Monday after a loss. Raining again. Temperatures dropping. Game film reveals much upon which to improve. Back to the practice field. Got to get better.

What’s left to look forward to after a game the Cards should have won but lost? Not pretending to know the answers. We know how tough football can be. But there are four games remaining, opportunities to prove something.

As coaches like to remind us, the game of football is much like life in general: you get knocked down, you get back up, learn from mistakes, work on weaknesses, and set new goals.

If there’s anything the last loss and this crazy season has taught us it is that anyone can beat anyone. Teams with chips on their shoulders are surprising overconfident foes with some regularity this year. No one is even surprised when it happens.

We just want it to happen for us.
