I'll gladly eat my words tomorrow night, but what happened last night was disgusting and it leads me to believe they lack the heart and guts necessary to get out of this round. This was not just one loss in the playoffs. To dismiss it it as such is absurd.
It was a bad loss, and there's a lot to learn from it but at the end of the day, whether you lose 5-0 or 1-0 or have a collapse like we did, the series is still only 1-0. A loss is a loss is a loss. You have to be able to put it behind you, but learn from it, and move on.
