Eventually your team will get better (happens every time) and you'll be a better player because you were improving your game all this time.
I completely agree here. I'm on a team in a similar situation: plenty of talent but we can't seem to get the W. I play as hard as I can, contribute as best I can and look at it as a way to improve as a player. Plus the guys on the team are great, so I get a lot of enjoyment out of their company.

And be sure to think positively going in to each game, too. Let the other team find ways to beat you; don't do it for them before the game even begins.
