    There's a lot of 6-10 teams. It seems like we're on the bottom end.

    At least our pick will jump up 1 slot every round for about 4-5 rounds. So if we wind up picking 12th in the first round it will be 11th in the 2nd, 10th in the third etc. until we have the first pick out of all the 6-10 teams. The round after that we drop down to pick last but by then it probably won't make a difference. Definitely not a great year to go 6-10.

    Is this assuming Dallas stays ahead of us? Is there any chance their SOS could bump us ahead of them? I know we were very close coming into today. Also, go Seahawks!

    12th unless Seattle wins and we would of been picking 6th had we lost if im looking at it right. Thats six spots for a meaningless feel good win. This team is deserves everything that has happened to it and will for keeping :kubepalm: around.

    We are in 11th place so long as Seattle wins, which they currently are.

    It's not SOS (Strength of Schedule) as the 1st tie breaker, its Opponent's Winning Percentage (OWP), the lower the %, the earlier you pick. Dallas finished with a .5458. Thier opponents won 131 of their 256 possible games. The Texans opponents finished with a .5583, winning 134 of their possible 256 games. Therefore, Dallas' OWP is less, so they suck just a little more than us, and will pick sooner.

    This is exactly why I hoped we would lose today. The best defensive prospects will be gone by the time we pick.

    How is OWP different than SOS then? Doesn't SOS=the record of your opponents? I mean how else can you determine the strength of someones schedule? They are the same thing.

    Yep, we just lost our chance at getting either of the top two DTs. Possibly the 3rd best as well, and we need a Suh/Ngata/Wilfork. This defense is going nowhere without an interior pass rush.

    When we want to lose, we win.

    Another theme of the Kubiak regime,

    Hey Gary if you cant beat the teams that count the least you can do is lose to the teams that dont matter.

    Here is the order for the 2011 draft as posted on the Great Blue North Draft Report, complete with opponents W/L percentages:

    If the Texans had lost today, they would be picking #6 rather than #11.

    This is part of the reason that this team is where it is.

    6-10

    Do you hve any faith that Smithiak will find players in rds 1-2?

    This doesn't even mention the rest of the draft.

    The first pick after a 6-10 season. I'm already having flashback from the Ok0ye pick.

    Which workout warrior do we draft next?

    Man I'm so sick of this. I just want my team to taste the playoffs just once.
