"I think it's fair to say it's a failure because our goal is to be one of the top 12," he said. "There are bigger failures out there. There are teams that are a whole lot more disappointed. If we found ourselves at 3-13, like the Falcons, then I think they're sitting there thinking, 'We've got to make a lot of changes.' I really don't think that we do. If 8-8 is a failure, I hope it's a long time before I feel worse than this."
