The words "job well done" were only used in relation to specific events and later, to refer to the more recent past. No one ever intended for them to mean for his tenure.
You feel better, ergo, things are now different in reality. Got ya.
Were you unhappy with the way we got there this year? I mean, take out the fact that the reality is that we finished in mediocre position for a moment. Would you rather have limped all the way through the season and made a desperate run at the end or would you rather have overcome adversity from injuries and worked hard all the way through the season? That's all I mean by that. These aren't feelings, theyre the facts of the stories of the last two seasons.
It's called an analogy. Analogies are not about degrees of severity. They are about the relationship between two items.
Analogies require analogous situations.
