I say we "Dive for a Top 5"!!!!!
 
With the season looking like it is over at just over the halfway mark, do you think we just let the youngsters play on the "playground" and take the dive for a top 5 pick?

Not yet. Five losses is too soon to give up. It sends the wrong message to players.

Soon though.

Instead of taking a dive, I say start Hankerson and Paul along with Moss when he comes back, keep starting Helu and hurt and let's give Markus White a chance at LB.

I say if you are a pro athlete, it would be extremely embarrassing if at any point you thought about not giving 100% on the field, especially if you are getting paid a lot of money to do so.

I also say it's pathetic that as a fan you would actively root for this team to lose games for a higher draft pick next season. Name one instance, in the entire history of the big 4 sports leagues in the US, where a team that looked like it was tanking the season actually landed the higher draft pick next year that brought the team good fortune, meaning championships and not just regular season wins, for the next decade.

I have no problem with that, if the season is heading downwards and you have young talent on the bench waiting to be used, by all means let them play, so you can see what you have going forward next season. I draw the line at, hey let's actively tank the season so we have a better chance at getting a higher draft pick for next season. History has proven time and time again it doesn't matter what draft pick you have, it matters how you use it.

If you really think about it Ruh, 90% of these threads are useless. I mean, what do we do in these threads, but just state our opinion about a football team that gives us some distraction from our boredom. Do any of our opinions ultimately matter? No, so in reality these threads are mostly just a distraction, and nothing more.

Don't ever quit. If we lose, we lose. But don't just throw in the towel.

GusFrerotte 11-06-2011 11:03 PM

Re: I say we "Dive for a Top 5"!!!!!
 
OK so we hit like the 8-9 loss mark and we should do the dive? I don't think we dive on purpose, because at this point we are getting to the nasty part of the schedule anyway, so we might take that nosedive regardless.

Somebody has some sense around here.

If you lose 12 games in a season, so be it. As long as you know you went out there and gave it your all, then let it be. Sorry for the cliche and everything but when you say dive, you make it sound intentional. I just can't stomach the thought of the team that I love going out there and intentionally laying an egg for a draft pick that may or may not help the team.
