1 - Denial : We don't suck.. who do they think they are.. ? We are MUCH better than last year and have a better coach. Gabberts gonna prove them wrong. We went 3-1 in Preseason.. we will prove them all wrong.
2 - Anger : Gabbert is great ! He just has to have the time. Mike Lombardi can go fly a kite. Whats wrong with the media why are the always picking on us. Its early in the season with a new coach of course we will lose a few games at first. The media just needs to lay off..!
3 - Bargaining - If we can get to mid season with 2 -3 wins, the whole thing will turn around. It's what Mularkey did in Buffalo.. It can happen here too.. right.. ?
4 - Depression - Sweet baby Jesus.. we suck, we are snake bit, ever since 2000. We had our run in the early years, but that's it.. There is nothing this team can do right.
5 - Acceptance - OK, fine we suck. There is always next year.
Looking at Bright side - We have a new owner that let things ride for a year to evaluate everything. Hes a smart man, and a judicious man, so he will make it right and 2013 is the true beginning of a WHOLE NEW regime.
