It's been a rough go for the Philadelphia Flyers early into their 2013-14 campaign. They've gone through one coach already and the puck just doesn't seem to be bouncing their way at all. Fans don't really see a lot to believe in from this team and, in a somewhat brutally honest quote from Claude Giroux, the team itself doesn't seem to believe -- at least not fully.
Claude Giroux quoted from the Daily News:
"We need to stay positive," Giroux said yesterday. "We are a good team. When we start believing it, when we start playing like it, we'll be a dangerous team."
So, does that mean players in the Flyers' locker room are not believing right now?
"Maybe they believe it, but they don't believe it 100 percent," Giroux said. "I really believe that when we start believing that we're a good team, that's when we're going to start winning games. We're not convinced that we are right now.
Okay, so it's not as damning as you may think, but come on guys. If you don't believe in yourselves, what do you expect everyone else to think?
And one of my favorite Bob Dylan quotes just because:
"I don't believe in anything, no. Why should I believe in anything? I don't see anything to believe in."

BETHLEHEM, Pa. -- Karekin Brooks rushed for 268 yards with three touchdowns on 29 carries and Pennsylvania outlasted Lehigh 65-47 on Saturday in the 60th meeting between the defending champions of the Patriot and Ivy leagues.
Brooks became the 12th Quaker to rush for 200-plus yards in a game and moved into second on Penn's single-game rushing record, behind Terrance Stokes' 272 yards against Princeton in 1993. Brooks also threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to David Ryslik early in the fourth quarter, which made it 56-35.
Penn (2-0) scored consecutive touchdowns 1-minute, 9 seconds apart late in the second quarter to establish a two-touchdown lead it maintained during a second half that saw the teams trade scores on virtually every possession.
Will Fischer-Colbrie finished 13 of 20 for 235 yards and three touchdowns, connecting with Christian Pearson on a 43-yard scoring strike, Logan Sharp from 26 yards and Nicholas Bokun late in the fourth from 21 yards out.
Lehigh (0-4) was led by Brad Mayes, who went 26 of 40 for 444 yards with four touchdowns, but also suffered two interceptions.
