Playoffs.  We've been here before.  We've been disappointed before.  With that being said, we seem to really have our proverbial poop in a group this year.  AND we are, as a team, pretty healthy.

Let's stay that way, too!

I'm getting some flack from co-workers saying that I'm being negative by saying that I am cautiously optimistic.

C'mon.  We've seen the history.

98- Falcons- Field goal mishap, '01- Giants- didn't even score, 09- Saints (cheating Saints)- interception.  And here we are with the Saints again, it's not the championship game, but it might as well be.

I'm afraid to even watch.  But I remain "cautiously optimistic".

SKOL!
