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.

    • Bingo, Yoda nailed it. This is why so many fans are frustrated. Jacoby will do his best, but there is a significant drop-off there. Abso-Bloody Lootly Yoda.  You pinpointed why this presser is so hard to accept as fans IA17. Love of the game vs the pound of flesh that it ultimately takes in the end.  Yes, Luck truly sounds drained emotionally. Really difficult to watch. Mind & body not in sync anymore. Feel for ya brother.  Love me some Rivers man, but he's only got about 2-3 elite yrs left IMO. Drew's arm is beginning to weaken late in season now that's why the Saints rely on their RBs more now than ever before. Dak doesn't have the arm to win inside the pocket & I refuse to accept anything from the Cowboys franchise ever.  What size are we talkin' bout here though? Tiny or gigantic CSPR?   Johnny you wanna take this one? Thanks.      One can never go wrong with the "Man In Black" you know...
    • As far as Kelly, you can’t deny the way he just takes the offense down the field. I don’t think his size is an issue. I think character and leadership are and he would have to really prove himself in the locker room to ever be seriously considered by Reich and Ballard. He’s done well enough so far but JB has earned his leadership on the team.
    • QB + LT should be a priority right now. QB for obvious reason. LT because Castonzo isn't getting younger and we experienced how important it is to protect your franchise signal caller. 
    • THe Colts FO has been so high on Jacoby, plus Ballard has said we have a really good team...we have literally painted ourselves in a corner now.  They may back him to the point as to not attempt to acquire another high pick at QB.
    • Chad Kelly has elite arm talent.  Like Mahomes-level arm talent.   Think he runs a 4.6 40 as well.  The kid has some elite attributes, he's just raw and a little undersized compared to Brissett.
