Heroes. There are heroes who emerge when you least expect them.
Heroes. You find yourself in a quandary and wish for them. At times you dream them up, and when desperate you pray for them even when prayer is anathema to you.
But they emerge. Heroes: RGIII on a bum knee, a rookie RB coming off two egregious fumbles in as many games who never gave up on himself and an unproven backup QB in a churning sea of uncertainty.
Heroes. A kicker who believes in himself as much as he believes in his team.
We're surrounded by heroes this season. I've needed a hero to lift this team from ashes for a very long time. And they have emerged.
The fans who complain and leave as unbelievers, however, do not believe in heroes and, therefore, eschew themselves as true fans. They've ultimately lost, empty shells, uncommitted. Lost. So, you losers need a hero more than I.
But you've already lost, because you don't believe . . . in heroes.
