    Playoffs for sure. But boy it is maddening how this team collectively craps its pants almost every week after a "big" win. Last week this team looked like it truly was going to be a contender. No idea what the hell that was we saw yesterday.

    Draft Picks!! Don't talk about draft picks!! Are you Kidding Me?? Draft Picks???

    Going back to last year...this same question was asked. I say whether we drafted #14 or #24, we would have picked the same guy.

    Yup...when I saw thread title, I was insulted that this was even a question in anyone's mind for even a microsecond.


    The Rams' offense featuring weapons such as Marshall Faulk, Torrey Holt, and Isaac Bruce were known as "The Greatest Show on Turf"

    The Steelers' offense featuring weapons such as Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant should be known as "The Greatest Show on Grass"

    This has nothing at all to do with respective playing surfaces at the Edward Jones Dome vs. Heinz Field.

    Thoughts?
    Playoffs, 5 picks earlier doesn't make that huge of a difference in Talent. It's not the same as picking in the top ten versus the 20's.

    Why would you be insulted?

    Agreed.

    Who would throw away a chance at the Superbowl for a higher draft pick? The purpose of playing the game is to win the Superbowl and to get a shot at the Superbowl you must first get into the playoffs. It isn't to wind up with a higher draft pick and then hope you get into the playoffs and get a shot at the Superbowl another time.

    That's a defeatist attitude that I believe more suitable for Browns or Bengals fans.

    This thread is mind boggling.

    This is a good point. Who cares where you draft. It's a crap shoot. Great players come in all rounds and many go undrafted. Picking later also means players are more affordable.

    I personally like picking 32. Someone will always drop. Lots of guys drop in every round. And lots of scouts get guys wrong.

    I dont care about sexy picks. I'd just rather build a core that will help me compete for a SuperBowl every year. The only exception would be if I need a QB. Then a higher pick might be beneficial.

    So you think by discussing a possible outcome we somehow send out a cosmic vibration that will cause one or another event to actually occur? Really?

    Nothing in this thread said anything about wanting to lose. The innocent question is will you be satisfied with a one and done like last year or is there a "silver lining" to not making the play offs. Of course we all want to make the play offs but we may not. Talking about it doen't mean there is a greater chance it happens.
