    I hate to say it, but I wish we would play the young QBs and see what happens, I mean even if we lose we get 4 picks down and a glimpse of our QBs.

    Thanks for the update Hostile. Now that we can finally look ahead to next year... "The Dallas Cowboys, with the 21st pick in the draft, select (you fill in the blank)...

    Shouldn't the Patriots be picking lower than us?

    What a travesty that a loaded playoff team like NE picks ahead of us.

    Playoff teams pick after non-playoff teams, correct? Didn't we visit this scenario with Buffalo's pick last year?

    Why would they?

    The number 1 tie breaker is strength of schedule.

    No, the first tie breaker is still the strength of schedule.

    Minnesota and St. Louis made the playoffs in 2004. See where they picked in the 2005 Drfat. 18th and 19th.

    Playoffs are not a factor unless you reach the SB. St Louis was a playoff team that drafted ahead of Buffalo last year.

    Weren't Minnesota and St. Louis in the playoffs last year?

    Being in the playoffs does NOT give you a lower Draft order.

    1st tie breaker is Strenght of Schedule, period.

    If the playoff teams picked after the non playoff teams they would pick from 21 through 32.

    Last year Minnesota picked 18th and St. Louis picked 19th. Both made the playoffs at 8-8.

    Buffalo was 9-7, missed the playoffs, and picked 22 (our pick).

    Only the Super Bowl participants are slotted. The rest rely on record and tie breakers.

    I could, because I remember those dummies taking Alex Barron and Erasmus James over Spears.

    Now I recall. We were pulling for Minnesota to adavance in the playoffs to improve our draft position.

    In the end, it wouldn't have mattered. Dallas would have picked Spears even if they had drafted several spots higher with their second 1st rounder.

    Interesting that the Eagles had a nightmare of a season and are rewarded with only the 14th pick.

    Also weird that there are NO 7-9 teams this year and only one 8-8 team. I guess this extends the streak of the Falcons not having back to back winning seasons in franchise history for 2 more years.

    It amazed me how many teams were 9-7 or better. That is unreal. 2 8-8 teams made the playoffs last year.

    This year two 10-6 teams could be eliminated as well as three 9-7 teams if Dallas wins. If they lose it is one 10-6 team and four 9-7 teams.

    Thanks Hos.

    It appears I was incorrect in my information regarding this subject this afternoon. I wholeheartedly apologize for that. :eek::
