NO!

I'm saying we're not a playoff caliber team, so why finish 6-10 with a losing record and not getting a good player than a losing record with a great player.

This guy knows what I'm talking about!
I don't think any NFL team intentionally tanks, including the Redskins, and I hope like hell we win as many games as possible. Just want to clarify that.

All I'm saying is that if we do in fact really suck in 2011, I hope we suck bad enough to get Andrew Luck. If that makes any sense.

This & This.

I hate losing and they should (and will) try to win every game. Sometimes, however, you just don't have the horses. If that's the case, so be it. I just don't see us as being so bad that we end up in the top 3-4 slots. I am betting we are in the 6-10 to 9-7 range (though I hope for better). As long as we get younger and, hopefully, better over the course of the season, I am okay with that for 2011.

Also...this guy must be a lurker here and thinks the idea is ridiculous too.

Starting Beck is no 'tank' job for Redskins - NFC East Blog - ESPN

Enough already. The Redskins are in no way planning to "tank" an entire NFL season, mainly because teams don't do that. This (thankfully) isn't the NBA, where the insane salary-cap structure encourages teams to lose games intentionally in an effort to improve their position in the draft and/or free agency. The 2011 Redskins are not the 2008-09 New York Knicks, and their decision to go with apparently substandard personnel at the most important position on the field shouldn't make anybody think this is the case.

Re: This Just In---Andrew Luck To Stay At Stanford

How would you define "tanking the season"

If Santana Moss is healthy but we keep him inactive in order to give Terrence Austin more playing time at WR, are we tanking the season?

If we are offered Carson Palmer and a late conditional pick for Albert Haynesworth and our 2nd and 3rd round picks in 2012 and we say no, we'll stick with Rex and Beck, have we decided to tank this season?

I'd say probably yes to the first and no to the second (though I do have high hopes for TA this year).

#1- Tanking the season is obsurd, especially if its simply to get one player. No matter what position they play.

#2- No way the team tanks the season especially with the media and fans all expecting MS to get into the playoffs this year or he's fired.

#3- There is no way the Skins get Luck unless they throw a heck of a lot at the team with the #1 pick.

#4- Luck is not a demi god. I'm sure there will be other QB's just as good if not better since I'm totally expecting Luck to suck this year under new management.

I'm really suprised this thread is still running. Tanking the season. Yeah, ok. I hope the team is paying attention so they get the idea.

I wouldn't say the redskins will intentionally tank, but rather go through a rebuilding phase which naturally involves losing. Without a qb (or good WRs, or a good Oline), we are bound to lose ALOT. I think Shanahan knows this, and I don't think even he expects to make 500 no matter who we get in FA. I would like for him to recognize our deficiencies and try to improve upon those this free agency so we can improve as a team for the future. I don't believe we are capable of improving enough no matter who we get to make the playoffs, so I would like for us to get future contributors while still not getting a QB so that our team can improve in the long run but not enough to win too many games this season so that we can still be in the running for luck.
