    The players are risking their bodies for a pay check. No player is guarenteed to be on a good team.

    Our offense was slightly worse, but our defense was definitely better.

    and I believe every player left on that roster is happier than a hog in poop that they have a roster spot with a contract and paycheck.

    My bet is that the Dolphins are not through come draft day. I can see them trading that #1 for multi picks and waiting for Lawrence (or Rosen to blossom). No
    tank for Tua (or Herbert).

    Lottery is a silly idea in the NFL and the idea of tanking is silly. In the NBA you have 5 players who play most of the game. A superstar pick like LeBron can take a loser to a contender in short order. In the NBA a top tier superstar in college often translates to the same talent level at pro level more often than it does is in NFL.

    Pats could give them Brady and they would still be bad. Tua or any other QB that comes out of the draft is not a lock to be a an NFL great and there is already talk of Hebert and Burrow maybe going ahead of him. The NFL draft is so unpredictable because teams have so many different needs.

    This may be the smartest plan for a team that needs lots of talent. I suspect the Cardinals did not get any overwhelming offers for the #1 pick in the 2019 draft.

    I only feel bad for the season ticket holders
    They’re paying $120 per ticket and people are sitting next to them who bought em online for $5
    The season ticket holders are the ones who got hosed
    It’s miserable
    Sad thing is if the Cardinals lose today we are in the same boat

    Is this a new trend in the NFL? Find a guy who becomes the 1 year rebuild scapegoat and hit reset button with new HC/players?

    Players don't tank….owners and coaching staffs make decisions that prevent players from winning. (calling a run defense in an obvious passing situation)

    I doubt coaches tank. Their job is on the line too. Can you imagine Miami keeping Flores after this?

    shipping off players and stuff is the way to tank and they are doing it in droves.

    Not when the owners tell them what to do
