I think Lonestar didn't want to win the division so therefore, we would have been slotted at 8-8 with no playoffs and been higher in the draft order.
Because if you don't win the Lombardi, nothing is worth a ****.
Thats what i was thinking. Even if we lost to the Steelers, we would probably be reaching for someone if not for trading back.
Funny how this is a tainted win because the Steelers were missing starters. Had the Broncos lost, it would have been because the Broncos couldnt beat a depleted team and that they suck.
Guess it isnt worth anything since they didnt win the Lombardi.
I mean, ****, losing for better draft position is what keeps your job in the NFL, right?
