The 1993 Bill Murray film "Groundhog Day" is a classic example of frustration to the nth degree. I love Murray and I like the premise, but the the first 85 minutes of the film where he relives each day over and over and over again starts to wear you down and you almost want to stop watching or fast forward to the good part where Murray's character finally gets it right and has the "perfect day"
To me MHR has become "Groundhog Day: Broncos Edition". Seemingly every fanpost is the same only different. The contributors all mean well and are trying to express their belief or angle as to how their idea is the correct one. Don't get me wrong everyone is right in their own mind, but collectively we are all saying the same thing over, and over and over again. It has become tiresome at best, and I am not innocent by any means contributing to the frustration.
I think what we really want and can agree upon is this whole rebuilding-best chance to win season needs to have some sort of closure. After we read Bena's take last week on the situation, it probably left many of you with the same feeling it did me. It was kinda like a punch to the stomach. I also thought that our old friend BFSD might actually foreseen this whole mess before any of us have, making 2011 kind of a waste. How dare EFX meander through the season treating it like some sort of extended preseason (but not admitting so). And how dare they not want to see what they have in young Tebow over the Vet Orton? We buy the tickets, we choose to watch and buy the team jerseys, we know everything, right? WRONG!
We really don't know jack squat what is happening at Dove Valley and we should try just to get used to that very fact. The men in blue and predominately orange are fighting for jobs not fighting for us. We CAN chose to still buy tix and jerseys and chatter with fellow MHR-ers during the in-game treads. I dont know about you but that is some pretty damn good fun, right?
What isn't fun is continually living "Groundhog day: Broncos Edition".
We want closure, we want our franchise QB. Do we have him or don't we? That is the question that is frustrating us the most, but the sooner we realize that we cant choose him, the better we all will get along. Right? Too bad we cant fast forward.....to the perfect day.
GO BRONCOS 15-1 'til we aint!
