For all the times Ryan was pressured, he played a nearly flawless game. No picks? That was impressive. I couldn't go to the Dome because my dad, who's going to have knee surgery next week, couldn't walk up. Wish I could've been there to see the post game celebrations. We went to Tully's instead and had a blast. Much like the Dome, the place cleared out at 29 - 14, but we stuck it out. A guy who left the Dome came running in to catch the last 5 minutes and OT. I bet he's kicking himself.
You have to be impressed with the mindset of this team not to hang their heads. Wake came out and punched them in the mouth, but the Orange kept coming. I watched the post game presser and was totally impressed with the players and how they handled themselves during questioning. They were complimenting their teammates every chance they could. And Ryan made a real key statement when he compared this season's team to the team two seasons ago. He stressed the comradery this team has and the respect and support for one another.
Yes this team looked both awful and grand on the same evening, but if they can play the rest of the season with the character they showed tonight, we could be bowling again...and then some.
