Let's do a little thought experiment. Suppose that both teams come out on Sunday and try to lose intentionally in order to procure better draft picks.

My question is: How could we tell?

I agree with you, they did. The difference is that I'll never condone nor advocate doing so.

I believe the question is "who wants to lose", my answer is simple, not me, not me for any reason.

I want to lose but for different reasons. Im hoping losing and going 7-9 and maybe getting booed off the field at home for the season ender will torture some of the under achievers and non trying players in the off season so we dont have repeat performance next year.

The Browns want to lose.

Weeden, McCoy AND Richardson all won't dress up on Sunday.

The more I've thought about it... I do want us to lose. Problem is so do the Browns. The steelers players want to win for selfish reasons. Expect Ben to have his best game of the season... he wants those stats. Many of these players want to inflate their stats for when they hit FA.... so expect the most motivated steeler team you've seen since our last SB victory.

I do expect Haley to call a ton of running plays though...so maybe a few fumbles could cause us to lose?

I'll be watching Sunday, with my terrible towel, and i'll be rooting for us to WIN.
Bayz,
Sounds contradictory, but so will I.

However, what gives us a better chance for team improvement next year?
A win over the Browns or a better drafting position?
