In response to Mike-J-D's comment:
They better not, otherwise we might draw the conclusion that all that stuff we heard about how that Colts team last was the worst team ever and how it was evidence that Manning was MVP in absentia was a croc of... something.
Exactly... Or to paraphrase... The more the colts win, the more unequivocal proof of bill polians tanking scheme to get luck...
a QB can't do it alone... Peyton went 3-13 his first year after polian tanked the prior year to get him. Its so obvious, people just need to call it what it is ... The biggest tanking scandal in sports history.
somebody needs to investigate this, get some player quotes and write a book. probably won't happen til colts make the playoffs, then the microscope will be on them.
HEY COOLADE! LOVE THAT!
Ol Polian, God love him, one of the most selfish men in football suddenly has an epiphany, chooses give up his selfishness for the good of the team. He put his own employment AND his son's employment on the line - all for the good of the colts. That's Coolade's story.
Sounds like Hallmark movie or a fairy tale (aren't they really the same?).
Of course, like any good fiction, you can't let facts get in the way of the story. For example, coolade's background about how this was Polian's second feeding at the colts "tank" doesn't work since Polian wasn't a part of the colts season prior to drafting Manning.
Keep the ideas up though Coolade, I'll edit for you and we'll get ya published one way or another. I hear there's a growing industry around toilet paper novels. Apparently its a great holiday gift.
