Some have paralleled the Cardinals experience this year as holding hope for the Suns.  As you know, the Cardinals success this post-season followed a 7-47 loss to the Patriots just one month ago.  Therefore, losing by 30 in January need not have any bearing in April. 

While I don't weigh the Boston loss too heavily, it does shock me that it really means to me that the Suns are not contenders this year.    While I might have already known that intellectually, I haven't dealt with it emotionally.   It's like when you know your child is a serial killer, but haven't seen the dead bodies.  You can live in the dreamy haze of not knowing and hoping for the best.  You have no proof your child is a monster, and your child might be the most wonderful gift the planet has ever received.   But now I've seen the dead bodies.
