Of course it hurts, but this team doesn't give up. Those days are over, and the fanbase needs to understand this team doesn't fall into the same traps that old S.O.S. teams have fallen prey to in the past.
It doesn't matter the location of the game.
It doesn't matter what time the game is played.
It doesn't matter what color jersey they wear.
It doesn't matter what the score is after the 1st quarter.
It doesn't matter if a man goes down in a game. The responsibility falls on the next man in line to do his best, while the others on the field elevate their game to help fill the void.
That, is how Champions play the game. You meet the challenge head on and compete. You overcome.
That is the mentality that Pete is instilling in this team, and the fans as well.
