If this is too short for some to be a fan shot, I apologize now. Now that we have gotten that out of the way I have a question.
I have seen so many posts about tanking the season to get Luck. I personally am not able to hope the team loses. That is just not in me. If that is where you are, I respect your opinion.
I have heard several people make the legitimate argument that Luck is not guaranteed to be a great QB at the pro level. But another point that I haven't heard made yet is even if we tank the season and get the 1st pick in the draft (which I would hate) what guarantee do we have that Pioli would draft Luck?
I am not going to pretend that I know what he would do, but we know that he usually doesn't pick the person he is expected to pick. In fact, he is so unpredictable that when he did pick the person most people felt he should choose, it was still a huge shock (Eric Berry).
I haven't done any in depth research, but I don't know if Pioli has drafted a QB in the first round. If he has, I know it's not the norm for him. So what happens if we tank the season and Pioli pulls a "Pioli" and drafts someone not named Luck?
