Here is another thought. It may not be the players but the FO who may see the benefit. Actually it can be a dual benefit in not only getting a higher pick, but also not having to pay those incentives/escalators you speak of.

As to were we are going to draft, that won't be decided until the last game. In case you didn't notice, the team that needs luck the most just went out and won.
But that one pick at the top of the draft gives you the best chance at drafting a player that can have the greatest impact on the team.
Besides, the draft isn't about 1 pick. Last time I checked, most teams will have multiple picks.
Even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while.
b. I love it when we win but I especially love it when we win with BACKUPS.
Me. And I am just waiting to hear how beating Washington dispels any of that.
Who was it was telling me that we have no talent on this team.
c. Bunch sets vs Spread sets and how it affects our offense. Anyone with half a brain should have come away from that game never wanting to see another bunched set. Hell, we had a QB that can only run, do well with 3 WR sets....and.....GUESS WHAT......Defenders still had to go out and defend those WR's even though they knew pretty damn well he wasn't going to throw to them.
You can win with bunched sets if you have the commitment, the talent, and the right coaches. We don't.
I am fine with getting rid of him but he is so far from our biggest problem that I am not going to comment any farther on him until the other spots are addressed.
d. Shortwellllllllllllllll. Missed a PAT for cripes sake and I swear his kicks are not only getting shorter, they have less fricken hang time. Damn I'd hate to be on that ST's coverage crew.
A 3-4 defense would fix that too.
e. DT's. Royster (yes Royster) just put up 132 yards against us. I wonder what Bell will do seeings how he put up 121 against the PUKERS. Can I finally get a AMEN from the congregation for a 0 Technique run stuffing/pocket collapsing NT?
Yeah, hopefully it will convince the Ziggster that everything is hunky dory with the team so they can keep everything just the way it is and hope for a better record next year.
In the end, it was a great win and I'm glad to see it regardless of what it MIGHT HAVE DONE to our draft position.
