Yes you would rather win 4 or 5 games this year with Matt knowing him and Fox are gone. Messing up a top 3 pick and nothing 2 build on for next season.
My question 2 you is what is better for this team 4-12 or 5-11 under Matt where he is gone Fox is gone and we have maybe a top 10 pick a new coach and Jimmy has 3 games of exp. Or we go 1-15 maybe 3-13 with jimmy have a top 3 pick 2 help a new coach rebuild this team and jimmy has alot of game exp. Or we find out he's a bust and we use a top 3 pick and get us another QB.
You "know" Matt is gone just like so many "knew" last week that Jimmy was going to be the starter against the 49ers just like you "know" Jimmy is the future of the franchise.
You DON'T know wether Matt will or will not be here next year.
You DON'T know wether Jimmy will be here next year.
You list speculations as fact. You list forum mantra as fact. You list majority or general opinion as fact. None of those are FACTS.
And most of what many around here go around stating as facts, don't turn out to be so.
Oh and one more thing, on your backwards way of thinking that we should be throwing away the season with 11 games to play because it will be better for the team in the long run. Let me share with you a couple of other interesting facts:
The Lions, 49ers, Browns, and Bills have had TOP DRAFT picks for like the past decade. Do you see that bringing any of those teams success?
The Patriots and Colts have had bottom draft pics for decades and they CONTINUE to remain 2 of the dominant teams in this league. In fact it was their dominance that put them in such great position to trade for draft pics, or make great off-season acquisitions for PROVEN players that has kept them strong year after year.
What does that tell you?
