Would it be sooo bad, if the wheels completely fall off the wagon at this point?

    We KNOW we aren't going to win the Super Bowl this year. We KNOW that this defense (aside from the LBs) requires a WHOLESALE REBUILD via the draft. We flat-out need to get younger and better on that side of the ball. Sooooo, now that Cutler is out and we realize that this season is going nowhere fast, wouldn't it be better to get as high of 1st round draft choice as possible? We need MULTIPLE playmakers on the defensive side of the ball. Pass-rushing savants are at a premium in this league, so would it be so bad if we went 5-11 or 6-10, as opposed to 8-8 or 9-7? Emery needs to stock up on as many draft pics as possible and get to work rebuilding this defense. Going 8-8 is only going to serve as a hindrance to finding a defensive playmaker in the first round.

    I prefer that not to happen, honestly. The more fight a team puts up, the more you have to build off of, for next year. Plus, I think everyone trusts Emery to not repeat his mistakes, as he did with two of his first three draft picks.

    I'll take a 10 win season over a 6 win season, but I'll take a 4 win season over an 8 win season.

    In the NFL you want to be either REALLY good, or REALLY bad, 7-9 win's is like NFL hell.

    This is especially true now that there's a rookie cap in place. You won't get bent over by paying a top pick an outrageous contract.

    If a team gets a losing stench, it can be a cancerous attitude caught by the team. You want the team to play balls-out football, and win every game they can. Also, higher draft picks are great, but many great teams have been built without a bunch of high 1st rounders, while other teams (Detroit is the poster boy here) have lost year after year with a roster full of high round picks.

    Emery will get this done. Fans need to chill a bit and give him the time to do this. We all (me included) want instant gratification, but it doesn't happen like that very often in the NFL. I'm looking forward to Emery having another GREAT off-season building up the team through a combination of the draft and free agency.

    I don't want us to have a Detroit type finish to our season. Let's hope the team does its best, learns how to win under adversity, and then let's build on that next year when we have better players..

    Wheels, if not off, are quickly coming off. Briggs is out 4-6 weeks w/a shoulder injury.

    I saw that. Bad news indeed. Maybe it will be an opportunity to see his eventual replacement work (Green). I get it that we take a devastating blow here, but I'm curious to see how Green develops as he gets more game reps. He looks like he could ultimately be good (yes, he'll make some bone head plays in the meantime).

    Well, the good thing about Emery, is that he seems adept at finding solid players, regardless of where he is drafting. Sure, it would be nice to have a very high pick in the draft, but even a 20 pick or so isnt the end of the world (see: Long, Bostic, AJ, Mills)
