Now look at 5-10 what's the difference there? (This is where we sit currently) I don't see too much difference. And if there isn't really too much difference, why preach failure and let's just give up to the team rather than give it your all regardless of the situation.
yes there was a drop off from 4 to 5 but not really a drop off in 1-4 and 5-10
Because you don't want to be that team on the other side of the talent drop off - no matter if it's at the 3rd spot, 5th spot, or 8th spot.
The way I see it, being able to acquire and develop out of a larger pool is more valuable than a few points gained at the end of a lost season.
Don't forget - for every spot we move up in the draft - that's a spot moved up in all 7 rounds. The difference between 6th and 8th is 14 picks over the course of the entire draft
They should have been "giving it thier all" back in November and December and January when it could have made a difference in the season.
