No doubt about it, we should now tank for a good draft pick.

Where is the pride in tanking the season? These guys are grown men and I'm sure they would prefer to win every game here on out. If there are any players, or coaches who have that mentality of tanking the season on a position in the dragt, I don't want them on this team

Tank? If this is us trying, I don't think I could stomach tanking.

To be clear, nobody ever actually does this.

They'd be endangering their jobs if they did.

Tanking the season will only make it harder for our young players to learn. No thanks.

Right, because we saw how well "finishing strong" last season carried over into this season. Last year people said the same exact thing you said and I jumped on the "better to finish strong than get a good draft position" bandwagon because I was convinced it would carry over this season.. But as the saying goes. Fool me once shame on me, fool me twice cant get fooled again.

I can't think of a player we could draft that would outweigh the mental costs of tanking the remainder of a season.

Our utter failure this season has a lot more to do with our coaching staff than our players themselves. Whenever this many pieces of a team regress it starts higher up the chain.

It remains true that the players need to go out there and bust ass - win or lose. Taking the rest of the season off would be foolish.

You think it's bad with bad coaches and players that are trying try bad coaching AND players who suddenly aren't even attempting to give a fug.

Im just saying that we all know we are going to have a losing record, I say just lose a lot so we can atleast have a fun and intresting off season come draft time. What could be more fun than a brand new GM, coaching staff and a top 3 pick?

I'm guessing if you asked the incoming GM / coach whether they would prefer to have a few spots lower in the draft or an existing team full of players who have to be brought out of a losing culture that was made even worse by throwing half a season they would take the lower pick every time.

Throwing seasons for draft picks happens in video games and movies. There are so many reasons it's a bad idea in real life.

this team indeed is lacking talent, Mainly at WR and DB whoever doesn't see that is blind.

I vote for high draft pick. I want a bad ass safety or reciever
