In full 2010 tank mode.

Jacksonville, KC, and Carolina, all in the running for the first pick. Both of those teams would waste it on bummy Matt Barkley (he sucks, I saw him in person, he sucks). We could trade down, and build our secondary and o-line. The sad thing is, he don't even have to "tank". We suck lol.

I agree on Barkley. That dude screams bust. He looks like Jimmy Clausen version 2.0. He just does not have an NFL arm.

If we do end up with #1, I would love to trade with the #3 or #2 spot and use what we get from them to trade back up into the 1st again.

But I think we have a few wins left that will put us out of the running for the top pick.

It's too bad the Panthers didn't tank last year too and get the #1 overall pick and select Andrew Luck and trade Cam Newton for 5 first round picks and pick all the good players in the first round. That would have been sweet.

If the big cat wanted a tanked season he would have fired most of the coaching staff together with Hurney. Coaches fighting for thier jobs will not tank and we are good enough to be in every game left due to weak schedule.

Besides tanking are for losers. And if teams starts to do it on purpose and obvious they will most likely be punished.

We still have a win against cheifs and against raiders at the very least. I could see us winning in San Diego in surprising fashion as well. And the Eagles are very beatable right now.

No matter, I just don't see us in the running for #1 pick by the end of the season.

Anywhere in the top 5 is a good place to be to get a great player. There is a weird pressure when selecting first to select certain positions, but after that it seems best player available is easier to pull off.

I don't want to lose another game, but given that they likely will lose quite a few more I think a 3,4, or 5th pick could land some much needed talent.

    • I wouldn't say he made him look bad, just expendable (and overpaid).
    • Good let them. Will just allow other good players to drop to us in round 2-4

    • And this is my problem.  Its not that he can or can't run from the shotgun. The problem is that he never has and you just don't know. Will he have the patience to wait beside the QB with the ball in his belly? And during that time the line is blocking and shifting in front of him. There is no definite "hole" to run to. After the QB finally leaves the ball to him, does he have the read-option vision to find that little crease in the line, plant his foot, and cut through it? Jonathan Stewart does, but Stew played in a spread, shotgun offense in college, so he already knew what he was doing. Can Fournette do that well? The answer at this point, since he's never been asked to, is "maybe". Do you spend the #8 overall pick rolling the dice on "maybe"? At a position that in general is the most short-lived in the NFL? Maybe DG and Rivera do exactly that.  If so, I can understand their gamble and would hope for the best. Fournette is a great talent.
