smells just as bad as every other attempts by WT. It’s beginning to look like another ploy, having run out of ideas, spin, rhetoric, even a word.
In other words, TREG is a hail mary pass, their last hurrah. It seems to be nothing more.
In anticipation of the Superbowl this Sunday, I can’t help but picture it all in football terms. WT’s down 56 to 0 (points or weeks, up to you). It’s fourth quarter, fourth down with 30 yards (or days to shipping, again up to you) with less than 10 seconds left on the clock. There’s no possibility of victory, only saving of face. Manning’s out with (yet another) injury, Osweiler’s choked under pressure. Running backs’ total yardage is in the negative. Wide receivers couldn’t catch a pass if you were to hand the ball to them. Thus their offense is shot, completely confused and in disarray. Their defense, tired and devoid of morale at this point, is practically walking in to the locker room. More than half the stadium’s gone home. The opposing team (us) is pumped up and angry. They know how this is going to end, but due to NFL rules, must play to the last second. It’s painfully tedious to have to go through the motion of formation, when we all know how badly this will end. Everyone from the team owners to the lowly towel boy and his dog knows that a hail mary is their only option.
At this point, you have to wonder how they painted themselves into this corner, how they wasted away all four, perfectly usable, quarters without scoring any frigging points.
They must know that there will be a mass exodus, on top of all the people that’s already left, if this hail mary fails. There won’t be anyone left to even throw rotten tomatoes or half-empty beer cans at them. In fact, it may be better if they just spiked the ball, admit defeat, and call it a day. Even just 12 seconds ago, it looked as if they may have a game plan (to at least get a field goal, not a touchdown) which got some people excited, but now it’s nigh impossible. A complete blowout is in the works here, folks.
