True, but then again you go and look in the thread archive, and tell me this is the only one of recent memory that is useless.

Since we can't suck for Luck, are you asking if we should start, "Whiffin for Griffin?" I just trademarked that.

This thread is as useless as your Gus Frerotte's references and as useless as any of your responses to my original post.

Re: I say we "Dive for a Top 5"!!!!!

I love that we have some really tough teams coming up. The young guys will get to play and learn against some of the best in the nfl. We will most likely lose most of them so have a good shot at a top 5 pick. And maybe a team like the Rams will get #1 and if we are top 5 it wont cost us our next 3 drafts to move up to get Luck. I will take losses for valuable experience for rookies like Hankerson,Helu and Paul. I just want to see improvement from week to week. And will also get us that guy at Qb where its so obvious we are lacking.

Re: I say we "Dive for a Top 5"!!!!!

without a run game, i dont see us being remotely competitive anyways so i dont think we will have to try at losing.

just a few games ago everyone was talking about no less than a 10-6 season . . . .

Re: I say we "Dive for a Top 5"!!!!!

I think starting 3 rookies on offense, all of whom were picked in the 3rd round or later, is the beginning of the "rebuilding" mindset of this team manifested on the field, at least as far as offense goes anyway. No coach will ever use the words "rebuilding" mid-season, but at this point it's clear we need to find out what we have in certain areas.

What will be interesting is how The Shanny Brain Trust handles the QB sitch. IMO Beck looks way in over his head. Badly really. But at this point switching back to Rex is a flat out admission by the staff that we don't have a QB. Even though everyone already knows that, the coaching staff has "staked their reputation" on these guys. It will be interesting to see if, or when, they actually admit we're nowhere at the most important position in the game.

All that said, the notion that teams intentionally tank is dumb.

Just a fun fact. Andrew Lucks number is 12. Maybe we can squint our eyes real tight and pretend its net year and we have Andrew Luck not John Beck

Yeah, Luck is like the Ferrari and Beck is like the ghetto Yugo.

At this point, why not admit it? Why not say we don't have a QB, but we think we have some receivers and running backs and they would benefit more right now from Rex throwing them the ball than Beck. Or heck, just start Crompton already
