    I've always wondered, do the players, coaches and FO really understand what the team means to its die hard fans?

    We have many here, including myself, that have a special place in their heart for this team. We don't just watch on Sundays, we are here year round, we study players before the draft, we have guys who understand the Cap better than some guys in the league I believe. We watch the combine, we talk free agency.

    When this team loses, we aren't just "oh well, get them next week", we are pissed off, it ruins our day, our week. We get happy, sad, and angry every week for those 16 weeks, during the playoffs, well found it's been a while, but that's when the heart attacks come lol. Anyway, my point is this, this team means the absolute world to so many of us, it often seems that we care more than some players and coaches.

    Do you feel that players and coaches are just good at setting aside the emotion? Does it often come out in the locker room? And as I asked, do the fans truly matter? I know some care more than others, but in your experience, after a loss, you feel bad for yourself and your teammates....does anyone feel bad for the fans?
