Due to the vagaries of the NFL and the draft, the important item in the list of determinants, for the no 1 pick we have this:
- Overall ties are then broken by strength of schedule, which is a calculation of the combined record of all of a team\’s opponents in that year, with divisional opponents counting twice.
I thought head-to-head was the first determining factor, but apparently that is only for playoff seeding, not the draft. So, by not playing this weekend, and the Raiders winning on the road against a team the beat us twice, the Cards, we own the right to draft yet another defensive lineman in Nick Bosa.
Yay! I don’t think this team will have a problem losing out, as BDN has shriveled a little, and our defense is of the Swiss cheese variety. Sure, I’d like to see us play well down the stretch like anyone else, but really, who cares? I may feel different on game day but right now, let the chips fall where they will and go 2-14 and secure the no 1 pick.
