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

    • TRADE 9:   Steelers get pick No.111 from Jaguars via Bengals Jaguars get pick No.128 and No.140   @EastStreet @NFLfan
    • Hey everyone.  I wasn't able to commit to participating in this, but have read through all the rounds of the draft you've done.  I don't follow college football overall that closely, mainly watch IU games and other big games I'm able to watch.   Just wanted to thank you all for educating me on this year's draft prospects so I'll be able to watch the Draft with a bit of knowledge on some of these players.   It's really helpful when I see names in the draft that I've read about on these mock drafts.   Again, thanks to all of you!  GO COLTS!!!
    • Honestly?    I have no idea?   I think this may be unprecedented...   a QB dealing with epilepsy?    I think it’s unknown.   My fear, is that teams don’t like Big Question marks at that position.   I wouldn’t begin to know.   I hope for the best...  (but I fear the worst — draft wise).  
    • I don't understand the bolded one.   Why do this.     https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/31303703/nfl-owners-approve-replay-change-other-new-rules-2021-season Approved a relaxation of rules for the numbers that players of certain positions can wear because of expanded practice squads. Running backs, wide receivers, tight ends, defensive backs and linebackers can all wear numbers in the single digits now if they choose. Based on preexisting NFL rules, players who want to change their numbers this season will have to buy out the inventory of the NFL's manufacturing partners. This wouldn't apply to players who give notice in 2021 that they want to change numbers in 2022.   Approved a one-year experiment in an attempt to make it easier to recover onside kicks. In 2021, the receiving team on kickoffs will be limited to nine players within 25 yards of the ball. Last season, NFL teams recovered only three of 67 onside kicks, the lowest total and recovery rate since at least 2001. As a result, the Philadelphia Eagles proposed that teams be given an option to gain 15 yards on one offensive play from their own 25-yard line to retain possession after a score. Tabled a rule that would have expanded the area where players are prohibited from blocking below the waist. McKay said that there is enough support to pass the rule now but that several teams had questions that will take some time to address. It could be revisited next month. Eliminated overtime in preseason games.   Changed a rule that will now force a loss of down if two passes are completed behind the line of scrimmage.   Approved a rule change that ensures the enforcement of all accepted penalties during successive try attempts, defined as an opportunity for a team to score one or two additional points during one scrimmage down.   Did not act on a "spot or choose" proposal from the Ravens for the winner of the overtime coin toss. In that scenario, the team would have the option to choose either which team will have the first possession of overtime or where the ball would be spotted.   Decided to include taunting among its points of emphasis for 2021. McKay clarified that the emphasis would be directed not at celebrations but toward acrimonious interaction among players.   Tabled a proposal from the Buffalo Bills that would have pushed back interviews for general manager and head-coaching positions until after the championship round of the playoffs and would have prevented hires until after the Super Bowl. It will be further studied.   Completed a study of the sharp drop in offensive holding during the 2020 season. McKay said that Walt Anderson, the NFL's senior vice president of training and development, would clarify the standard and put together a video for teams to consume before the 2021 season.
    • Need to edit something: the only restriction I had was driving. I couldn't get a license until I went at least 6 months with no problems. Then I had to get a doctor's permission to try for a driver's license.
