It's All Coming Back to Me Now

There were nights when the wind was so cold That my body froze in bed If I just listened to it Right outside the window.


There was 14 such nights during the 2012 season. There was nights of endless pleasure. There was the Cecil touchdown in Indy. The was the Blackmon HAM game. But most nights were miserable. We were aching with a desire to see a winner. We all wanted the dark ages to be over. We hashtagged FireGene like you read about. We longed for someone that could take us to the next level. We longed for relevance. We longed at times for Chips Kelly, Tom Gamble, and things had even gotten to the point were we wanted Gene gone and Mike Mularkey could stay. Think about that. We were in such depression that we thought that it might not have been Mularkey. But then, Gene was fired. Mike was fired. And:

I finished crying in the instant that you left
And I can't remember where or when or how
And I banished every memory you and I had ever made

We tracked Khan all over the country. We watched him fly from coast to coast several days in a row. And then there was the tweets. The tweets that announced that we had hired Dave Caldwell. And at his press conference we heard those magical words; #evenifhesreleased. We shouted. We screamed. We soiled our britches with ecstasy. We banged on our keyboards like this lakjlskdjalksjdlkajsldkaj because we couldnt properly put our feelings into words. Still cant. Still wont. And then we met our Gus. Yes, our Gus. He's ours. Not the Eagles. And then:

I just have to admit
That it's all coming back to me
When I touch you like this
And I hold you like that
It's so hard to believe but
It's all coming back to me
(It's all coming back, it's all coming back to me now)

The visions of playoff teams are coming back. The visions of owning the AFC South are back. The visions of being in a place of relevance are back. No tarp jokes. No Tebow jokes. Hopefully, no more Jagwhyers to LA mentions. So to Dave and Gus:

If I kiss you like this
And if you whisper like that
It was lost long ago
But it's all coming back to me
If you want me like this
And if you need me like that
It was dead long ago
But it's all coming back to me
It's so hard to resist
And it's all coming back to me
I can barely recall
But it's all coming back to me now
But it's all coming back

Close your eyes and press play. Think about where we have been and where we are going. Cause we are outchea, ya bish.
