You're saying that season 3 hasn't been purposeful?
I can understand where someone would say that the season has lacked the propulsive forward momentum of the first two seasons, much of which was aided by the ticking-time-bomb aspect of Walt's cancer. The pace of season 3 has reflected Walt's headspace. The show is staying within itself. While not exactly taut, in no way is this season slack.
