This is what it feels like most of the time:
Year after year it's the same thing. You get your hopes up, you dream that this is your year, you clear your schedule for the first week of February just in case -- only to see your hopes dashed by the J-E-T-S-jetsjetsjets in week 15.
But there's always next year. As Tavarias Jackson came in to mop up for Brad in the third quarter, all I could think about was whether or not this could be the spark we need to put us over the top. Could 2007 be the year? Could Tavarias be the one to do what Tarkenton, Kramer, Moon, Cunningham, Culpepper, and Johnson could never do? Could I have witnessed the first TD pass in what will be a hall of fame career that is littered with passing records and Super Bowl rings?
Probably not. But that will be my outlook come September. As Scarlett O'Hara says, "After all, tomorrow is another day!"
Or should I finally just take the Rhett Butler approach and walk away?
