I assume this is in reference to the people who wanted to lose the rest of the games to get a better draft pick.¬† ¬†
We'll get a good draft pick?¬† ¬†That's what our fans were saying in 1989.¬† We had the 6th pick in the draft.¬† ¬†We won the final game of a dismal season. Had we lost our final game, we would have had the 3rd pick.¬† ¬†People were saying we'll still get a great pick, no worries.¬† ¬†
That draft went like this:
3) Barry Sanders
4) Deion Sanders
5) Derrick Thomas
6) Broderick Thomas
And Broderick Thomas was not a bad choice at 6, it's just that the really great guys were gone.¬† ¬†Winning that last game was a killer.
I hope history doesnt repeat itself this year.
I figured some of those that are so happy about the win today should see that in bold!!!! [banghead] [banghead] [banghead]
