But we hit rock bottom after our loss to Jacksonville, right before our bye week. Since then, we have lost 3 games by 3 points (2 in overtime), and won our last 2. The way we are playing, WE WILL NOT HAVE THE FIRST OVERALL DRAFT PICK.
And I'm glad. I'll take the wins, and I'll take our chances of drafting a quality guy with our 3rd, or 5th, or whatever pick.
The way Fitz is playing, we don't have to reach for a QB. He is probably not our long term solution, but if the QB we really like isn't there, we can live with him for a year or two and draft defensive front 7 players, which we desperately need. In fact, we might be able to trade down more easily and get additional help.
And we don't have as many holes to fill on offense as we once thought, with some of our young O-linemen developing, and our WR corps looking better every week.
I know we bottomed out sooner than some of you would have liked, and we won't be 0-16, and we probably won't be able to pick the mystical and magical Andrew Luck. But I'll take winning a few, developing our offensive guys, getting this team some confidence, and drafting defense, defense, defense every time.
