Honestly? A close loss.

I think a close loss would’ve been the difference between keeping this regime for 2 more years instead of 1.

so,.... ten wins is the success bar??

a devastating embarrassment in the first round of the playoffs negates that IMO... the record falsely indicates you belong there while the total organizational performance clearly shows you dont.

all honesty, from my heart... I would have preferred they miss the playoffs over what they did.
I don't know. I'd be okay with 10 wins next year at the moment if other things change. (specifically in game management)

Generally, I would prefer a close loss than a blowout.

Getting blown out in a PLAYOFF game is exponentially the worst.

Eh... I feel fine today. Deep down, most of us probably knew this was coming.

Either way it’s a loss.

That's how I feel. Yet, with the type of loss, maybe bigger changes will happen as a result.

I guess deep down I don't think that is happening either...

They won’t happen, which will make the loss probably more frustrating in retrospect than it actually is today.

I keep thinking that Vance ends up the sacrificial lamb for the late season collapse, but even there, deep down, I think they do nothing because Kliff is basically a dead man walking and what kind of good DC uproots their family to walk into an ongoing funeral?

if the game was close and the team played hard at least you feel like they belonged there, what they are doing is working, and with some adjustments you can do better next season.

but yesterday our team looked like a pop warner team that was trying their best to get their coaching staff fired.

they also open your eyes to bigger issues and if your team has foresight, what the future likely holds.
Id be okay with Vance getting fired. I'd be thrilled if they cleaned house if that means getting rid of Keim too.

I'll be ambivalent if we keep the status quo.
