Welcome back to the Country Club. I'm surprised Edzo wasn't brought back.
Losing isn't the thing IMO... its the fashion in which we lost. We were obliterated by rivals. Rivals. The guys that long-time fans want you to focus on beating. You cannot lose in a non-competitive fashion to Philly and Boston in consecutive years and survive.
No message sent. Pats on the back abound...
