    Like half of the #1 picks over the last 10 years are still on the team that drafted them.

    tanking for #1 is pointless. Good teams aren’t built that way

    If you think there’s a franchise QB at the top of the draft it absolutely isn’t pointless

    There’s not enough talent on this roster to ‘borrow’ our opponents best player to win enough games to pick 12-15.

    yeah man falcons are totally going to pass on Stroud/Bryce because they have a QB room with Marcus Mariota and Desmond Ridder

    I understand why people disagree, but I hate it and the thought of it.

    I want to wake up Sunday thinking I might see a win

    Right now there's just so little to be excited about with the team, both for the current season and the future. Pitts is the only bright spot.

    If 0-17 instead of 7-10 (and still missing the playoffs) gets us Bryce or Stroud or somebody we can be excited to watch, give me that. If we pick 3 and get Will Anderson that's still great, just please not 6-8 wins and missing the playoffs. Nothing worse for the team IMO. And our last 2 top-3 picks were Vick and Ryan. That's the excitement or rebuilding I'm hoping for

    looking at the schedule though, it sure looks pretty damn weak. Wouldn't surprise me at all to see them battling for a WC spot up to the bye week

    I think Wild Bill will be the best defensive prospect in a decade and I’d still pass on him to get one of the QBs.

    Straight into my veins. Doesn't even have to be first pick, just this isn't the year for a December rally to vault us to 6-11, miss the playoffs and pick 8th

    If Kyle can find a way to score 50 TDs this year I like our chances at a SB run

    None of the local channels here have the game and NFLN has the ravens game on. Having to stream the game and cast to the TV.

    It's preseason but Mariota being a running threat really seem to open up the field. That did not suck.

    Always thought Ollison looked good in his limited carries the past two seasons. Looked really good on that dive.

    If Mariota can stay healthy he’s legit good. Now, it’s a big if….
