In response to JulesWinfield's comment:
Funny conversation. I don't know how you'd convince a single NFL player to intentionally tank. Their game tape is their resume, and who's going to risk putting themselves out of their high-paying job so the team can draft the top prospect? Never would happen.
I think we've missed the best argument for why the Colts were so terrible last year. During most of the year, the QB play was so horrendous that it was almost impossible for them to win. The QB is the most important player on the field, and Collins and Painter were epically bad. Added to that is the fact that the team was very poorly coached (no Dungy, Tom Moore, or Howard Mudd)...so when the team played so poorly, much of the team largely gave up.
glad you appreciate the humor of pushing trolls buttons... Except there is actually more to this than that. players do what they're told so its more about the coaching and management . That is where you find the manipulation of roster moves, playcalling, and passive coaching that produces the beyond unlikely losing streak of a 9 consecutive year playoff team.
So you are saying that Belichick told Brady to throw that ball to no one so that they would take a safety in the superbowl? Is that what you mean by players doing what they are told?
Given your logic, I can't imagine the surprise Polian, Caldwell and the rest of the front office and coaching staff must have felt when by engineering this beyond unlikely feat, they subsequently engineered themselves right out of their jobs.
Jokes on them I guess, right?
That Irsay is one ruthless SOB. Belichick's got nothing on him.
