Currently they are 4-10. They most recently lost to the Arizona Cardinals, 38-10 ARI

Nick Fairly is having a great season. Suh, though not recording the stats, is still a force to deal with. CJ is having a great season. Stafford.... eh...

If you were the man in charge, are you happy with the development of your team?

If so, why?

If not, what would you do to fix it?
I think they play dumb like a young team with no composure which they basically are. I think that they've made a lot of stupid mistakes this year and left more than a few wins on the field. They have reached the stage where they are basically a big pile of talent with no focus or ability to withstand adversity. Schwartz is their Jerry Glanville. He'll be there a little longer and he'll eventually leave town hated for all his faults. He'll teach them to win but they'll always be a bit fragile and easily knocked out of their game under him. They need a different kind of coach and another year or two of experience to reach consistent success.
