True, Tampa could simply have tanked more than us regardless.

And what do you think Goodell would have done to us if it was completely obvious that we tried to tank the game.

To be honest, I think a team should move to the back of the line if it was blatantly obvious that they had tanked.

If we had tried to tank... welcome to the 32nd pick of every round, and I would applaud it.

Im not sure the 4th for Ivory or the 4/3 we paid for Vilma was getting fleeced

Could have had #7, not to mention better picks in every round.

First 3 picks
#7
#31
#39

Now we are just hoping some teams drop the ball ahead of us so a top player falls. It's more likely that we package the 31 and 13 to get into the top 5, but we wouldn't have had to do these things if we played our bench in week 17. It also would have been nice to see SJB and Powell get some playing time, what a ****ing dumb move that was.
Tampa flat out whooped our arse early on and then called off the dogs -

Lovie Smith probably was saying 'hey, we could win this ****!'...

We'd done better for winning in the long-term to have sat our guys, but ole' Rodge would've stepped in...

We might see 1 or 2 RB's drafted before the Saints 1st pick as well.

Re: POSITION RANKINGS

I could only see Gordon go before 13, Gurley if he wasn't rehabbing his ACL would of been a top 10 pick this draft

Re: POSITION RANKINGS

Gurley is again in top 10 consideration. Had his medical in Indy and knee looks OK.

Re: POSITION RANKINGS

Stop whining ya'll. We won the Tampa game and that gives Payton a better record. He wasn't going to call off the dogs(even if we looked more like poodles than Pitt Bulls). He knew the consequences of both losing and winning that game.

Edit: I wanted to pull the starters and evaluate what we had on the bench, but no..........
