Sorry for the long wait, I am going to try something different for this blog. Will try to illustrate the past couple weeks in a poem setting.
These past few weeks have been a struggle to deal with
Anyone who thought losing was fun, was simply telling a myth
We been working real hard but just keep coming up short
But we are still holding our heads up high with all your support.
We got three more games left to make something happen
But we need to start winning, so losing streaks start snappin’
Rewind three weeks to when we played the Texans,
Most people just remember the fight between Dre and Finn.
Rusty was our QB and poised is what he showed
He made some mistakes, but stood in the pocket very bold
Defensively we had a hard time stopping #23
He ran in and out of holes and easy as can be
We made adjustments and found a way to limit their success
But At the end of the day, they ended up winning the contest
One week later we took on the vengeance-seeking Jaguar
Thinking we had them battered from the last meeting, but they didn’t fall for that allure.
They came in and hit us in the mouth
Mo Drew took the ball and just ran down South.
I am a fan since he was a Bruin at heart
But I was disgusted that he had to go tear us apart.
I am not trying to be funny, but we did slow them down too
Just was a little too late with our offense trying to pursue.
Another lesson was learned, we had to try and start fast
We have to give CJ the ball, but we must be able to pass
Then we get to last week and it was a game we needed to win
We almost got that game as it went down to the bitter end.
Must admit Peyton Manning is the best QB I have played
He knew exactly what to call out like playing charades
He got me a few times, but I learned to take away space
So he would have to complete the pass in a much tighter place
This lost was very depressing for it made six in the row
Seems like we are still waiting for the right seed so we can start to grow
We are not out of contention quite yet, but hopes are starting to fade
But all we can control is the way we play
So at this stage we are just looking for that first win
Then we can build from that victory and start a new trend
Marc Mariani has been a big spark that has not fizzled out
I think the whole league has started to figure out what this Montana kid is all about
Defensively we been on the field way too long these games
There is no one in particular to blame
Third downs been an Achilles heel and penalties as well
Lack of scoring touchdowns or our little turnover spell.
Plays have been made, but are overshadowed by the losses
But then I feel people aren’t playing well due to being cautious
So that is why we need to go out and just have some fun
Then there will be no regrets when it is all said and done.
Personally, I have been blessed beyond measure
Being a Titan has truly been a pleasure
I have been learning and growing every step of the way
I can see the experience already elevating my play
You guys expect more, but I demand even more
Even if that means I got to get an INT and score
Been enjoying the time out there on the battle field
Knowing every day I step out, someone possibly could be killed
So I take advantage of my time and give Him the glory
For Him being the author of this wonderful story
My Birthday just passed and I am finally 22
I am a young man in age, but a mindset that is overdue
Enjoyed my day, but wish I was with my fam
But understand my place and where I am
I will see them all soon and I can’t wait for that day
Run back in their arms as I start to pray
Thanking Him for all the blessings he has given me this year
That through Him, there is nothing I should ever fear!
So as I end this poem, I wish everyone a happy holiday
Enjoy Xmas and New years in a very special way
It is a time to be jolly and give to all
Not to be like the grinch and have everything fall
God Bless everyone and remember these words tough
"If better is possible, then good is not enough"
PS: When i went to Houston, i saw my Dad's step-sister and her daughter. So i guess you can say my Aunt and cousin. It was nice to finally meet them and it was a great time. Also went to the movies and saw The Next Three Days. I recommend it. It was a very good movie. I also checked out 127 hours. I also thought that was a good movie. I was not expecting it to have some comedy in it. I am bummed that college football is almost over and done. I would like to say congrats to all the award winners and I was happy Cam Newton won the Heisman because I felt he was the best college football player this year.
Take care and God Bless again! Enjoy the game this week. Houston Texans, round two.
