If I was a Bronco about to play on Sunday, I would have this playing through my headphones on repeat all weekend. Eddie.Teach put up a commercial similar to this and it led me to this one. I thought it was especially applicable given we are once again the underdogs on Sunday. This is a comfortable position for us by now, and one that I quite frankly enjoy. I wanted to share this with you all, becuase it got me even more amped for this weekend's game. I wrote out what it said in case anyone can't watch the video for some reason: Whether or not you win this thing, you’ve got to decide how you’re going to walk out of here when it’s all said and done; because, the game is going to go on, and there is only one rule you’re going to need to know about: there are no second chances. There is only this moment and the next moment. Every one of those moments is a test that you get to take one time and only one time. So if you see an opening, tear into it. If you get a shot at victory make damn sure you take it. Seize that moment. That moment is a crossroads where everything you want will collide with everything standing in your way. You’ve got momentum at your back. Fear and doubt are thundering like a freight train straight at you, and all you’ve got, the only difference between making history and being history, the only thing - the ONLY thing - you can count on at any given moment is you. It’s you versus “them.” You versus “no.” You versus “can’t.” You versus next year, last year, statistics, excuses. It’s you versus history. It’s you versus “the odds.” It’s you versus second place. The clock is ticking. Let’s see what you’ve got.
