Mean (average wins): 8.4 less than half of a game above .500
Median: 8 wins.
Mode (most common records): two each for 610 and 88.
This has been an average team, and this season is trending toward 88 or worse. It isn't about making the divisional playoffs for me. A successful team should be above average, or I don't understand how "successful" is being used. All of the win/loss stats point to just average and usually missing the playoffs. That is not a successful regime, even though they had a very successful season last year.

I like this exercise. For perspective, over the same period of time:
Pats:
Mean: 12.6 wins
Median: 12 wins
Mode: 12 wins
Colts:
Mean: 10.6 wins
Median: 12 wins
Mods: 12 wins
Packers:
Mean: 10.6 wins
Median: 11 wins
Mode: 11 wins
Ravens:
Mean: 10.3 wins
Median: 11 wins
Mode: 12 wins
Steelers:
Mean: 10.1 wins
Median: 10 wins
Mode: 12 wins
Giants:
Mean: 9.4 wins
Median: 9 wins
Mode: 8, 9, 10 wins (2 each)
