Okay Hue, where in hell was your psyche in Miami? Never mind. What we care about now is where it is this week and next Sunday in Green Bay. You told the press today you weren't going to try and "Sugar Coat" the meltdown Sunday. I seriously doubt you, or even Cicero, Obama, Jerry Spence or Odysseus, could cloak the horror we fans were subjected to with bullshit rhetoric.
At this point, I'm taking consolation in our past, i.e. the 1976 Raiders. That team was destroyed by New England 48 -17 and went on to win the Super Bowl. There is proof that having a horrendously horrid game in all areas does not a season make or necessarily destroy a team's confidence ... Oakland went on to win their next 13 games in a row!
So, I'm not dejected now and will patiently and hopefully wait for Sunday.
Be Strong Hue and hold onto your Faith. I know this team is as strong or as weak as you are. So please be your best self: confident, swaggering, tough, glib, and smart. Never doubt yourself again as you did in Miami and took the entire team with you into the abyss. If you're a man of faith (like Tebow apparently is) then be a man of faith and never again allow the demon of fear and doubt to gain access to your thoughts, paralyze and derange you.
I believe in you still Hue. You're a good man who just needs to believe more in what you yourself say.
