And we all know (okay, maybe not all of us) there's only one way out of a situation like that.
“Our backs are actually against the wall now, and we got to play that way," Blackburn said Wednesday. “We got to come out fighting, swinging, just like when you’re in a bar fight and your back is against the wall, there’s only one way to get to that door — swing your way out. That’s what you got to do."
