So every bad game lets us fear that we will wake up and be brought back to earth with a bang.
It's even a self-amplifying process, because when you see how "unstable" we as fans react, wouldn't you think that the players have the exact same thoughts? And wouldn't this thinking even increase the fear to see "the old Isles" again? ;-)
Check out the post-games and Hammer intermission interview, all the players find is unacceptable and they will make the changes. We have seen that already this year. This is not the same team and I personally went in expecting an 8-10 finish but I think we could be 6-10 pending on how the streaks go and if Philly completely bombs out.
