Nobody is debating that comparison. This team is playing winning football in the first half in most of the games. The 72 team is a team of the ages.
For Debbie Downers like you, who just come out of the woodwork like a fattened termite to complain, this team has made some progress. Whether the current staff and some of it's players are holding the team back is the discussion that has merit. Frankly I point to the GM. He is the limiting factor in this team rise. The coaches need to do a better job too. The way we collapse in the 2nd half is indicative of coaching. IMHO.
Since the team and the coaches are built by the GM, he is the problem.
So, does 15 years of mediocrity equal bad team? You're damn right it does.
I agree with you that Jeff Ireland's tenure as GM is currently responsible for sustaining the mediocrity. Unfortunately, I have seen nothing from Steven Ross to make me believe he sees the problem. And until he understands the problem we are doomed to years and year of continued maddening mediocrity. God save us from this disaster. God save Ryan Tannehill, Cameron Wake and Paul Solai from the wasted careers that Zach Thomas and Jason Taylor were force to endure.
In our first 3 game wins it seems it was the opposite we were a 2nd half team when we out scored our opponent.
