Rick Gosselin notes that fans always overreact to the first game of the season.
The opening weekend of every NFL season amuses me.
Half the teams win, half lose. The fans of the 16 losers immediately shift into panic mode — and the fans of the 16 winners border on overconfidence. There doesn’t seem to be any middle ground. No moral victories for the losers, and no tempering of optimism for the winners.
Certainly true. Indeed, I was hopping mad by the 3rd quarter of the Cowboys-Jags game as the former squandered a 10-0 lead and made one boneheaded mistake after another. The team has a lot of talent, though, and were on the road against a playoff team. One suspects they won’t go 0-16.
