Well they are not doing awful, getting riders in good places on classifications but not really winning. They had Cancellara's multiple problems, and their spring campaign was obviously not going to work then because he was the only leader. Bennati has become famous for never winning etc. Horner's chances are sabotaged by the apparent depreciation of his TT skills. Jens could have won a stage, lost it in the sprint. Some of the youngsters seem to have problems adapting maybe (Sergent). Fuglsang crashed. And the rest are so GT-oriented (the brothers for example) that they are not a factor yet.
All in all they are far from the levels of fail of some other teams.
