      [2024] Race to the Bottom - Tracking the #1 Draft Pick (Week 14 edition)


      Recommended Posts

      We close out the year with 3 winnable home games.  I would not at all be surprised to see us win a couple of those and end up picking in the 5-10 range.  Of course I'd rather pick #1 but I feel like despite the current standings, we're just about the least likely of this group to lose out.   While our defense is still the joke of the league, we at least have figured out our offense somewhat, and that makes us at least modestly competitive relative to the other teams at the bottom.  

      Arizona is almost guaranteed to lose out, given their remaining schedule.  They hold a win over us and I'm pretty sure that win trumps our SOS advantage anyway, even if we somehow did lose all the remaining games.

      This part (Head-to-head) doesn't really matter for draft position though - it's the 4th tiebreaker behind SOS, Division, and Conference records.

      Wow our remaining schedule is brutal 

      Ours is brutal-er.

       

      AND we just came off of a nailbiter with Tennessee.

       

      Actually, outside of the game with Houston, which we played with some key, crippling injuries, our schedule the entire second half plus has been a gauntlet.

      @ Seattle
      @ Denver
      San Francisco
      Indianapolis
      @ Kansas City
      Houston
      @ Tennessee
      @ Las Vegas
      @ LA Rams
      Kansas City
      Denver

      Yeah, I always forget this is the case. We could theoretically redo the draft tiebreaker with a resolution tho.

      Wait, rooting against us means that they will have a worse chance for the #1 Overall Pick? 

       

      The better the Bears do, the higher the Cardinals strength of schedule goes. Which brings down the Cardinals chances of the #1 pick, because losing to good teams --> makes you look better --> lowers your draft position.

       

      So Bears wins help Tampa and Carolina; Bears losses help Arizona.

      Damn... Arizona unlucky... Teams with a QB... lucky.

      Seven weeks ago you would not have described us in this fashion....and we have made no changes at QB in that time.

      So it looks like the Carolina @ Tampa game in the final week of the season is going to be the Ballard Bowl...and the winner (the team that loses the game) will put Matt Ballard on their bench for at least a couple of seasons.  Hmm.

      No way Carolina doesn’t trade down for a haul. And away from division.
