Umm weren't you doing that when we had Clausen?
i didn't have to. i wanted to win, but i was also cheering on the other teams to win who were close to being worse than us, but there really wasn't anyone.
the best thing for the franchise may have been newton, but i would rather that we were never in a position to draft him in the first place. i would rather have been winning. i would rather have had a FO and a coaching staff that was able to make adjustments to not just the games they were playing, but to the league in general. i wish that they hadn't considered the passing game to be a fad that they were too cool to follow. i wish they hadn't been so stubborn and had improved the passing game and tried harder to find a replacement for jake and had done a better job of finding receivers. i wish that they had just done better about building the team to begin with instead being happy with being average.
every losing season we have puts a ring that much further away. and don't point at those teams who are able to turn things around quickly. it's rare.
i'm tired of this losing culture. i'm tired of "fans" who want to lose so they can move up a couple spots in the draft. it's pathetic.
losing teams lose and they are fine with it. winning teams never accept losing. they never allow it.
teams that are serious about wanting to be better never stop fighting.
the draft just isn't that important. one or two more early draft picks aren't going to make this team a perennial winner, but being ok with losing and continuing to do so will only breed more of the same.
