What would it take for this to be a successful season?

Recommended Posts

After high expectations (or at least cautiously optimistic) coming in to the season, to our fall from grace at 0-3, what will this team have to do or show you for this season to be a success?

Rebound, make the playoffs, and win a game there.  Then Marvin can ride off into the sunset, if he chooses, as a hero.  he deserves that.

If we can get the oline going consistently by the end of the year then that would be a success to me

Best case scenario is 9-7, squeak into the playoffs, and then pull of an upset and get to the Divisional round.

More realistic scenario is 4-6 wins.

Worst case scenario is 2-3 wins.

That would be miraculous.  My hope in the o-line moving forward is the draft and maybe a little free agency.

LT and C in the draft, RG in free agency, Boling keeps his job, and resign Andre Smith for another year and replace him in 2019

Resounding success - they go on a tear, somehow make the playoffs and beat Pittsburgh 35-0 in the wildcard round, and somehow make it even further than that.

Season well done - Go a tear, make the playoffs.  Then whatever happens, happens.

Well there's always next year - the young guys step up, and they finish the season on a positive note, winning 7-8 games.  Gives some hope toward the future.

Bad - They are up and down all year, finish with 5-6 wins

Terrible - They can only beat the Browns and finish with 2 wins.

It worries me 8-8 will be good enough to bring Marvin back. The schedule definitely lends itself to it

I think the only thing that keeps Marvin is a Super Bowl appearance.  If he wins, he's done, if he isn't close, he's done.  And I mean his tired old man self, not the organization.  The won't fire him ever.

Agreed.  I kind of see him hanging it up after this year unless there's some sort of wacky scenario end of year where he feels like he has unfinished business.  I don't anticipate that.

I disagree.  Mike Brown is still a loyal guy.  I think Marvin has to not only have a losing record, but also lose the team to get fired.

I don't think he'll get fired. I just think he'll "retire".

Definitely the right season to be bad and in need of a left tackle.
