Come on AP, don't be an apologist for this team, you are better than that. They are in the west and they are not good enough. My guess is if they were in the east, they would find ways to lose games in that conference as well. This organization is mentally soft from the very top on down. No accountability. When it matters most, this team always plays their worst. Losers lose, no matter where they compete. This team should have been blown up after certain players quit on Hitchcock last year. Quitting is Never acceptable. Yet, Howson held no one accountable but Hitch. If you want to let Hitch go fine, but others needed to go as well. Howson held no one else accountable, and now you have mentally soft players who will fold when things matter most.

So they manage to hold off the fat lady from singing for a few days but we know it is coming.
They start each season with a 50%-50% to get in playoffs.They are 1 for 10 in ten trys.Or flip coin 10 times see if you get nine "tails"? Very hard to do.But the Bluejackets seam to be able to do it every year.
