As I said on the show last night, this loss has really deflated me more so than even the Baltimore losses and I've finally figured it out. My confidence in this team took a severe blow. Prior to this game, I really felt like we could go on the road and win anywhere, anytime. Now I know we weren't exactly at full strength on either side of the ball, but as Tomlin says, "the standard is the standard."
Had we lost a hard fought 10-3 game or 20-17 game I think I'd still have good vibes going into the playoffs, but not now. Denver suddenly worries me and no, not because of Jesus, Jr., but because of our health and our poor play on the road. I need to see something out of this team in the next 2 weeks to restore not only my confidence, but theirs as well.
