Premeditated Tanking?

Recommended Posts

 Lol,Haven't the dolphins, jets, and bills basically been tanking for the last 18 years for Kraft?

 

It wasn't till last season that any of them acquired a potential franchise QB(Darnold,Allen). And all those lousy HC hires. Nick Saban there only 1 season until he left for Alabama. That sure was a break for Kraft. 

It was another break for kraft when the colts with Peyton Manning left their division and went to the afc south..haha

No. You're mistaking "tanking" with "complete and total incompetence."

 

Trust me, the AFC East teams hate the Patriots even more than you guys do. And that's saying something. haha

Tanking IMO is made up by the media and seems plausible to us fans but absolutely does not happen in sports...except maybe NBA, for sure not Hockey and i dont think Football.

Have the Dolphins named a head coach yet? Why would any respectable coach agree to take that job if they're planning on tanking? He will get fired and never get hired again.

Ya was it a break for the Pats or the Colts? I mean Brady’s first win was a complete man handling of the Colts.  People forget how weak the AFC South was for years as well.. Texans, Jags, and Titans..  were just sad sad teams.. heck the Colts would have owned the south still if Luck didn’t get hurt.

It was Definitely a Break for both teams. They both got the opportunity to Dominate weak divisions and have atleast one home playoff game instead of playing on the road on wild card weekend.

Ya but Luck was rusty and when he hit his stride you guys were unstoppable in the South.

    • Leonard was a stat monster, 1st team all conf multiple years, conference D MVP multiple years. Banogu was 1st team all conf mult years and great stats. Okereke at best was honorary mention.    Leonard was a small school question mark. Banogu comes from a team that's known for scheme and lack of technique/position coaching. But both were tops in their conference. Okereke was much less of a standout at a school known to have great S&C and defensive coaching.   Not saying Okereke won't be good, or even great. What I am saying, is, Okereke had much better S&C, much better coaching, etc. (than the other two), but never achieved the recognition or performance level of the other two. I simply think his ceiling is lower. I definitely think Banogu has the most potential to translate over the next couple years.
    • Look at your line I put into bold...      "there's no reason to think he doesn't have 5 years of elite production left."   Holy Cow.    No reason?     How about because very few linebackers,  especially middle linebackers with all the pounding they take,  last to age 33-34 playing elite football.    It just rarely  happens.   There may be an exception to the rule.   But that's it.    Most times,  the level of play falls off pretty dramatically.   Do you see Chris Ballard giving up a 2nd round pick or more to get Wagner?    I don't.   After what you've seen from Chris Ballard for two and a half years,  I'm not sure why you'd think that?
    • Fair post.   Good post.    My bad.    I know what I did wrong,  but no need to rehash it.    I was wrong.     Apologies to all, especially @Superman who I accidentally offended.  
    • Yeah, Banogu or to me it's Okereke. 
    • Things did not go our way tonight but I will take how the standings are for now being that July is half over. We have been fortunate that the Cards and Brewers have struggled more than we have. At this point in the season we just have to play well enough to get into the playoffs at 50-44, then anything can happen. I am hoping Hamels is back by mid August.
