At some point it goes away from, "it's just November", into the territory that we've lost 1/8th of our season in a row and we are now right at 1/5th of the way through our season with a whopping 7 points in the standings.
I know a lot of people who wanted nothing to do with Cole. I think at a certain point people just came to the conclusion we weren't about to make another move other than Cole, so it became a good signing because we got him "cheap."
