Pretty curious at how bad people want another Super Bowl. Obviously if we could take the Super Bowl we would, but how excited would you be? As much as I want to see us win I don't think I could ever get back to 2012 level of excitement.
That Super Bowl meant so much. 5 straight appearances along with 2 AFC Championships before we made the playoffs in 2012. Heartbreaker after heartbreaker in those 5 years. The loss of Art Modell. Ray retiring after the season and getting him his 2nd ring, getting Ed Reed his first. That 2012 year meant so much for this team.
A win this year wouldn't have even half the story lines. The only real thing we would get would be validation. Finally get some amount of respect from everyone. Personally, just making it back to the playoffs and getting one win would make me happy. As much as I want a Super Bowl, I don't want it nearly as bad as I did in 2012.
What do you think?
