It just means that it’s going to be a transition year until we are able to add more players that fit Rhule’s system. I don’t think we’re bad enough to go 0-16, but I honestly don’t see us winning more than maybe 2-3 games, which could get us the first pick. But, no, I don’t see it being “planned” that way. No coach tells his players to “go out there and do your worst. We’re trying to tank for the first pick.” That just doesn’t happen.

Defensively, we start a rookie at DT after losing McCoy, Poe, Butler, Love. Addison is gone. Yikes. At LB Kuechly is gone. Our best corner Bradberry is gone. Veteran safety Eric Reid is gone. Yes, we had an exciting draft all on defense but these are still rookies replacing veteran professionals. So, it doesn’t seem realistic to expect an improvement over last year’s 5-11 team. The odds are a further decline this year, but on the positive the team will have a ton of money for free agents once this year’s league worst salary cap dead money situation is paid.
