We sit at 5 wins right now, as do the Carolina Panthers. The Panthers likely won't win another game, as their remaining schedule is the Patriots, Saints, Giants and Vikings. The 49ers have a chance to win all 4 of their remaining games, but once again how much can we gloat if we lose 42-0 in the Wild Card?

Im thinking we tank this season. If we finish 5-11 and the Panthers finish 5-11, that all but guarantees us two Top 7 picks. This gives us plenty of possibilities, whether we want to trade up to get a player (Suh anyone?), trade down with one of our picks for better value (Spiller at 10 or so would save the 49ers a lot of cap room) or stay put and get any BPA sitting there.

I think tanking now and getting two impact players with two Top 10 Picks is better for a team on the verge of making serious noise in the Playofs instead of getting a Top 10 pick and a Mid-Teens pick if we end up goin 9-7.
