The 4th Quarter

I've been recently wondering if always having to win the game in the 4th quarter makes you stronger or weaker. When you have to come from behind and fight for your survival, does it give you mental toughness or does it just drain you, emotionally? What happens when you finally lose, is it just another loss, or is it the proverbial straw that breaks the camel's back? How much can you take when it is always on the line? Interesting questions, no answers. Keep coming back for updates.

I think it depends. Sometimes a loss is a wake-up call and forces one to reassess what is going on and make true improvement. Winning in the 4th quarter week to week speaks of inconsistent performance in my opinion. If you play like it was always a single-quarter game, how ofter would you win? I think in the long run, the guys that win in the end are the ones that win most quarters they compete in.
