All this overreaction can get into your head, man. For example, I’ve been watching the Bengals for the last two months and thinking, “What if they really are the best team in the league and most people just haven’t realized it yet?” and wonder if I’m overreacting.
I’m starting to think that I wasn’t.
In the press box at Arrowhead Stadium on Saturday after Patrick Mahomes sprained his ankle, someone sitting next to me said out loud that the Chiefs couldn’t win the game if he didn’t come back 100 percent. I thought it was an overreaction. And it was.
In the lead-up to Saturday’s game between the Giants and the Eagles, it began to occur to me that a shoulder injury to Jalen Hurts could equalize and give the Giants a chance.
Which was a severe overreaction.
So yes. By this point in the season, on Sunday nights, I’m pretty much overreacting. So just because the NFL season has reached the final four doesn’t mean it’s time to stop. On the contrary, in fact. We are hereby presenting the divisional issue of Overreactions.
