The answer is simply that no one cared about this season from the start, starting with ownership. Thats it, thats all.

I think plenty of good conversation can be made on who is the better player and such, but assuming any roster change would have made a lick of difference is laughable.

I agree. This team hardly looks like they're trying to play for pride. I hope the idea of throwing away this season pays off in the long run. :(

Yup, a team takes on the personality of it's coach and this team has the personality of a coach that's going to move on once he's finished up the last year of his contract.

I don't think they "do not care". But I do think that no one expected things to go the way they did.

You are right about one thing... it really doesn't have anything to do with who is the better player. It has everything to do with who is a good leader, which on offense at least, there really isn't one.

It's no surprise that the rookies have fallen one of two ways.

Some such as Hardy & Gettis have been driven and worked hard because they had something to prove. Young guys typicall keep trying no matter what, some also realise the opportunity staring them in the face, especially as late picks.

The project guys though are destined to fail in this environment. Edwards, LaFell, Clausen etc are crying out for someone to get them into a vet state of mind and how to progress as a pro.

If it was as bad as you say, then this youth movement will be pointless as we (The FO) are setting them up to fail. Even the very best rookie needs mentoring to some degree, hard work and determination can only go so far...

I've been calling this since last March. Looked at it from as many angles as I could think of. And I've maintained that it is the young players who will take the biggest hit from this, suffer the most, it is almost a lost year for them.

I think it is a sad state when people are willing to sacrifice a year of somebody else's career for money.

IMO a team more so takes on the personality of its owner. This one has.

Kinda feel sad for any player on this team who has to waste a year of their short career on this 2010 team.

fug that.

Say what you will about the FO shutting it down for the year in June but any player who takes the field on Sunday wearing an NFL uniform and half-asses has no one to blame for their loss.

All you have to do is look to the Bills to find a team that sucks but plays hard every down. If our guys were doing that and still losing, then I could feel sorry for them.

    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.  
    • Assholes should've never taken it away in the first place.  Me and a couple buddies had a hookup and were all hyped up and planned out going to it... then the NBA had to get all political and take it out on the city of Charlotte and the fans -- which made no fuging sense.  Seriously doubt we'll even get the chance to go again.
    • 6'6" 255.  He'll definitely have some good mentors with JP, CJ and the rest of the D-Line crew. 255 he'll need to put some weight on don't you think?
