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

    • I simply love this post.    Specific things I appreciate 1) Young player development. That is such a good point. It strikes me as entirely possible that they did not go for FA edge rusher because they want to see the growth from Turey and Banagu.    2) Free agency is not over with. They will draft next week, assess their roster and add a few players. Houston,Kerrigan and Ingram will still be available next week if they deem their pass rush still needs something. I would think a vet QB is still very possible as well.    3) I believe they will take a OT or DL with their first pick but not because those are the glaring needs but because the likelihood is there will be an available player highly rated on their board at one of those positions. However if a CB for example is the highest rated guy by a long shot, it will surprise me not at all that corner becomes the pick.    Ballard and transparency - you are right on that.  He will hint at what is to come.  One of his core values is to build the lines on both sides of the ball. I will not be shocked if multiple players on the line are taken beyond just OT and DE.    Anyway - well done.     
    • And they haven’t had clear needs in previous drafts?
    • If a player they love falls, regardless of position, they will take him.    I do expect that round 1 will be an Edge and round 2 will be a Tackle, but they won’t reach to far down their board.   For example, if they love Micah Parsons (just using him as an example) and he falls, I could see them taking him. Fill the holes later.
    • Jared...    it’s not that I don’t believe what the Colts put out, but here’s what I don’t do.   I don’t look at the pieces and announce with 100 percent certainty that they’re talking about a specific player — like you did with Liam Eichenberg.    So I don’t jump to conclusions on what the Colts put out.   I don’t say “they’re talking about this player or that player.”      I accept what the Colts put out because they’ve given me no reason not to.  But, frankly,  they’re not putting out as much as you think they are.  You can imply most anything with clever editing.    I jumped the gun in the Jags video.  I didn’t know what it was.  I was reacting to your 100 percent certainty that you knew who they were talking about.   That it was fact.   I was trying to offer some cold water to cool off a highly likely wrong guess.     Believe what you want.  But guessing who a team is talking about based on the edited video is not likely to lead to a correct answer.     
    • If we can get 2 out of 3 from the Brewers I will take it. That would put us a game out of 1st place at the end of the weekend. Brewers swept the Padres which was surprising.
