Can You Feel It? The Worm Is About To Turn

There have been sporadic moments of glee and feelings that we are respectable, but let's face it. For the last 7 years  we were at best , having a good day against a superior opponent. The Mangini victory in New England  comes to mind. It isn't that we have been bad over those years (maybe 1 year in there). I t is just that the evil hoodie was better at doing what he does than we were.  We had a franchise tying 11 wins last season and we played New England even.  That is a damn good year. It was, however, only good for  a 2nd place divisional finish.  I have been a big proponent of Rex and Tanny. 26-14 including 4 playoff wins is no joke. Watching and playing sports, it seems that often teams have to learn how to win, then take their lumps, then overcome and become champions. For whatever reason the Pistons overcoming the Celtics, then the Bulls overcoming the Pistons comes to mind about 20 years ago. Making the playoffs was great. Learning just how hard it is to win three playoff games on the road in a row is either character building or back breaking. We now are no longer an upstart team.We have 3 years of winning with stability and a formula. We are by no means unstoppable. For a guy with my handle I seem to be drawn in to pointing out our slow safeties and lack of a pure pass rusher and that is on our stronger side of the ball. But Sunday night, we have a chance to do something we haven't done in a while. We have the chance to take control of our division and in front of a national audience show that last years playoff game against them was no fluke. To control our destiny of at least one home playoff game, or perhaps get a bye is serious NFL stuff. It would be a dethroning. There would still be a ton of work to do to secure the division. But can you feel it?  It is a  real opportunity to prove that the worm has indeed turned
