    Don't We Want To Lose This Week? Draft Position?

    If we lose we will be tied with the chiefs. If I recall, the tiebreaker is the prior year's overall record right? In that case didn't we both finish 8-8 last year? Either way, we need to lose this friggin game and finish a game back of the Chiefs when it is all over. This season is over. Throw Prior in there and tell every player that you are in an audition for the right to come back next year and play everyone....even backups at every position.

    I may be mistaken, but I believe the tiebreaker is strength of schedule. The team with the easiest SOS wins the tiebreaker (with the logic being they played the easiest schedule of the teams that are tied, and they still finished with a bad record).

    Yeah losing to KC would help our stock, but do we really want the #1 pick? I mean what exactly would we get out of that? There's no clear cut #1 this year.

    Don't worry, we won't win. KC is about to embarrass us. Yes, even that is possible.

    The last three are all feasibly winnable games. I mean, the Chiefs, Panthers, and Chargers are all not very good. If we win all three or even two, our draft position could change a lot. We might go from the 2nd or 3rd pick to the 7th-8th pick depending on what every else does (look at the standings and lots of teams have 4 and 5 wins). Therefore, I would just play a lot of folks to see how they perform in a real NFL game, starting with Pryor. Chekwa for sure, also Bergstrom. Why not Nix too? What the heck. But, I would never root for the Raiders to lose....unless Andrew Luck was starting at me as our draft pick...

    Not sure what team you've been watching but what you described is not Oakland.

    The 1st and 2nd pick might be a problem to trade since there aren't any clear cut top 3 players. But we will probably lose anyways so oh well.

    We don't lose by choice. We lose because we suck.

    If we lose this game we really cement ourselves in Top 3, at worst Top 5 position. I hate losing to KC, but like I said before Thursday's debacle I'd rather sweep our division en route to our fourth Lombardi, but that ain't happening without some serious rebuilding. Plus if we get smashed Mark will continue to be displeased and Chucky becomes more likely.

    Yeah we want the #1 pick. Either we will have our choice of anyone we want or we will have way more leverage when dealing. Draft day can't come soon enough!

    Win the game! We've had high draft picks before and blown them. When we picked Jamarcus Russell the Vikings picked Adrian Peterson 6 picks later. Even if we pick at #3 instead of #2 or whatever there's going to be a future hall of famer SOMEWHERE on that draft board when we select.
