Every year friends and me go to the Niners at Tards game. I know were really close record wise. And I do think a run right now is stupid because even if we were to make the playoffs, we'd be murdered 1st round. Now I know I'm gonna take a lot of s*** for this one, but do I want the Niners to lose?
Think about it. Luck will be gone to the Bills, which leaves Mallet and Locker. Locker is looking more and more like a dud. Now, we know the Tards need a QB worse than us. My worst fear is that we lose Mallet to the Tards because we finish with a better record and we get stuck with someone like Locker who has a better chance of failing in the NFL. Ever since we've started losing, I've thought that I wouldn't mind losing every game EXCEPT Raiders and Cards. But if we win it can cost us long-term, big time.
Luck gone to the Bills? They are 2-8 we are 3-7, is it really a lock that the Bills will be drafting ahead of us? I believe a tie would give us better draft position due to our easier strength of schedule.
Luck to the Cards, who currently have better draft position than us would be a much bigger concern.
Also to the poster that said, "if you want to root for the Cards.." I get where you are coming from. Luck is no sure thing, no one is. But rooting for the 49ers to have better draft position isn't necessarily rooting against the 49ers. It's the belief that the team will win more games in the long term due to this draft position. Imagine if the Colts had won a little bit more prior to selecting Peyton Manning 1st overall. I think most Colts fans would agree that's its probably a good thing they lost as much as they did.
