That has as much to do with timing and the rest of the division as anything. It just so happens we had some change over in staff and roster that coincided with the other 3 teams in our division being stronger overall than those 3 teams have ever been at the same time.
The Packers were 8-8
and the Lions were 4-11-1.
The Bears were 10-6.
That is 22 wins,25 losses and a tie.
Last year the Pack were 15-1,
That is 32 wins and 15 losses.
It would stand to figure we would have a lower number of division victories considering that.
It also stands to figure that if they had lost to us twice the Lions would have been 8-8, the Bears 6-8 & the Packers 13-3.
The changeover in staff should have made us stronger, not weaker. Frazier was made HC in November of 2010, so he had more time than the few that were brought on board during the offseason,
I continue to believe though, that we still have a lot of incompetent coaches on the staff left over from the Childress regime.
