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.

    • Personally, I don’t think he did much of anything that warrants suspension. All he might have done was punish his kid, and if that’s illegal, the world is getting too soft. However, it’s just things that have happened in the past that make me second guess everything, so personally I would have handed out a suspension just so I wouldn’t get complaints and everything from people about how this case is “no better than Zeke’s”. It’s more about keeping the public happy, though I think the entirety of this thing is a joke and parents spanking their child isn’t something that should mean suspension. 
    • Actually it says "it is believed" that we did. He also believes we haven't spent squat and have MOST of our Cap $$$ still available. NOT!
    • Due diligence.  Kick the tires on anything you can and maybe you catch lightning in a bottle. 
    • Mack got $90M gtd...I can't see Clowney getting close to that. I think it would probably be ~$60-65M...which is what Lawrence and Clark both got...and maybe not even that much.    It's not my money...but I would do it. The Colts have the money...and I don't think the Colts will find a better player to add to the team in FA...Clowney is a 3x consecutive Pro Bowler with double digit sack upside...heading into his prime...whose skill sets fits perfectly into a position where they have a long-term need.    To put it another way...I would much rather give Clowney a deal and add him to this team to try and win a Super Bowl...than spend that cash on extending guys 1-2 years before they are due. The Colts have a nice 3-4 year window where they can be a lot more aggressive.   Signing someone like Clowney will make a dent...but it won't hurt them long-term. There is a very good chance this team will have left upwards of $80M on the table over this four-year period. Right now, they have to spend $44M in cash next offseason just to get 89% (using OTC and estimating a $10M increase for the salary cap). They will make that up for sure (in FA and extensions)...but they have the flexibility to commit to a player like Clowney. I get being lean during those first two years...but not now.   The key for me would be the draft capital. If it's only one of those 2nds...I am very intrigued.
