Ok, I must admit I was less than pleased (ok, I was f---ng pissed) during the Crew-Quakes match because I knew that was winnable. But I moved on. This is my team---I will support it win or lose. But here we are on the what, 7th week of the season? And our points are looking really slim. Right now, we aren't making the playoffs. But is it really too much to ask? Are we being too optimistic? Optimistic that we are good enough to make the playoffs on our first year back? Afterall, The Fire did it, didn't they? Are we being to harsh on our team, setting up very high expectations? Are we still in 2003 and 2005 championship mode? Rome wasn't built in a day. I keep reminding myself. So, really, are we being to harsh? If we are, are we too harsh only because we know we can do more?
