We had the number one pick coming into this Seattle game, so yes we had a shot at it.

Easy. No need for a comment like that.

If I were a betting man, I would put money on us adding 1-2 edge rushers in the off-season.

I wouldn't bet anything. I could see them getting some serviceable pieces on the cheap, but probably no studs.
I am glad we won't get the first pick.

It is embarrassing to get it.

Dafuq...all 4 teams that we needed to win or lose to give us room against AZ in SOS happened in perfect order. There was only one thing that could screw it up going into the Hawks game.

Oh well.
Professional footballers trying to win games. Whatever next?

Very high possibility that this is nothing more than an assumption at this point.

We are so far out from the draft and having a better idea of what the top 10 will look like. We also have no idea as to what FA will bring.


We went from 100% picking Nick Bosa, to there being a high chance that we'll skip the need and draft BPA. It is no longer a sure thing anymore that we will solve the edge need in the offseason. Go in with low expectations.

If I were a betting man, I would put money on us adding 1-2 edge rushers in the off-season.

Who? Edge rushers never hit the free agency market. It'll be through the draft. Yes there are other players in the draft who may be good, but they are far more risky and less likely to be as successful as Bosa.

Keep in mind that..
1 extra win in Week 17 was the difference between drafting DeForest vs drafting Joey Bosa
1 extra win in Week 16 was the difference between drafting Solomon Thomas vs Myles Garrett

Would you rather have a DeForest/Thomas combo or Garrett/Bosa?

Thats not how it works.

Chandler Jones led the league in sacks last year, the Cardinals got him for a 2nd rounder. Seattle built up their SB defense through signing pass rushers like Avril and Bennett in FA. Mack was just traded to the Bears this year. Jason Pierre Paul has 12 sacks, Tampa got him via FA.

There are many ways to get high quality pass rushers outside of the #1 pick.

Of course there are a ton of options and you can always find gems in the draft. But what has a higher probability of success? What % of ER drafted in the 2nd round are better than a top 3 pick ER?

If you had to bet all of your money, would you rather bet on picking the right side of a coin flip or the picking the right # on a die.
Cannot ask professional athletes to lose games on purpose, wouldn't want to have anyone who would lose on purpose on this squad or any team.

Did I want us to pick 1st? Sure. However, I can't actively root for these guys to lose when they're busting their asses. We aren't the worst team in the league, Kyle schemes O like a genius and that's with half the roster out. We can still get a great edge rusher in FA and the draft. Our pick will still be plenty high.

Yup this worries me. Of Peyton Manning vs Ryan leaf. The number one pick matters big time. Let's hope Allen is close to or better than bosa

Best post I've seen on the subject.
Maybe we can get a Khalil Mack/jadaveon clowney situation.
