Its true. Last year, that hump completely destroyed us putting us in a hole that was way to deep to climb out of. This year we got rid of that other disadvantage named Gay and have lunged over that hump quite nicely. If we continue this play, beating lesser teams the way we played Washington, then it will be scary to see how we do going into the playoffs.
