This is one of those threads where I have to conclude either a) many posters are young or b) we now have a pathetic fan base that accepts mediocrity as the norm.
In the 70s it was Super Bowl or bust and expecting excellence. This was in the midst of a record 20 straight winning seasons
80s was same for half of it as we reached 3 NFC Champ. Games. 20 straight seasons ends. Heck, this expectation led to the firing of a legend.
90s it's still expecting excellence and SBs
Now...8-8 is a success and trying hard is what matters? We are so close is a mantra? Pathetic if you think 8-8 is ok. Pathetic as a fan base. I don't care about injuries, etc. All teams have them. Packers won a SB with a record number of them. The Skins lost their 2 most dominant defenders for the year and succeeded. Excuses. They didn't stop us from being in games.
You are the people that Jerry depends on....no sense of expectation and that will buy into anything.
