  • Which emotion...

    After this weeks amazing victory. It got me to thinking. Which feeling do you think lasts longer...the great feeling we all have this week, or that lousy feeling you get after lets say...the Eagles loss last year. Super Bowl would be a separate category because thats on a different level.
    I think that the sick feeling after a devastating loss lasts just a little bit longer. Thoughts?

    I am still po'd that Jay Feely missed three FGA's in Seattle a few years back..if that answers your question.

      A bad loss stays with me longer than a gratifying victory.

      I was sick after that Eagles loss last year. I knew, at the time, that it ruined our season irreparably and unrecoverably. It gave the media Vick-gasms and allowed them to extol the accolades of the most over-rated athlete in the history of professional sports.

      Worse, was the loss to the 49ers in '03. I didn't sleep for three days.

      I can't even imagine how Pats fans must feel.

        All those losses u mentioned still sting to some degree now..but also by the same token we still live by some of the great wins
        Football has been very, very good to us.
        After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
        But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

        # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

        1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
        2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
        3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
        4-New York Giants!!!
        5-NE
        Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

            That 2000 SB loss to the Ravens stuck in my gut until Eli took the knee in XLII.

            The 2008 Eagles playoff loss will make me sick for years to come.

            Hell I'm still pissed about Flipper Anderson.

              Flipper Anderson still gets to me too. I just think losses sting longer.

                  I am still pissed off that McNabb never got paid back for picking up our telephone on our sideline. Maybe I watch too much hockey.

                      Yes, the score for that, admittedly hilarious, jibe has yet to be settled.

                        I think the losses last longer because your mind plays the "what if" game over and over like a DVR. You don't have that with a win.
