"If we finish 8-8, we can be picking as low a 19th (right now, we are around 14th) in a very weak draft class. That means you will be missing out on guys like Marcus Spears and Rodrique Wright for the defensive line or a stud LT that you guys want so badly or a stud RB like Ronnie Brown. Does 2 wins mean so much that you are willing to lose out on impact players"
You could still get a strong, decent players at 19th spot, of course the draft is a little weak this year but we can still be a playoff team next year evren at that spot. I think 8-8 would boost the morale of the team and give them even more hope going into next year.
