I doubt if we would have capitulated as meekly as the Giants.Can’t help but think it is blessing in disguise we weren’t there yesterday. We aren’t at Tigers GF level just yet. Most likely would have been pantsed yesterday, would have been just a tad too soon. Timing is perfect next year.

We consistently showed great steel in games when we were under the hammer, more so as the season went on.
Even in the loss to the Tigers in the QF, we played the game out to the death. That loss wasn't nearly as bad as what it appeared on paper. We also gave a very good account of ourselves against them the previous week on their MCG fortress.
It's purely hypothetical what we would have done yesterday but I don't agree that it's ever too soon to play in a GF.
Bolters have won before. Bombers 1993 and Bulldogs 2016 are two that come to mind. Also Hawks 2008 caused a massive upset and "before their time" according to some.
We have a mountain of hard work ahead next year just to get back to the finals. It's never a linear progression that can be taken for granted. Timing will omly be perfect if we go at least one step further in 2020.
