The last time we took this kind of beating in a Super Bowl was against the 49ers. It took 7 years and 2 head coaching changes to get back. To me, it doesn't matter what changes are made, the window closed last night.
This next season will show how mentally tough this team is.
If it all falls apart next year, I think I'll be one of the "blow it all up" voices. I'm an optimist by nature, so my hope and expectation is they'll come back ready for another run. But we'll see.
