It's pretty obvious that we're tanking this season so we can pick first next year. But wait, there's more!
Then, when there isn't football due to the lockout in 2011, we'll once again be drafting first in the 2012 draft, because draft positions will default to 2010 records.
We get two high draft positions for the price of one sh*tty season. This lockout represents a once-in-a generation opportunity for our team; all we need to do is sacrifice 16 games.
Jerry Richardson is a genius.
That is all.
Well, if that's the case we'd all better hope for a rookie salary cap. Otherwise the Panthers will have 40% of their cap tied up in these first two number one picks.
