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.
