Rooting for Losing

I have officially given up on the 2007 Jets season.  I want them to lose very single game.  I do not want them to go 8-8.  I would like 1-15.  We are aiming for the number one draft pick next year.  Mostly likely, they should trade that pick down and build up some depth in the team.  I am wathcing Chad Pennington run the offense.  He just looks lack-luster.  Something about his body language makes it look like he has lost his edge.  And certainly, his passes are slow and wounded-duck-like.

The season is a completely fiasco.  We don’t have enough talent and we don’t have the right chemistry.  We need defense!

Ugh.  Maybe I should just take the games off my calendar.  This is embarrassing.  I would rather be playing tennis or writing the book.  Speaking of which, I should do that now.

No, no, no. The first pick is bad, bad, bad. In a world of salary caps the first picks is never worth the huge investment. Since 1990, in 17 years, there have only been 4 number picks who have even close to justifying the money for the #1 pick, Bledsoe, Orlando Pace, Payton Manning, and Carlson Palmer. Of course, the #1 pick would be great if they traded it for several later first round picks, but they never do that. However, a more reasonable approach to hoping the Jets lose, is that their schedule next year would be much easier. And as I believe the Jets are actually a better team this year than last, a creampuff schedule could bring us back to the playoffs again.

Whatya think?
