Expecting them to make the playoffs in their third year is just setting yourself up for disappointment.

They have only showed us that they are still in the building process.
They are playing like a 6-10 team, and we should expect (and appreciate) where we are at in our development cycle.
Next year is a different story...
So you base improvement solely on our record. We had a much tougher schedule last year with a boat load of players on ir and still managed to win 5 games. This year we added some free agents and some good draft picks and play a weaker schedule. So I don't see a better record this year necessarily showing improvement.
