They are basically eliminated from the playoffs so see it as rooting for a worse draft position. 

This is exactly it! Thanks.

 

Rooting for the Pats to win this weekend is, in fact, rooting for them to LOSE DRAFT CAPITAL. I will always root for things that hurt the Pats, so I will definitely be rooting for them to win out this season!

Theory.

Would Belichick purposely lose to the Jets to avoid having to face Lawrence for the next decade?

 

That could make for a interesting game if both teams wanted to lose.   I don't think players tank on purpose, but coaches a GM's do.  We'll see if both the Jets and Pats have a big covid outbreak in the next week.

How much longer is Belichick even gonna coach? He's nearly 70 years old. I'd bet that he leaves the job before Lawrence even becomes a factor in the NFL.

 

And by the way, it's still the Jets. One of the most shoddily run teams in the league. If they ever get their ownership, front office and coaching staff properly situated, maybe they'll be a problem for the AFC East. Just adding Lawrence -- even if he's as good as expected -- probably isn't enough for them to be a major threat. (For reference, we had five and a half years of Luck, and won the division twice.)

I would not put it past him.  there were some whispers of them tanking a game late in the season a while back for playoff matchups.  a loss could help their own draft position too

 

wouldnt be surprised if either or both teams make a questionable move to lose this one

I would be so irate. But, I think you might be right. 
 

I think he might wait to go to Jarrett Stidham during the Jets game and shut down some players.

The jets would have to win 2 games and the jags to lose out to not get the number 1 pick

No way will I root for that diva quarterback. And well said about those scumbags.

According to this it would be the Jags.

 

https://jetsxfactor.com/2020/12/10/jaguars-strength-of-schedule-tiebreaker-lead-over-jets-is-nearly-insurmountable/

 

Three-fourths of a season is child’s play as it relates to Trevor Lawrence. Twelve losses can’t even get it done. The 0-12 New York Jets haven’t won a game, and they still can’t feel secure in their No. 1 draft status in the next NFL draft.

Although the Jacksonville Jaguars are one game behind in the tank standings, the Jets and their fans can only look at the lead as a half-game difference.

The strength of schedule tiebreaker race is all but over, which means a tie between the Jets and Jags will go to the latter. It’s just that simple—unless a miracle occurs over the season’s final four weeks.

I mean I don’t know who I’d rather see in the playoffs. Bill is working some evil magic to be getting in the hunt with the terrible Cam Newton. I don’t know if I want whatever it is he’s cooking. 

Even if the Patriots got in Colts wouldn't play them til AFC Championship

I hear you about the enduring threat of the Patriots, but I think it's too late for them. they are two wins down from the 7th seed Dolphins and two down from the in-the-hunt Ravens. They are three wins down from the Colts, and I have no idea who owns that tie breaker if the Colts lose and and the Pats win out. Either way you look at it, they need some serious luck. Same obviously goes for the Raiders now that they lose again. They basically need a team to have a meltdown.

I guess I would rather the Ravens, Raiders and Pats all continue to lose so there is separation between the playoff teams (like Colts and Dolphins) so we clinch a playoff spot sooner.

 

I don't really care whether we are 6th or 7th.  As it stands now either way we would go on the road and play a tough team.  

 

I would also rather see the Colts win and take the division - maybe even move up the the #3 seed.

 

So with all of that silly logic I can still root for the Pats to lose!

Don’t really care. Apart from McDaniels losing more street cred. I dislike him more than Brady or Billy-Bob Hoodie....

 

McDaniels will never coach again in the NFL short of New England promoting him to head coach. And I think that's highly unlikely

 

Colts dodged a major bullit there

    • Ok, I'll say it.  If your Wisconsin CB has to run after a WR, would it be a Wildgoose chase?
    • Very true.  Even day two.  After Pitts the drop off is significant.  There will be FAs with experience that would be just as good or better.  
    • I disagree with this. I believe Ballard didn't want to pay up for an EDGE rusher. He admitted he wanted Autry back, and he went to the Titans instead. That was plan A. Afterward, he signed Rochell and re-signed Muhammed to somewhat stabilize the D-Line. He is now having to decide whether to re-sign Houston, or draft an EDGE in the first two rounds.    We are being forced to see what we have in Banogu, Turay, and Lewis. They are all 2nd round picks and it's sink or swim for them. They definitely aren't better options than Autry and Houston. I would say the same about the top EDGE rushers in FA this year. Cheaper? Yes. Better? No. Right now, we don't have an EDGE rusher that we can depend on. Maybe that changes, but EDGE is our biggest weakness on the team, bar none. At least with LT, it can be masked with Q and the rest of the O-Line along with some solid depth we signed. We are literally masking the entire EDGE spot with Buckner right now, and we're fully dependant on signing Houston back, or drafting an EDGE rusher that makes an immediate impact without knowing yet if Banogu, Turay, or Lewis improves.   Unfortunately, losing Autry hurt pretty badly. That will be hard to make up without some luck.
    • Tremble has been one of my early favorites   I saw one of the commentators mention the other day, that Tremble has had issues with drops   The little games I have watched, they didnt throw much to him...... is this an issue?    
    • You may end up being right, but lets be honest, these 4 are not playmakers, they are just familiar names to us on a roster.   We need some pass rush to get this defensive scheme to work. None of these 4 have proven that they can bring this on a consistent basis   When the offensive line was weak, we drafted both Q and Smith in the same year   I hope they take the same tact this year. 1 early, and 1 mid rounds that can develop.   Also, 3 of these 4 are free agents next year. We will have some churn next year.   We had better load up at an important position, IMHO
