They are professional athletes. They get paid to compete not to lie down. I suspect a win means more to them than it does to "fans" who are obsessed with draft position. Patriots haven't had a high draft pick, except perhaps through trade, for almost two decades. They seem to do all right. If you want to gauge the value of a high draft pick according to this forum just go over to the Solomon Thomas or Reuben Foster threads, or the Mike McGlinchey thread. People were rapping on that pick from the moment it was made. Seems to me it has turned out pretty well so far. George Kittle was a fifth round pick, Breida was an undrafted free agent. With a few obvious exceptions, there is almost no way of knowing how a college player's game is going to translate into the NFL, they spend a lot of time playing against guys who will be going into different careers once they get out of college. The history of the NFL is littered with first round busts, every team has them. Like everyone else I am hoping that the team will be able to get a good edge rusher in the next draft but I also think that the team needs to compete in its final three games. If you let them lie down now you run the risk of losing them altogether. Not to free agency or anything like that but just in terms of their commitment to what you are trying to achieve. You don't need players who are just there to collect a check, you need guys who are committed to winning, which means you have to win sometimes even in a down season to keep them invested in the process and to let them know you are serious about what you are trying to accomplish otherwise why should they continue to put in the effort.

And we got Solomon Thomas instead of Myles Garrett so we could establish a winning culture. We instilled it so well, in fact, that it carried over into last season where we stormed out of the gate 1-10.

Why? SOS would come down to our non-common opponents. TB and NYG have to suck worse than Atl (given the win over AZ) and Wash, not looking good for us. It could easily come down to Atl @ TB week 17, where we would need an Atl win. Again, not looking good right now.

IMO ATL is still the best team out of those 4. They have 3 winnable games (AZ, Carolina, and TB). NY has 3 teams all fighting for a playoff spot and got lucky beating a chase Daniels Bears and a Mark Sanchez skins team. They could easily go 0-3 (Titans, Colts, Cowboys).

I'm gonna call TB and DC a wash because I can't see either getting more than 6 wins rest of the season.

we got lucky with AZ playing ATL this week.

Better tell Atlanta. They've lost 5 straight and have admitted tanking, I mean, "going to a youth movement".

Myles Garrett was the first pick of the draft. How does taking Thomas at three equate with not taking Garrett who was already off the board?
If we are going to win games, lets win them in September, October, and November... The fact that we had two wins in December indicates that we suck. There is no logical reason to hope we continue to win games this late and with our record.

We had the #1 spot. We opted to develop a winning culture instead the last minute of Week 16. We finished culturing at 2-14.

Which is why it is the coach's job to lose strategically. No different than when teams find ways to avoid player performance incentives. We have a creative OC but not so smart HC.

This idea that people want the team to tank is nothing more than a straw man argument. I haven't seen one person be upset that the team itself played hard and the coaches coached well. You said nothing new to what anyone else has said. Its becoming clear that no one in here wants to actually prove why winning a game in a three win season is better than adding a player like Bosa. I've given so many examples as to how losing a lot of games has not hurt the development of our team. What did help was picking high and drafting talented players year after year.

Dude throw a couple paragraphs in there...helps the eyes

Again people seem to not realize what I'm saying...nowhere am I stating the team (players) should or would tank. I've said this a dozen times already.

My posts are in regards to the fans rooting for a pointless win in week 14 over wanting this team to have the best possible chance at getting the best prospect in the draft, who happens to play a position of massive need.

A winning culture doesn't happen in week 14 when you're 2-10.

I don't expect any team in the NFL to lie over and tank...there's too much turnover and not enough guaranteed cash for players to do that. This is about what the FANS want and what I'm talking about.

Again, I'm looking at it logically not emotionally.

Huh? What does this have to do with anything I've stated?? If we had our starting QB we wouldn't be 2-10 heading into week 14 thus NOT making this game a pointless win.

You're pushing the context of what is actually happening vs something that's a hypothetical situation.

I realized after that I should have written, "Tell Atlanta on Monday." lol
