How about a bright spot today with the play of Tay Odoms!? To overcome an injury such as he has and to put forth quite the effort on the field today I found it to be a great 'lead by example' scenario for the rest of the team to bare witness. I was also thinking how during the last couple seasons his play could leave your stomach aching with concern with his difficulties holding onto or catching the ball but today I didn't feel that nervous sinking feeling in my stomach once. Experienced players are a novelty in all sports, of which this team is slowly growing up and no doubt we will be a stronger team next year. Go Blue, Keep The Faith!
