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.

    • I'll put it this way...if it weren't for Ballard's drafts and FA signings, we'd be 2-11, most likely.   Lots of reasons we're 6-7, but primarily, it's because Ballard drafted and built this roster with Andrew Luck as the QB.  Luck with healthy WRs (Hilton, Funchess, Campbell, Pascal, etc.) and our TEs, plus the running game and we'd be 11-2, most likely.  The missed kicks by AV wouldn't have cost us close games, because we would have had bigger leads.   Losing Luck, the numerous serious injures and JB not having weapons at the skill positions has contributed to the 6-7 record.   Now, I am disappointed in our defense...yes, there have been injuries, but nothing close to what we've had on the offensive side of the ball.  I expected our defense to be much better this year.   Then, there's the kicking game, but we all know the problem with that without going into detail.   Get some proven veteran offensive skill players for JB to work with next season, and add that to the running game and we win more games and put more points on the board.   I do feel that a QB will be drafted and prepared to take over in 2021.  Hopefully we sign some veterans on both sides to help these young guys.  The foundation is there, now it's time to build with quality, proven players.   Also disappointed in our OL play and I have no thoughts on way they have regressed.
    • Nuts to the 2nd rounder! If we are taking a QB, we want the highest 1st rounder possible...ransom the farm to move up.
    • Johnson had more yards Sunday in three catches then Cain has had with the Steelers and colts combined. Johnson also has better measurables then Cain. He is faster and has a better vertical. Now maybe we could of had both right now.  I think Jacoby has way more trust in Johnson then he had in Cain. Which is understandable because he worked with Johnson on the scout team last year. Johnson had opportunities to sign elsewhere and decided to stay here because of Reich. 
    • Is that bad that he is adding players when someone goes down?
    • Will drew brees break peyton manning td record this week.  How funny/ ironic/ fixed is it that he throws 5 td last week vs a great defense and happens to be playing the Colts on prime time to put him position to break it. Brady is 5 behind.
