Look at this roster and tell me why people think we should be good/we are not tanking?
21 dudes on our roster are on 1 year deals.
20 players have 2 years or less experience in the NFL
Our rookie OT is the 6th highest paid player (per year AVG) on the entire team.
Our starting QB is 28 and has never won an NFL game.

Because you don't trade a 5th for a better QB if you are tanking.
Because you don't trade a 5th for a worst QB ever, or because you already have Blough.
These are simply not moves tanking teams make.
The options are not only "Tank" and "Superbowl run". There's plenty of in between. Everyone in the Org knows that there was too much roster work and cap restructuring required to make the playoffs they year. They know it's going to be a tough year. That doesn't mean they are intentionally tanking.
There's a middle ground where you can blood young players, try to find some cheap FA's that fit what you want to do, coach well and play hard. Try build a culture of effort and standards, if not winning.
Which seems to be exactly what we have done so far.
After all, we are 2 Zach Ertz catches away from being 2-0.
