When a team comes from behind to win or make a game competitive, certainly give it props for the effort. But, please, no more references to “they could have just given up” at some point. That’s the faintest of praise. For the pros, worst than an insult. Playing, even from behind, is their (obscenely well-compensated) job. Putting forth less than maximum effort – even with an imposing deficit — is fraudulent.
