Big mistake if we win, as ive said in another thread. I have 0 confidence this team can make a deep playoff run, yes "anything can happen" but thats just like me goong to Vegas and saying "i know the odds are GREATLY stacked against me, anything can happen." Well ofcourse "anything CAN happen" but what are the actual odds it WILL actually happen?
Having said that, we stand more to gain from losing then winning. If we lose we A. Secure a top 10 (slight chance at the 8th pick) in the draft and B. We drop our hated NFCs rival the Falcns all the way to early-mid 20s in the draft.
If I truely believed we had a legit shot at a deep playoff run, I would be all for going all in. Im sorry, but in my opinion its not worth dropping that far in the draft for the "moral victory" of saying we made the playoffs. I would love for the Falcons to be the team we screw by dropping them so far in the draft while watching them be one and done in the playoffs.
You would be fooling yourself if you didnt think the Falcons brass arent thinking the same thing. They are going to fire Mike Smith (already been reported), why would they want to make the playoffs and hurt their rebuild by dropping that much in the draft
Late entry to the worst post of 2014 contest, but could win.

Hmmmm, I am in Naples currently. I seriousely thought about flying to ATL Sunday morning from RSW and getting back at night or early Monday. But Tampa would work as well. Need to talk to my wife though. When would we leave Tampa Sunday morning?
Im staying overnight though at the omni. It's walking distance to the dome.
