I dont think anyone complaining expected Pagano or the players would try to lose. The frustration is that Pagano costing us by winning a meaningless game is kind of a reminiscent of his incompetent coaching. 

Why are you blaming a coach for winning?  He's supposed to motivate his team and that is what he did.

Please answer CGI4life's post above.  What should he do to tell his team to "throw" this game so that the organization can get a better pick?  "Forget about playing for your jobs.  Just go out and play like crap."

Really...

Read... What are you not understanding? I said I didn't expect Pagano to try to lose... of course I expected he and the players to try and win. But, Pagano's tenure as coach is filled with good intentions that backfired, didn't work, and didn't help the Colts. This win is a snapshot of his career. If you don't understand that why people are frustrated than I don't know how to make it any more simple for you.

So his wanting to win a game is bad for the team.  Okay.  Now I'm clear on it.

Thanks.

I'm outta' here.

Your reading comprehension is lacking or you are being purposely difficult. His winning the game did not help the franchise and potentially cost them draft pick so yes in a way his wanting to win was bad for the team. 

 

Don't let me stop you from celebrating this marvelous meaningful win and everything Pagano brought to the team over his tenure.

You're naive (or deluded) if you think the Colts wouldn't want a #2 pick compared to a #3 pick. There's no point to the Colts winning a game in a lost season beyond boosting team pride. 

 

I mean you think the Colts wanted to win another game in 2011 and cost them the #1 spot in Andrew Luck? 

 

That being said good for them that they did win I'm sure it was a trying season for this team with how bad this year was to end on a good note.

 

 

They damn well played to win. When you play a division opponent it’s never a meaningless win. I sure as hell don’t watch hoping the lose. That’s  ignorant. 

 

Losing teams lose even when they get top 2 picks (Ahem Cleveland).

 

Settling for losing breeds being ok with losing.

    • Brissett will be better than last year.  Its surprising how everyone forgets he was running for his life every play.  Even Andrew struggled with that pressure... all QBs do.  Brissett will be much better with a year's experience under his belt and an OL that can protect him. other GMs know this and it WILL affect his value.  The way teams spend on unproven QBs, i can see a team or two offering a 2nd or 3rd.  Heck, the Jets gave up 3 to move up only 3 spots to land an unproven QB.  And they really didnt even know WHICH unproven QB they would get.  Some teams get desperate for a starting QB, as we have seen over and over. if we dont get the trade we want, use him until FA in  2 years. i think, under the circumstances (which were stacked against him), Brissett performed better than people give him credit for.
    • If I’m a GM I say one thing.. ‘Good lord no.’   He’s a garbage person.
    • Exactly about the Rockets,  Exactly about LeBron and a game 7 too.  I am not sure the Celtics want that, home or away.  They need to win this game.  I have a bad feeling if the Cavs win tonight easily that they'll win the next 2 after that too.  I guess we'll see.  Be nice to see Boston win tonight! I agree!
    • Well, he was not a 1st rounder, so there is no 5th year option.  We can have him this year, but next year is his last (@ $915,000.00) under contract.  He will want to test FA, and teams wont trade for him unless they fully beleive they can work out a contract.     We'd be lucky to get a 3rd rounder in the following (next) draft for him).  Garopolo was a 2nd rounder, and NE got a second rounder in the next year draft for him, and JG was showcased well and was a desired commodity.  Got paid. I'm not sure JB gets that kind of attention based upon last year.     It would be nice, but I think it is rainbow colored...  see JG example just  above.     I think this as well.  Trade likely won't happen if we demand too much.     I'd like that, but don't think it will happen unless he lights it up this year (which means Luck isn't playing, which would be bad as well).  Time will tell.
