Let's say that next week we're up by six points against the Saints, it's fourth and goal with 7 seconds left and Drew Brees has the ball at our 8 yard line. You mean to tell me that there are people on this board that would be actively rooting for Brees to throw a TD? How is that possible? The look on Sean Payton's smug face as they kick the go ahead extra point would have me sick for a week.
I understand the desire to have a higher draft pick and more importantly, to be rid of Rivera and company, but I don't think I'm capable of rooting against my team. It's third and short and I'm at home hoping Stewart gets stuffed on the LOS. Not possible.
Now once we've lost the game and everything's over, I of course get to be in the position of looking at the silver linings, a higher draft pick, Rivera gone etc. But these are things that console me after a loss. Not something I'm considering during the game.
I don't mean to imply that those who prefer us lose out are bad fans. You're thinking about what benefits the team best long term. I get it. But as much as I want Rivera gone, what I wanted more was for Cam to come out in the second half today and brings up back for a victory. I want us to win.
