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.
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.
