I hate to be like Nostradamus to you all, but I think my post a few days ago was prophetic:
No offence to you Jshore, but I wish Camarillo was the team leader in there. That kid is sure handed, makes plays, definitely hustles, and I love watching his effort out there. I’m shocked we haven’t used him more, especially earlier in the season when our WR play was really struggling.
Back to the original poster NMVIke, I’m with you completely. I spend too much of the year looking forward to a few months worth of football, I’m not giving up yet.
We need to finish 6-3 or 7-2 to have a shot at the playoffs, which is definitely doable. This team has the talent, it just needs a REASON to make it happen. They are the joke of the league right now (excuse me, Mr Jones’ team has earned that right), and everyone is sick and tired of hearing about the purple. An easy second half schedule and a bunch of pissed off pro bowlers is all this team needs.
What the hell are all you guys going to do for the next two months anyway?
That was the type of win that can turn a team around. You know the players are feeling it after this one, and it may be an "us against the coach, the media, and the country" type of thing going on in the locker room. Our season "should have" been over in the 4th but it's not, that's a powerful feeling.
Offense, Defense, and Special Teams all redeemed themselves from earlier mistakes in the game and came through when it needed to happen. Gritty play by Harvin, Camarillo, AD, BB, and Favre showed everyone how much they want to win.
I may be an armchair psychologist, but when Favre was interviewed after the game, don't be surprised if those words and tears of "we've made mistakes, but we came through" wasn't just a recap of the game they just played, but of his own personal problems.
Redemption is strong, watch out Chicago.
