well guess what? he wasn't a sure thing. neither is patrick peterson or aldon smith or whoever else. i can't comprehend a situation where i would want the niners to lose. absolutely pathetic
I forgot all about the Bush Bowl. Valid point.
Also, you think a coach like Harbaugh would want to come to a team that just threw its last game? If we tried to run some sort of "Oh, we were just trying to protect our guys/prevent injury" line on him, I'm fair certain his B.S. meter would have absolutely exploded.
Quality free agents don't sign with teams that tank games.
Current players aren't interested in playing for a team that tanks games.
Joe Montana wouldn't tank games
Jerry Rice wouldn't tank games.
Ronnie Lott would rather cut off the rest of his fingers than tank games
Steve Young, John Taylor, Jesse Sapolu, Harris Barton, Steve Wallace, Brent Jones, Fred Dean, Eric Wright, Roger Craig, Tom Rathman, Ricky Waters, Michael Carter, Bryant Young. You see any guys that'd be interested in throwing a game for draft position?
"Hey, BY, I know how much you care about winning, but we're gonna need you to let this one go so we can move up a couple of spots in the draft. You see, there's this cornerback from LSU..."
Tanking games is for losers. And not the kind of loser that is indicated by a win-loss record.
