I have a text thread with some buds that's several years long about the Hawks and Seattle sports. Often after wins I post a LOTR gif of Gandalf telling Pippen "There was never any hope, just a fool's hope".
And that's how I've felt this entire season. Of course I wanted to see a W today, but I knew even if it happened we'd get bounced by GB or NO in a heartbeat. No doubt. And, sorry to be Doug Peterson, but I play the long game. It does hurt what tiny draft capital we have.
Better to get called out and get it out of the way now instead of get our hopes up. Sorry, had to say it.
Anyone else feel this way?
