I want us to tank so we can pick at the start of the 2nd round so we can draft Cam's replacement, the top 5 pick in the 2nd or 3rd rounds seem to be the sweetspot of drafting a solid QB, if Gman cares anything about this franchise he absloutley must draft Cam's replacement this draft.

I find it utterly hilarious people want us to tank for a draft pick.
I love the argument of "well if we didn't suck so hard in 2010, we wouldn't have gotten Cam". You are 100% correct, this situation is different being that we ALREADY HAVE CAM.
In terms of personnel (as in, not our shitty coaches), our biggest glaring weakness is our utterly inept offensive line. Do we have other issues? Absolutely. Listen, I don't care if the next John Ogden is coming out in this draft. One player, no matter how good, is not going to fix the woes of the offensive line. Want proof? Last year we had Gross, who played really freakin well and our oline was still trash. The best lineman we have acquired since Cam has been here was an undrafted guy by the name of Andrew Norwell. Then you look at the bust rate of recent top OTs... Jake Matthews has been unspectacular, Jake Long has been a solid underachiever, Greg Robinson is delegated to backup guard duty, Joeckel and Fisher have done nothing, Matt Kalil has taken massive regression...
Sure a few guys (Tyron Smith, Joe Thomas) have lived up to their name, but this a crap shoot. We need depth and multiple new starters on this line and we need to take MULTIPLE avenues to acquire these men via draft, FA and UDFAs.
Why win the South? How about making the playoffs two years in a row for the first time in history? How about breaking this NFC South "Curse" of a different team winning the division every year? How about rallying to a WINNING record at 8-7-1? How about being a desirable landing spot for quality FAs? How about teaching our guys what it takes to win in the playoffs?
We have an extremely flawed team that needs improvement across the board, but we aren't going to get any better by only being able to land a studly first round pick and suck at everything else. If anything, Marty Hurney should have taught everyone how useless it is to hit a home run in the first only to strike out at every other at bat.

The people responsible are the fans who are so morally righteous that they can't forgive anyone. These social justice warriors believe in excommunication and harassment and do not care about things like freedom of speech or a fair trial.And many here are no better than the people who got Hardy kicked out.
The same principles were in place when that audio recording of Donald Sterling was made public. The guy said some horrendous things in a private conversation and people demanded he sell an entity he was the rightful owner of. And regularly people go after the jobs of people they disagree with, that is the new form of tyranny. Rob Schneider recently lost a job doing commercials for some company because he believes receiving multiple vaccines at the same time causes autism. Of course there is no scientific evidence to support this, but should someone really lose their job for having an unpopular opinion?
You could make a similar argument for Joe Paterno. He followed the law in his actions but for social justice warriors following the law isn't sufficient. You have to throw on the rainbow colored cape and get on the frontlines of social justice or face their wrath.
In the NBA Chris Andersen was 'excused' by the Denver Nuggets when police officers were investigating him for child pornography. After a lengthy investigation it was discovered that he was the subject of an elaborate hoax. Did the social justice warriors or the Denver Nuggets or anyone else compensate him for his damaged reputation and missed job opportunities? No. Social justice warriors answer to no one.
When you constantly have a visceral response to everything and you believe in never forgiving anyone and you think it's productive to make any criminal ineligble to work ever again and you forego due process you are no different from those who got Hardy exempted.
Obvioulsy it's absurd for a player to miss more time for contesting charges than for admitting guilt. This clearly encourages players to accept guilt to make themselves eligible to play. I'm no Hardy fan. The guy is trash personified and anyone making 13 million dollars should not be dating some slutty waitress. But at the end of the day we shouldn't be encouraging guilty pleas so players can play. The punishment for hitting a woman is 6 games. The punishment for hitting a woman and denying it is 18 games. That's basically what the social justice warrior has dictated to Roger Goodell.
Not definitively autism but there is legitimate skepticism in the medical science realm regarding over vaccination (and no, this isn't about all vaccines, nobody is refuting the legitimacy of polio and small pox vaccines). I read this interesting nugget today for example: http://yournewswire....n-flu-vaccines/.
Bravo though! Excellent post. I too find it utterly hilarious and counter-productive how so many people think it is acceptable to solve disputes and social issues through violence, force, imprisonment or economic servitude. It is no different than a radical religious group showing up to your village informing you to following their system of belief and laws or be murdered. Take the Ray Rice situation for example: Even if Rice was barred from ever playing in the NFL again or receives a prison sentence, in what way is justice served to the victim Janay? All she gets is a husband with no method to support their family.
People who subscribe to this thought legitimately believe it is acceptable methodology because a *FEW* false accusations are worth barring the acts from society. For one, the laws and punishments are never successful in barring those actions from society. Rapists, murderers and thieves commit those acts regardless of the punishments already set in place. False accusations have always been a significant societal issue, hence why the forefathers of the USA attempted to set up a series of systems to protect the innocent until proven guilty. Even so, we still experienced the salem witch trials, the massive incarceration of Japanese Americans in concentration camps during WW2, and the commie witch hunt during the cold war.

Newton could be a marketing firms dream in a Dallas uniform.
I think that is a massive understatement. We'd be hearing about our own boy more than Andrew Luck. His jersey sales would be through the roof before he evens handles a snap. All of his wonderful charity work would now be headlines. Journalists would have their genitals mutilated for even mentioning his Auburn accusations.
