Not saying that playoff appearances are the indicator of a successful season.
I would say that it most certainly is; If they don't make it into the playoffs, there is ZERO chance of playing in the big game.
I believe that some major tweaking & tune-up is a must, I can also see where Pete isn't content with just sitting on his @ZZ either, thus the Firing of Schottenheimer, & the hiring of Waldron & Co.
As smart as some of the outsiders (including Cowherd) believe that they are, Pete has probably forgotten more about the intricacies of the game, than almost ALL of these yokels.
Quarterbacks are the field Generals, and as such, should have some input on how the battles should be drawn up, but it's NOT their job to replace the TEAMS Coaches, QB's getting older, slows the game, AND the feet down, but with more experiences in the trenches, it's imperative to speed up the decisions, & release....No Offensive line can hold up stellar Defenses indefinitely...Take what they'll give you, but for crying out loud, Get rid of the damned ball LIKE TOM BRADY DOES, and LIVE to make the next play.
There are a lot of things going on behind the scenes that we aren't privy to, we can only speculate.
Guys like Cowherd like to stir the pot, but aren't any more insightful than the rest of us, otherwise, they'd be........COACHES.
