I hear a lot of people on this board who want to lose out to get a top draft pick again. I was just wondering if the two options were winning out or losing out which would you prefer.

DUH??
Of course lose out.  Look what a top draft pick gets you:  Luck, RG3, etc ...
Pah-leese.
Not to mention we lost out on Luke Kuechley, Von Miller,etc ... in years past and those guys are really good LB's.

Win out still might put you in the playoffs.

Holy cow.  I honestly don't know how any fan would root against 9-7.  Especially in a year where there is no luck or rg3.
This should have been a public poll so we can see who said what.

How do you make it public?

I'd much rather they win out, but as someone else pointed out it doesn't do the. Much good to win three or four more games this season. It's all or nothing at this point.

Would you rather lose out or go 8-8?

Does this scenario change anyone's mind?

right now it's win out.  if the team loses again, then ask the question again. 9-7 might get a playoff game.  8-8 won't.  as soon as it becomes impossible to make the playoffs, then the idea of losing out for draft position becomes a more reasonable philosphy.
i doubt the team will win out, but they might win this week.

Why chose to lose when winning feels so much better. 9-7 would be sweet.

Silly question for a REAL Bills fan.....lose out and have another high draft pick, or win out and have a chance at the playoffs?


Duh?!?!

I'd endure unanesthetized testicle surgery for just a sniff at the playoffs.

I want to be the kind of team that wins five games in a row. So I want to be 9-7. But if we win five games on freak plays and forfeits, I don't get some kind of thrill out of it.

I want to win out personally. I just wanted to see what others thought

The assumption is because we get a top 10, we'll magically get a great pick. That hasn't been the case with us in 12 years. The Pats, and Steelers, however, which pick in the bottom 10, probably pick better than we do.

Heavily prefer us winning out and heading into next season with momentum, and respect. Matter of fact, if we don't beat the Jags, I probably won't watch another game this season. I prefer to watch my team win, not lose. No contest for me unless it's a No. 1 pick.

Yeah, I picked up on the "exploratory" tone to your thread, but I just can't imagine a fan of ANY team choosing to lose every game over winning and a chance at the playoffs.  I don't understand these people.

Root for the Bills in-season. Talk about the draft later.

Win out. I have seen enough losing in the last 13 years that I'm good for now. You'll still be able to get a QB who drops in the first, ala Aaron Rodgers. Top 5 selections do not ensure success, but success breeds success so I will take winning out.

Sadly, when Ralph wanted a second round QB in the 2011 Draft...

Nix thought he meant 'Cor-ner-back', because his hearing aid was low.

Sadly, when Ralph wanted a QB in the first round of the 2012 Draft...

Nix thought he meant 'Cor-ner-back', because his hearing aid was on low again.

Edit: Alright, this joke is lame, but cute--because, Ralph and Nix are old!

Win out and we will make the playoffs.  Sadly, I think I'm one of the only ones on this board that thinks it will actually happy and have, accordingly, been called "delusional" on numerous occasions.  Maybe, but at least I'm still excited to watch tomorrow's game while most of you will be going to Home Depot and Bed Bath and Beyond.
