in a strange way, I was more emotionally invested when we were a .500 team. Watching the Bills dismantle the Titans last night was a beautiful experience but winning in dominating fashion is taking some getting used to.
I vividly remember the decade of fail Bills choking away many close ones in the final minutes like the Monday Nighter vs Dallas years ago. In any close game from the Mike Mularkey to Rex Ryan era, when you got to the 4th quarter there was this sinking feeling of dread where you just knew we would choke it away. It is those kinds of feelings that are most deeply rooted for me as a Bills fan.
Now we are being rewarded for our faithfulness and are the best team in the league. That's a lot of emotional upheaval from era to era but enjoying the good times is an essential part of that as well.
