I understand the excitement. I am thrilled with where we are at this season to this point. Our defense is playoff intensity.
The reason I say slow your roll is that when the playoffs come around great teams get better. Particularly on the defensive end. So what happens to our already weak offense when the clamp down happens in the ECF or even the semis?
We have a lot of maturation before we say we are contenders. Are we showing in the regular season that we can contend with championship caliber teams? Yes.
Is this any different than last year? No
Will the seasoning of the playoffs make us mentally stronger in April, May, and maybe June? We will see when we get there. But the way we are playing is no guarantee that we will raise the stakes when we face championship teams.
It is a long season. Case in point many reputable posters were selling Paul, Vogel, and the entire team.
Don't swing the pendulum so far. Or just ignore me and freak out if we don't win it all. Then want TPTB to trade everyone in the offseason.
