I said before the season that I thought this team would win 6-8 games, with a bullseye on 7. I think they are on target for that. But, I also said, as did Hervoyel, that this was the first year that the expansion label needed to come off as far as excuses. They have been wildly inconsistent, and the trend of getting whalloped on the road is distressing. And, in that catagory, Carr is the leader. At home, he has looked downright great at times, but he has rarely looked great on the road. The team also does not seem to play with the same passion or intensity on the road as at home.
As long as they meet the criteria of imrovement in the W-L record, then the coaches deserve another year. But, I also sometimes wonder if a more fiery leader would help, especially in a hostile environment. There are all kinds of leadership styles, each with it's own positives and negatives. Capers has lots of positves with his style. Tom Landry didn't "get in anyone's grill" and still somehow managed to win consistently more and longer than any coach in history.
