Because, I can't take this. I didn't know what it would be like for a football team I root for to actually play in the NFC Championship game.
Now that I know what it's like, I am almost glad the Saints didn't win. Watching them in the Superbowl would have killed me.
That period right after Reggie's run and right before Drew's safety was crazy. I almost didn't make it.
Seriously, going from 3-13 to the NFC Championship game is too much, especially when we've had plenty of 3-13-like seasons and zero NFC-Championship-game-like seasons. It's like going from 0 to 1,000 mph in one second. The human body can't take those kinds of G-forces (I presume).
Generally, after a Saints season ends, I feel like something is missing, like something was left incomplete. Not this year.
I look foward to a rematch in the NFC Championship game next year. Only, let's do it indoors this time.
