This is probably tongue in cheek, at the time the niners were OUT of playoff contention, Andrew Luck potentially could have been entering the draft, and the niners needed upgraded at qb, CB and OLB. You do the math, tanking one game after the season is OVER is not the same thing as losing a whole season.
Had we tanked that last game we still wouldn't have had a chance at Luck had he declared. Carolina still would have held that 1st pick.
If the team tanks what does that say about the players and the coaches ? How does that help any of the coaches going forward whether it's keeping their current job or looking for a new one ? It's possible it could have resulted in suspensions, fines and maybe permanent expulsion from the league for some of the coaches and players.
If somehow the league finds out we purposely tanked do you think there would be no imposed penalty on this organization itself? I'd bet we would have become an example and the imposed penalty would have been a hefty one at that, quite possibly even losing that 1st round draft pick.

if we got peterson you can guarentee the round 2 pick would be an OLB pass rusher and the 3rd pick would maybe be stanzi
Actually no you cannot. SMH.
