That means play yonger guys and see what you have for the future. Winning is pointless.
You mean guys like Foles, and Bryce Brown and McNutt and Johnson and Cox and Curry and Anderson (I'm sure I missed a couple of other names there)?
Isn't that what's happening? What happens when those young guys win? Should everyone be pissed? The win yesterday didn't alter our draft position as it stood before the game.
I'm not sure it would matter if it did, what college player out there is worth losing the next 3 games to get that we probably wouldn't otherwise get if we won the next 3 games?
Come draft day, I'll want the highest picks possible and will probably wish we had done worse during the 2012 season. Right now, in the season with the draft 4 or 5 months away, I only care about the games. I'm an Eagles fan so I can't root for them to lose and can't be happy when they do.
The draft will be what it will be. My pleasure or displeasure, rooting for wins or losses won't alter that in the least little bit. Nothing in this world that I do, say or pray will alter anything that happens with, to or for the Eagles. So why not just be a fan and be happy when they win and be pissed when they lose?
What do I or the Eagles gain (or lose) by doing the opposite?
