Listening to Jerry he sounds as optimistic as ever no amount of criticism gets him down at least not in front of a camera. The lowest I ever saw him was immediately after the the blowout loss to Green Bay in 2010 when he said he may have overestimated his players.
It's only time I can ever remember him looking humbled. It was one of the rare moments when he was real candid about his team. As long as fans keep filling up his stadium he won't be taking any drastic measures he's too stuck in his ways to change. No matter how bad the team gets I'm convinced he'll never hire a GM.
He thought about bringing in Dan Reeves a few years ago as a consultant but that never worked out. When his health starts failing he'll just turn over the team to Stephen. We just have to hope he doesn't have the ego Jerry has and will hire a GM and a competent head coach and allow them to do their jobs.
