Having a losing mentality and losing are two different things.
The Huddle - "I'm so tired of this franchise having a losing mentality."
The Huddle - "Welp we can't make the playoffs. Let's lose out and hope one kid can make a difference instead of our current roster instilling confidence and a winning streak."
The Huddle - "Fire everyone."
The Huddle - "We won a game give the staff another year."
You can lose games, you can even lose more games than you win, and it doesn't make you a loser in terms of mentality.
We do have a losing culture/mentality because our guys don't know how to win. And when the front office continues to operate in the same fashion that has resulted in the same losing outcomes, then the only reason you are playing for is pride. We happen to have more pride than other losing teams, so we won at the end - when it didn't matter.
I said the thing about the pick tongue-in-cheek... Of course professionals are more times than not, going to play to win, as they should.
It's frustrating knowing their efforts are wasted by people and powers above them and we continue to do the same thing and follow the same patterns and will most likely get the same result - so jokingly, "why not play for a higher pick if it doesn't matter anyway?"

I want to wait and see how he does at the senior bowl. Dude hasn't played any elite pass rushers all season
I know most of you aren't as in to the draft as me this early on, but a prospect y'all will fall in love with by April is Eric Fisher. Probably one of the best left tackle prospects I've seen. Everything is there for him to elite, and has a lot more bulk to add to his already monster size frame.
Definitely my top prospect right now. I love Warmsck and I know he is a popular pick, but when it comes to the draft...LT > OG.
You draft tackles in the first and guards in the later rounds or free agency.
