Are You Rooting For A Win Tomorrow?

There's two ways of seeing tomorrow's game against the Dolphins. While the Eagles are not mathematically eliminated from the playoffs, it would take a minor miracle for them to get there. They would need total collapses from the Giants (already happening) and Cowboys and of course the most unlikely of all... they'd need to win out. So for all intents and purposes, the season is pretty much over.

So back to the two ways of looking at it. Is winning or losing better?

Winning - It's a football game and as Herm Edwards so eloquently put it, you play to win the game. And he's right. The players and coaches all want to win and gain nothing from losing. As fans, we all want to enjoy yourselves while watching football right? And there's no doubt that winning is more fun than losing.

Losing - Better draft pick. It's that simple. The more you lose, the better your pick is. If it all ended today, the Eagles would have the #6 pick in the draft. With a choice that high and two high second round picks next year, there's a real chance for the 2012 draft to be franchise changing. So in a sense, losing could be seen as what's best for the franchise going ahead. And actually, this weekend is pretty big for those rooting for a high pick, because a win puts the Eagles below the Dolphins in the standings (the two are currently tied).

So what say you? Do you want to see a win or a loss this weekend?
