at least if it was contingent on a playoff appearance you could rationalize it...8-8?
I thoroughly get your point. But we had no leverage whatsoever because there were other teams that wanted AS just as bad so we did and we had to drop our pants even further. Especially since we had no legit NFL QB on the roster and the 9ers knew it and bent us over. Dorsey would have done the same if we were in their shoes. Fallout is on Pioli not Dorsey/Reid for hanging his hat on Cassel and leaving us with sh** at QB plain and simple.
