I agree with the OP that it would be bad news for the future of this team. They'd be gaining nothing and giving up valuable positions in the draft.
Playoff experience on a young team is VERY valuable, whether that means a first round exit or not. In fact, a first round exit might be beneficial. Makes the players hungrier to go further in the future.
