall be made,
    And crowns for convoy put into his purse;
    We would not die in that man's company
    That fears his fellowship to die with us.
    This day is call'd the feast of Crispian.
    He that outlives this day, and comes safe home,
    Will stand a tip-toe when this day is nam'd,
    And rouse him at the name of Crispian.
    He that shall live this day, and see old age,
    Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours,
    And say 'To-morrow is Saint Crispian.'
    Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars,
    And say 'These wounds I had on Crispian's day.'
    Old men forget; yet all shall be forgot,
    But he'll remember, with advantages,
    What feats he did that day. Then shall our names,
    Familiar in his mouth as household words-
    Harry the King, Bedford and Exeter,
    Warwick and Talbot, Salisbury and Gloucester-
    Be in their flowing cups freshly rememb'red.
    This story shall the good man teach his son;
    And Crispin Crispian shall ne'er go by,
    From this day to the ending of the world,
    But we in it shall be remembered-
    We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
    For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
    Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
    This day shall gentle his condition;
    And gentlemen in England now-a-bed
    Shall think themselves accurs'd they were not here,
    And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
    That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day.


    Keep the faith.

    I concur.

    B4L called into the podcast Thursday night, spoke his peace, and listened to what Loren & Ray had to say. Calling into the podcast always brings a moment of clarity. :yes:

    Then B4L started this thread. :icon_toast:

    I'm just going to sit back and let this team blow me away with their play. They have for 11 straight weeks. Let's see if they can make it 12. :bolt:

    WOW!!! It's good to see that some people get it!!! :tup:

    Sure I was critical of my team and will continue to be... BUT right now, I like our chances of winning it ALL!!!! :bolt:

    Anyone who says we looked good in the beginning (especially considering we were very lucky to get into the playoffs last season) doesn't know much about football.

    Those people are the ones who blindly jump up and down screaming "we're #1". Well I'm not into fictional novals!!!
