TD being sat for like the last 2 games. I kinda think that

I kind of agree.

What he has done this year has been nothing short of miraculous and he would never take himself out. Him taking the rest of this throw-away season off and resting that knee sounds like it would be beneficial, however none of us will really ever know. It may be possible that by him playing, the knee is continuing to get stronger.

If TD feels it is in his best interest for his future here to sit the remainder of the games, he's earned it. if he feels that he is playing no matter what; he's earned that as well.

Going into next season having figured out how to win a few in a row is MUCH more important to this team than moving up from the #5 to the #1 pick.

and it's much more important for the new regime to know who's going to fight when the obstacles in their way seem impossible and who's half-assing it. they also need to see who has the talent to keep around and who needs to be sent on their way.

this team may be going down, but it needs to go down swinging.

Honestly, I don't want them to tank the season. IF they keep loosing by 7 points or less it's ok. Better than being blown out. This season reminds me of the 1-15 season where games were close. But we have so much more potential than those 2 wins so far.

Current players don't care about draft order.

I hope the Saints have a win and get in scenario for week 17. Chances are such a game gets flexed to Sunday Night. In come the Panthers to crush the dream.

Need to see Cam progress and turn his numbers around... It would be nice to see some wins & end on a high note. This team isn't winning more than 4 total games I wouldn't worry

"Winners make commitments, Losers make excuses". There is no excuse to lose out just to get a draft pick. Just because you get a top 5 draft pick, doesn't automatically mean we hit the jackpot with a player at that spot. It's all about having pride for what you do. Do you really think these grown men on this roster wants to continue to lose just to get a top rookie to come in? I don't think so. We need to shed this loser mentality of the past. I wouldn't mind us getting some kind of momentum to bring into next season. I will be rooting for this team every sunday (monday next week) for us to win. Plus wouldn't you like to mess up playoff position/berths that other teams my have :)

Serisously people dont need to get but hurt when someone says we need to lose out to ensure good picks.

the simple point is that there is no way we go to the playoffs, if we win out, the most we get is some media coverage. big deal.

wost case, 5 of our best players get hurt severely and are out for part of next season. what happens is TD blows that knee out again, after we are 2-10.. what was the point? when we can save him for next year.

think about it a different way, it looks like the top WR will be a 2/3 pick this season. We can win out, and pick 12-15th and maybe get the 2nd or 3rd wr, OR we can have a number 1 QB throwing to a #1 WR. on top of that, a couple of really good o line guys are predicted to go early in the second. and the rookies are cheap.

and if you think we should go d line (not only are you wrong) but the best will still be a top 5 pick...

While it may not be in any induviuals best intereste as far as stats or performance bonuses go, it IS in the best interest of the team, both short and long term to lose out. thats just a fact.

We haven't been able to find a way to win when we're trying to win and you're suggesting that we now try to lose... Wow
