Looking at the season as a whole

I tend to make snap decisions.  I see something I like, I buy it.  I put some thought into big purchases, but once the decision is made, I go for it.

My emotions this season have been all over the map.  I would have started Rosey some weeks, fired RS after week 4, and ordered a blitz on every play just to make up for the first half of the season, among other things.

If I was a rational observer and not a fan, however, I actually think this team is having a good season.  Not a good week 1-4, not a good game against Indy, but a good season. 

To defend this, take Jacksonville as an example.  Their season is done.  They have also stopped competing.  I have heard the argument that quitting would improve your draft.  I would have a hard time getting behind a team that felt this way.  I think our 2005 team quit for the last few weeks.  I went to the BE-SF game in Nashvegas that year, and they looked like they were playing to lose.  Finishing strong doesn't help THIS season, but it helps every player on the team prepare for NEXT season.

I don't want to follow a quitter, and I don't want Kubiak instilling a who-cares attitude in the players we'll have around next year.

I think a lot of our passing stats that carry us into the top 10 in the league are because of this attitude.  I heard early on that we get a lot of trash touchdowns.  I think that demonstrates from Kubiak on down to the players that this team never quits.  The other team quits, plays 3rd stringers, probably a good decision.  But our first stringers are out there fighting for every score for 60 mins every week, playoffs or not.

It makes me proud to be a Texan fan.
