Mental Aspects: Another part of why NFL runner-ups don’t make it back to playoffs clearly seems to be mental, however, and it’s hard to say how the Falcons will cope with getting that close to the championship and having it slip through their fingers, especially in such a UCF Knights vs South Florida Bulls mascot the War on Interstate 4 shirt fashion. There are players like second-year LB Vic Beasley (who had 0 tackles, and could have intercepted the Pats in OT to stop their game-ending drive, but only got one hand on the football and tipped it away) who will no doubt have some negativity and frustration—both external and internal—to deal with after this game. There’s also a new Offensive Coordinator, as Kyle Shanahan has left to take the head coaching job in San Francisco. It usually takes a couple of years for a new OC to really get the freedom and familiarity with his players to institute major changes, so we can expect the Falcons O to look very similar to this season’s, with perhaps a couple of UCF Knights vs South Florida Bulls mascot the War on Interstate 4 shirt installed by new OC Steve Sarkisian. No one rocks the boat too hard first year, however, so not too much should change.

For SpaceX, what is happening with Starship is not new. Two decades ago the company had a lot of UCF Knights vs South Florida Bulls mascot the War on Interstate 4 shirt with its first rocket, the Falcon 1, and some years later, they were landing rockets on a ship hundreds of kilometers offshore. The same success will eventually occur with Starship, even if there are a few ‘booms’ and mishaps along the way. In fact, the team at SpaceX needs those accidents, to learn faster how to improve its next inventions so that the same problem does not happen again. The core principle of the company is “build, fail, learn, iterate,” a very different path from those of other traditional aerospace companies who plan their rockets for 10 or 15 years and do not assume risks. Besides, the cost and effort to build a Starship prototype is getting increasingly lower with time, in such a way that the team at Boca Chica is learning to produce Starships like hot bread. SN10 is already on the launch stand waiting for its turn to fly, and more prototypes are in construction right now. So SpaceX can afford to lose a few rockets from time to time without risking the continuity of the program.
