Default Bomb and get #1 pick or go 8-8 and miss postseason?

Would you rather...

Your favorite team go bust and get the #1 pick or go 8-8 and miss the playoffs?

8-8

Only because the Saints have done it for years. They were always on the verge but never there.

If you go 8-8 you're almost there.

Hmmm....the Titans can go either way. If Young stays healthy for the entire season, I would take the 8-8 season. If he gets hurt due to the Madden curse, I could see a top 5 pick coming up

Depends on expectations.

If your team is terrible on paper going into the season then 8-8 and missing the playoffs is awesome (see Bengals in '03).

If your team is good and only manages 8-8 and misses the postseason then I'd rather them take more losses for a better pick (see Bengals '06).

VY's success and the ensuing Titans resurgence that brought them to the brink of a post season birth was something very, very special for that franchise and city.

1st pick, n e thing short of playoffs is a waste of the season. titans started 0-5, we gotta got calvin johnson, but instead showed what we can do and went 8-8 and all we have to show for it is another weak paper team and the #19 pick.

So building chemistry towards the end of the season to carry into next year is a waste of a season?

It's a waste that they have so much team confidence, players are better, and now VY has answered many questions. How can you call it a waste. If they went 2-14 everyone would be calling Vince a waste and the team would have no confidence. You never want to be the worst team, ever.

Hmm, Depends what you need. If you have a young Franchise QB a la Carson Palmer or Quinn, 8-8 never fails.

THis is actually a good topic. I think I would take 8-8, but it is close IMO.

8-8, a top pick isn't worth the money the player will get let alone the humility and shame of being a sucky team.

If you miss pick in the top 5 you can be screwed for years to come.

I think I'd rather have my team put into place a top tier scouting staff
than have a year of 8-8 football.

If you look at it from the packers standpoint this year it can go either way, we were 4-8 heading into our last 4 games. WE played incredible in all of those games and were able to pull out a respectable season and a possible reason for Favre staying, but we still didn't adress the RB position they way we would like too. If we had tanked the last four games it would have a been a second season in a row with no hope, no momentum going into next season , Favre possibly retiring, but we would have got AD. So it's very debatable on both ends but I'll still go 8-8.

as a lions fan, i can testify that being at the top of the draft is worthless compared to being in playoff contention

8-8, The Browns don't have their #1 pick next year. I want Brady Quinn to look good.

If you KNOW that your season is doomed (such as the Saints being displaced), then after a point you're like, "Oh Jesus, let's just get a high draft pick." At least I was after that long season.
