Its not even tanking, its just the smart approach to take. This team has holes all over, blown out numerous times all season. Gathering young talent and trying to develop them for the future is the correct move to make over blowing our load on aging vets , knowing damn well we arent winning the division or making the playoffs next year. Idzik sucked but put the next GM in a great position and Macc blew it with a bunch of horrible signings and 2 years later we are back with the 6 pick, lack of young talent, aging overpaid vets and no QB in sight. We've gone nowhere...back to square one.
Macc and Bowles jobs are on the line so their agendas dont fit the long term goals. We should be trying to sell off any aging player we can and gather as many picks as we can and rebuilding it from scratch. Signing guys like Romo is just selling false hope to naive fans. Start the young guys and rebuild properly. If that means 2 years picking within the top 3 so be it
